Small Business Outreach
Promoting Best and Promising Evidence-based Practices
The Small Business Outreach
project of the Healthier Workforce Center for
Excellence is dedicated to sharing the experiences of small and mid-sized
businesses in Iowa and Nebraska that have successfully implemented health, safety, and
wellness programs for their employees.
We encourage the adoption of the evidence-based practices that result in healthier employees (and their families), fewer injuries, less absenteeism and underperformance, reduced employee turnover, and better return on investment.
We also study ways to speed the dissemination and translation of these successful programs and practices to other small and mid-sized Iowa businesses across all business sectors.
We are currently conducting site visits and developing vignettes from site visits with Iowa and Nebraska employers to document their experiences and successes with employee health, safety and wellness programs. Model employers and programs will be shared through the Center’s monthly Healthier Workforce e-bulletin, website, social media channels, public presentations, or short vignettes.
To share your story with employee health, wellness or safety programs in your workplace, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 319-335-4200.
