Access evidence base

Academic research

We have selected some of the strongest academic research regarding interventions to support employees with managing obesity at work and provided summaries below.  All studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals and are presented under three headings: Comparative Reviews, Organisational Interventions and Individual Interventions.  At the time of this review there were no interventions at the manager level.

 

This topic does not include health promotion interventions or physical activity interventions at work.  That said, the health promotion and physical activity at work literature is useful to consider alongside the obesity at work literature and will be able to be found under the topics health promotion and physical activity, when these are populated.

Practitioner research

Some of the strongest practitioner evidence regarding interventions to support employees with obesity at work has been summarised below.  These are empirical studies or work of publishable quality that provide case studies and reviews of interventions conducted in the workplace.  The studies are presented under only one heading: Organisational Interventions.

 

This topic does not include health promotion interventions or physical activity interventions at work.  That said, the health promotion and physical activity at work literature is useful to consider alongside the obesity at work literature and will be able to be found under the topics health promotion and physical activity, when these are populated.

Access tools and guidance

Tools for individual employees

A number of tools are available to support employees with weight management and obesity. We have provided some useful links to resources from reputable sources.

 

Physical activity and health promotion tools will also be very relevant to weight management and obesity, however these will be in separate topics on the Hub which will be populated at a later date. 

Tools for organisations and practitioners

These resources have been developed to help practitioners take an organisational approach to supporting employees with obesity in the workplace. 

 

Physical activity and health promotion tools will also be very relevant to weight management and obesity, however these will be in separate topics on the Hub which will be populated at a later date. 

Access national policy implications

White papers and position statements

A number of documents that relate to national policy implications are provided below. The resources are aimed at helping organisations to implement national policies and laws relating to obesity and weight management at work.
