Find Out—and Improve—Your Workplace Health Score

Healthy employees mean a healthier business. But how can you be sure that your workplace is in tip-top shape to support employee wellness?

The new CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard.

Designed to help employers, HR managers, health benefit managers, health education staff, occupational nurses, and others responsible for worksite health promotion, the ScoreCard  assesses current health promotions, identifies gaps in those efforts and pinpoints evidence-based strategies for building a comprehensive workplace wellness program that improves employee health and well-being.

Strategies for health promotion include topics such as:

  • Tobacco use
  • Nutrition
  • Physical activity
  • Weight management
  • Stress management
  • Depression
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Pre-diabetes and diabetes
  • Heart attack and stroke
  • Maternal health and lactation support
  • Vaccine-preventable diseases
  • Occupational health and safety

This newly revised ScoreCard also offers insight into four new topic areas:

  • Cancer
  • Alcohol and other substance use
  • Sleep and fatigue
  • Musculoskeletal disorders

With the new CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard, you can establish benchmarks and track improvements over time. State health departments can also help companies find ways to create healthier workplaces, establish best practice benchmarks, track improvements in worksite health promotion programs and more.

Use the CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard to integrate your health program in order to improve employee health, eliminate or reduce workplace hazards, and foster workplace wellness and productivity.
