Diversity in worksite health promotion

The World Health Organization has identified the work setting as one of the most important settings for health promotion. There are numerous interventions for health promotion at the worksite, ranging from corporate fitness and providing fruit at work, to vitality coaching and mindfulness training. Research shows that effectiveness and reach differs between different subgroups.

A possible explanation is that diversity in culture, SES, gender, etc. has not been taken into account adequately, despite growing attention for diversity. Hence, creating insight in the way diversity is given shape in worksite health promotion is warranted. You can contribute to getting more insight by exploring a particular topic in your BSc thesis.
Possible research questions are:

  • How is diversity conceptualised in worksite health promotion research
  • To what extent is diversity taken into account in worksite health promotion interventions?
