  • Employers are increasingly implementing workplace health promotion programs to address declining health of their employees and rising healthcare costs. This heightened interest has been coupled with increased scrutiny from critics who cite return on investment analyses as validation for valuing workplace health promotion. The objective of this paper is to investigate the guidelines for developing effective workplace health promotion programs using WHO's Healthy Workplace Model and a compilation of literature on workplace health promotion. The result is a guide to planning, implementing, evaluating, and sustaining workplace health promotion programs along with the conclusion that comprehensive programs sustainably embedded in a culture of wellness have valuable positive impacts on organizations and their employees.
