Your leadership team has asked you to develop a workplace health assessment plan, and they have provided you with some specific details about the office. You may add additional details to further flesh out the workplace environment, as appropriate for your plan. For example, you may choose to add that the workplace has an on-site gym or multiple walking trails nearby. In addition, you may wish to specify that the workplace provides two weeks of paid of paternity leave or is flexible with break time if it is used for exercise, as opposed to just meals.
Specifically, you must address the following:
• In addition to tobacco use, the leadership team has asked that you identify two additional examples of items of concern, which may be negatively impacting workplace health at the organization. Then, they would like you to specifically address the following for both:
o Explain how to determine the incidence and prevalence of the identified concerns in the workplace, and explain how this data will provide insight into the overall health of the workplace. Consider the intersections between your two examples and the overall health of the workplace; for example, you already considered the behavioral components of smoking within a population (the workplace, in this case).
o Explain how to determine the mortality and morbidity of the identified concerns in the workplace, and explain how this data will provide insight into the overall health of the workplace. Note that when discussing mortality and morbidity here, the leadership team has asked that you do so in terms of employment—that is, with regard to the health of the workplace in the broadest sense.
• Explain how you will use the data collected on the health concerns to ultimately promote workplace health.
• Your leadership team has asked that you develop the workplace health assessment plan to be focused on the current office environment, but they have also considered moving the office and acquiring a larger company. They are therefore curious how the plan might be different if the type of environment changed. To address their question, explain how changes to the office environment might impact workplace health, using at least two discrete examples. For example, what impact might a different location, or a more or less diverse population, have on workplace health? Is physical relocation and/or acquisition and merger a concern for mortality and morbidity of employees?
