Global Corporate Challenge Evaluation: The evaluation of a low-cost, low-impact physical-activity workplace intervention

Project: Research

Project Description

We propose to evaluate a workplace based intervention- the Global Corporate Challenge, which engages workplaces and their employees to participate in a four month pedometer-based program aimed at increasing physical activity levels. This project is a before and after evaluation of 1000 participants. The evaluation will assess changes in chronic disease risk factors at the end of the program and again one and two years later. The evaluation will also analyse predictors of success within the program. The outcome of this evaluation will both give an indication of the potential of such programs to impact on future chronic disease in the population, and provide insight into factors that might improve the success of such programs.
