Research

work2health believe that good quality research helps to generate new and innovative ideas that benefit practice in the field of workplace health promotion. We are always keen to participate in research that informs and contributes to what we do and how we do it. Current and recent research that we have been involved in includes:

The MEPMIS Project

The MEPMIS Project (Maximising Performance by Minimising the Impact of Substances in the Workplace) is working to tackle the problem of the inappropriate use of alcohol and drugs by employees. The project is specifically aimed at SMEs, and has researched in depth the needs of managers in SMEs in relation to effectively handling the issue of alcohol and drug use in employees. The project is creating an e-learning package, accessed via the MEPMIS website

Promoting Wellbeing@Work Study.

work2health are currently partnering the University of Warwick in this study, which aims to evaluate the impact of proactive employee wellbeing interventions on organisational performance. A focus of the study is to explore the contextual issues (for example communication, leadership, nature of industry) that influence the successful introduction of such interventions.

‘Stakeholder Involvement’ Research Paper.

Commissioned by the World health Organization work2health prepared a background research paper for the January 2008 World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The paper critically examines the role of the key stakeholders in workplace health promotion and the interactions between them and considers examples of multi-stakeholder programmes.
