The fourth version of the Worksite Wellness Resource Kit (March 2018) is a tool to assist worksites with implementing strategies that have been proven to be effective. This fourth edition of the kit provides additional information based on feedback from users and an expert panel that assisted with writing and editing the latest edition.
The emotional well-being section has been expanded and a new financial wellness section has been added, as well as an update of content throughout the document. The kit provides information to implement a broad range of strategies or programming: some strategies will require very little or no resources while others may require considerable resources. The kit shows you ways to get started and make a difference in the health of your employees, regardless of the size of your worksite and its available resources.

What Works in Worksites P-40133 (PDF) is a companion document to the Worksite Wellness Resource Kit. This two-page summary of evidence-based and promising strategies focuses on helping people eat healthier and be more active in the workplace.
The resource kit is a project of Wisconsin's Nutrition and Physical Activity Program, Diabetes Prevention and Control Program, Heart Disease and Stroke Program, Comprehensive Cancer Program, and Arthritis Program. Unlike many other resource kits, the focus is on reducing the risk factors to chronic disease: poor nutrition, inactivity, mental health and tobacco use. Worksites will have a step-by-step guide to use in:
- Getting started
- Assessing their worksite,
- Identifying what types of activities to implement,
- Linking to valuable information on how to implement strategies, and
- Determining ways to measure effectiveness.
