Workplace Health Promotion -
B.2. Planning and Setting Priorities

Planning for workplace health promotion should be integrated into the social security institution’s strategic planning.

In facilitating and enabling workplace health promotion, the social security institution must plan services which focus clearly on the needs of the target group (its client enterprises/organizations).

The elements of the workplace health promotion programme containing the workplace health promotion services for its clients are developed during the planning process. They include strategies for defining goals, implementation and evaluation. Careful planning is critical to the programme’s success.

Programme planning should be based on results of the situational and health needs assessments conducted within a workplace and identified priorities for action. Stakeholders must be involved. Programme planning should be strategic (including broad-based, long-term strategies to achieve programme goals) and operational (involving the specific actions or steps necessary to implement and evaluate the programme).
