About the Survey

This benchmarking survey addresses a range of topics relating to the administration and management of worksite health promotion initiatives. It also provides a comprehensive review of evidence-based health promotion interventions in the worksite using a validated tool, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Worksite Health ScoreCard. This tool will guide a company through a process of assessing the use of best practices to identify gaps and opportunities for strategy and program enhancement. It also provides worksites with an opportunity to compare their score with other businesses who completed the validation study.

The CDC Scorecard asks specific questions about your organization and your wellness program. To document answers and receive information from stakeholders before entering answers into the online survey, download a PDF copy of the CDC Worksite 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.
