An exploration of how Australian universities are improving the health of their employees

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

Despite Health Promotion Programs (HPPs) being heralded for placing health at the centre of employee and business objectives, the process of formulating different types of programs and their implementation has been overlooked. This paper reviews different types of HPPs and their implementation within eight Australian universities through an analysis of publicly available website documentation. An examination of the health issues and health risk factors targeted reveals what type of HPPs are currently being used by sampled universities. The nature of the activities and processes used for implementing HPPs and managing their performance is also examined to determine the input of stakeholders. The paper concludes that HPPs prepare employee health for measurement by evaluating promotion as opposed to health outcomes
