WorkHealthy AmericaSM

NC Prevention Partners helped businesses improve employee health and decrease healthcare costs through WorkHealthy America, a unique web-based approach to creating healthy workplace environments. WorkHealthy AmericaSM focused on four core topics: tobacco-free places and people, nutrition and healthy food, physically active workplaces, and a culture of wellness. Employers conducted a web-based assessment of their workplace’s wellness policies, benefits and environment. Then they received 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 provided 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 created a community where companies actively learned from and shared with each other. Since 2006, over 340 organizations across North Carolina 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.
