ABOUT THIS INDICATOR

Relevant Route Map action:
Maximise promotion of healthy lives approach in public sector through clear, consistent vision.
National, Health Board.
Rationale for including this indicator:
The aim of this indicator is to assess the take-up of Healthy Working Lives Awards by companies. The indicator will show the level of award (Gold, Silver, Bronze) as well as the number of companies working towards their Bronze award - hence providing both an indication of the general awareness and take-up of the scheme, and the proportion of companies providing the highest level of support.
A high level of evidence exists in literature for the effectiveness of multi-component workplace interventions with a low to moderate rating for potential population effectiveness. The <acronym>ScotPHN</acronym> engagement process for the Route Map assessed the action as having high impact with low to medium effort.
Factors influencing this indicator:
- Availability and affordability of healthy choices.
