worksite health promotion
Departmental Bulletin Paper
The rising health-care expenditure is a serious problem in Japan. A number of papers have suggested that corporations gain significant benefits that are improvement of personal health, an improvement of productivity, a reduction of absenteeism, a lessening of health-care expenditures, and an enhancement of corporate image from the introduction of employee fitness programs. However，there have been relatively few experimental studies to date in Japan. It is guessed that the present situation is causcd by the lack of understanding for worksite health promotion.
The purpose of this study are to inquire into worksite health promotion programs in Tokushima and to examine the direction of its programs. A survey was conducted in August 1995，and the questionnaires were mailed to a total of 449 corporations. 209 effective samples were returned，giving a response rate of 46 .5 percent. The major findings are summarized as follows: (1) The worksite health promotion programs were not various. (2) Thc operating organizations of worksite helth promotion lacked the qualified staffs and specialists in the field of health promotion. (3) The health insurance expenditures are increasing in the corporations. These results indicated that worksite health promotion has to recognize as a business strategy instead of the welfare for employee.
