The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) and the Worksite Wellness Council of Massachusetts are collaborating on a statewide benchmarking survey to gather information on existing policies, practices, and programs that promote and protect employee health and well-being. This benchmarking survey will address a range of topics relating to the administration and management of worksite health promotion initiatives. It will also provide a comprehensive review of program details using a validated tool, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Workplace Health Scorecard.

 

Our goal is to use the results from this survey to compare against similar surveys conducted in the past (2001, 2008 and 2011), allowing us to observe changes over the past thirteen years in providing Massachusetts employees with opportunities to engage in healthy behaviors while at work. The results of the 2014 Benchmarking Survey will be used to determine future programming and support to worksites to help create healthy work environments.
