Why Evaluate?
  • Understand what works and what doesnt
  • Justify worth of programme
  • Improve programme performance
  • Reduce wastage
  • Contribute to body of evidence
  • Refocusing direction of the Workplace Health
    Programmes

4
What to Evaluate?
  • 2 main evaluations
  • Quantitative improvement of data
  • Qualitative assessment of interventions

5
What to Compare with?
  • Setting standards
  • Previous data of the company
  • Industry standards
  • National standards
  • Ideal standards

6
Previous Data
  • Data from needs assessment
  • Company health screening results, lifestyle
    survey results
  • Eg percentage of people who have high
    cholesterol, percentage of people who do exercise
    3 times a week for 30 minutes
  • To evaluate after intervention, need to repeat
    assessment and compare

7
Industry Standards
  • Compare your set of data with what can be
    obtained from companies in the same industry
  • Have to ensure almost similar staff demographic
  • Difficult to administer due to confidentiality
    issues

8
National Standards
  • National Health Survey results published by
    Ministry of Health
  • NHS 2007 results will be out this year
  • Comparing data with NHS results
  • Understanding of where the company stand in the
    big picture of Singapore

9
Ideal Standards
  • Does being consistent with NHS results, means
    that you are OK?
  • Some issues should have an ideal standard
  • Eg Smoking rate should be zero
  • Exercise rate should be based on 5 times a
    week for 30 minutes each occasion
  • Have to be realistic and evidence based
  • Eg Having no staff with high cholesterol is not
    realistic

10
Important Data to Evaluate
  • Individual
  • Health related
  • Health promotion related (lifestyle modification)
  • Psychological health related
  • Facility

11
Health Related
  • Disease risk factors
  • Cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Important as lowering will lead to less health
    care cost (Primary Prevention)
  • Evaluate whether intervention leads to decrease
    disease risk factors

  • Focus on lifestyle and behaviour modification
  • Percentage of staff who
  • Exercise regularly
  • Eat 2 or more servings of fruits and vegetables a
    day
  • Dont smoke
  • Trim fat from meat before eating etc
  • Evaluate whether intervention is able to change
    mindsets and behaviours

14
Health Promotion Related
  • Other than evaluating percentages can also
    evaluate function improvements
  • Eg Conduct fitness testing to assess function
  • Can also evaluate improvements in health
    promotion knowledge of staff

15
Psychological Health Related
  • STRESS levels
  • Evaluate company culture, work life balance,
    staff morale etc

16
Facility Evaluation
  • Is there a change in food provided by the
    canteen?
  • Has there been more water coolers?
  • Healthier items in snack dispensing machines?
  • Implementing designated smoking areas?
  • Evaluate management support and you as a sales
    person

17
Qualitative Evaluation of Interventions
  • Evaluate your marketing skills, perception of
    your intervention by your targeted participants
  • Eg
  • Participation rate
  • Satisfaction of participants
  • Drop out rate etc
  • Provide immediate directions as to where you may
    have gone wrong
  • Poor marketing, planning and organisation
  • Poor matching with staff expectation
  • Knowledge gap about importance of intervention

18
Stakeholder Interest
  • The BIG picture
  • Reduced health care cost
  • Reduced staff turnover and manpower cost
  • Improving staff morale and productivity
  • Work with HR to generate data from year to year
  • Evaluating your WHP goal in the long run
