An evaluation of Duke University's LIVE FOR LIFE health promotion program on changes in worker absenteeism.
The effect of an employer-sponsored health promotion program on worker absenteeism is examined over a 4-year period in a group of 4972 Duke University hourly employees. Program participants experienced an average of 4.6 fewer absentee hours in the third year of program availability than did nonparticipants, after controlling for baseline absenteeism, gender, race, education, and age. These results suggest that employer-sponsored health promotion initiatives can have a favorable influence on absenteeism.
