CDC seeks employers to test health program

December 2, 2010

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in collaboration with Emory University in Atlanta, is seeking (.pdf file) employers to field test a new workplace health program.

The CDC Worksite HealthScoreCard examines worksite health promotion interventions, such as programs, policies and environmental supports, that employers can put in place to promote a healthy workforce, reduce health care costs and increase productivity.

CDC is recruiting employers in the following business sizes for the initiative:

  • 10-99 employees
  • 100-249 employees
  • 250-749 employees
  • 750+ employees
Participants will receive a summary benchmarking report that compares their organization's worksite scores with aggregated scores from a national sample of worksites.
