NC Prevention Partners helps businesses improve employee health and decrease healthcare costs through WorkHealthy America, a unique web-based approach to creating healthy workplace environments.
WorkHealthy AmericaSM focuses on four core topics: tobacco-free places and people, nutrition and healthy food, physically active workplaces, and a culture of wellness. Employers conduct a web-based assessment of their workplace’s wellness policies, benefits and environment. Then they receive tailored feedback along with detailed action plans to guide them through the how-to’s of establishing evidence-based wellness policies and programs. NC Prevention Partners provides ongoing training through community Prevention Academies, live webinars, 200+ on-demand tools and case studies, e-bulletins, and blogs to help address common barriers. This support creates a community where companies actively learn from and share with each other.
Since 2006, over 340 organizations across North Carolina have participated in WorkHealthy AmericaSM, including hospitals, schools and state agencies, and a specific focus on businesses in Asheville, Burlington, Charlotte and Greensboro, as well as Burke, Lenoir, and Rowan Counties.
