Motivation for employers to carry out workplace health promotion
This report presents the findings of a literature review that aims to identify the key reasons, arguments and motivations for employers to carry out workplace health promotion (WHP) initiatives, and discusses some of the associated challenges and obstacles. This knowledge can be used to encourage and motivate employers to start WHP. WHP is the combined efforts of employers, workers and society to improve the health and wellbeing of people at work. Developing and sustaining a healthy work environment and workforce has clear benefits for companies and employees, but can also lead to an improvement in social and economic development at local, regional, national and European level.
