The workplace provides an opportunity to reach more than 60% of adults in the United States with evidence-based health promotion. There is substantial research on the effectiveness of specific workplace health promotion programs, but comparatively little research on disseminating and implementing effective programs. Most of the for-profit vendors are focused on working with large employers and with good reason—they can reach large numbers of people more efficiently. Unfortunately, this focus on large employers leaves almost half of the workforce out, and that half is disproportionately at risk for health disparities. There are unique opportunities in workplace health promotion dissemination and implementation research for partnerships between academic researchers, employers, and both for-profit and not-for-profit vendors to identify (and create) effective workplace health promotion programs, tailor them to meet the needs and capacities of employers, and evaluate impact and use the results to improve the programs and increase their reach.

Keywords:   capacity, employers, health disparities, readiness, workplace, workplace health promotion
