Engage your employees
One way of knowing if the priorities are important to your employees would be to
do an employee survey to determine their health interests. Employee health interest
surveys are useful for an organization to inform and engage employees in the workplace
health program, identify the employees’ health priorities, identify which health
promotion activities employees are interested in and gather information about employee
health risks. Employees are less likely to attend and utilize the workplace
health program if the program is not based on their needs and interests.
For a sample employee interest survey, see the
Workplace Health Support Toolkit
or the Additional Resources tab under Program Resources
Caution! At this stage do a quick employee health interest survey to inform your
planning. If you are interested in doing a more comprehensive survey, this can be
an activity in your action plan.
