CDC Workplace Health Promotion Resource Center—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
CDC plans to conduct information collection needed to design and implement a new CDC Workplace Health Promotion Resource Center (Resource Center), where relevant resources will be vetted, catalogued, compiled, and made publicly available to employers and other key stakeholders. Through the Resource Center, CDC will also provide technical Start Printed Page 59630assistance (TA) to employers, with the ultimate aim of improving population health, reducing health care utilization, and improving the productivity of employees. These activities are consistent with CDC's role as the primary Federal agency for protecting health and promoting quality of life through the prevention and control of disease, injury, and disability.
Public and private employers can play a significant role in improving the health and well-being of American workers, but often lack the know-how to do so effectively. CDC plays an important role in providing the tools, resources, and technical expertise to support employers' efforts to build and sustain workplace health promotion (WHP) programs and advance healthy company cultures.
The primary goal of the Resource Center is to serve as a prominent and effective resource for employers wishing to create and sustain best-practice WHP initiatives. The project will take place over two phases. In Phase 1, CDC will conduct formative research via interviews, a web-based survey, and an environmental scan of market research reports and other related documents to obtain direct input on stakeholder needs for the Resource Center. This information will be used to design and create the content and layout of the Resource Center. In Phase 2, CDC will use a consumer satisfaction survey, a TA feedback survey, and a TA Pilot assessment to assess satisfaction with the Resource Center and with the TA support mechanisms designed to support users of the Resource Center. This information will be used to refine and improve the design and content of the Resource Center and TA. The target audience includes employers, business groups, workplace health vendors and consultants, health departments, journalists, and researchers.
OMB approval is requested for three years. The first and second year will be dedicated to the Phase 1 formative work and Resource Center development. In years 2 and 3 (Phase 2), the Resource Center will be launched and technical assistance provided. An evaluation of customer satisfaction with the Resource Center, IC and technical assistance will be conducted. CDC estimates that a total 850 employers and stakeholders will participate in surveys and interviews associated with Phase 1 and that approximately 850 employers and stakeholders will complete the customer satisfaction survey and an additional 3-5 states will participate in the technical assistance pilot. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 138.
