Work Programs that Influence the Home

What is this Tool?

Programs run in the workplace to influence people at home, or while commuting between home and work.

Why Would You Use It?

Workplace promotional programs represent an additional way of reaching people and offer some particular advantages. For example, it may be easier to find ways of increasing the visibility of participation and norm appeal; to collect certain types of information (e.g., self-reported information); and to provide individual and group feedback.

Note for health promoters.

When Would You Use It?

  • the targeted activities begin or end at work (e.g., commuting practices), and/or
  • the targeted behaviours are done both at work and at home (e.g., composting and recycling).

    This approach, used in some of the programs discussed in this Workbook, is promising. The use of work programs that influence the home, however, needs further evaluation. We would benefit from your help - if you are using this approach or know of others who have used it, please contact us.
