HealthPartners Works to Improve Workplace Health

Each year, the average employee spends nearly 2,100 hours at work. That makes good-health promotion and injury prevention all the more important. Such is the focus of two new research articles authored and co-authored by Nico Pronk, vice president of health management and health science officer for HealthPartners. The research, published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, makes a case for the effectiveness of integrated workplace health promotion and health protection programs, and seeks to define exactly what that means.
