Thanks for your interest in the Health and Productivity Management (HPM) Toolkit. The Toolkit provides access to video, audio and written content -- including more than 1,000 pages of academic and research material -- that you can use to build your skills in HPM. The Toolkit also offers Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit.


An audio tutor provides instruction in each of the Toolkit's chapters. Topics range from techniques for measuring health and productivity to skills for building an HPM program in the workplace and gaining the support of senior management. Also included are supplementary reference materials, as well as case studies, checklists and other tools you can use in your HPM program. A bibliography includes links to a collection of research and scholarly articles in leading journals.


The HPM Toolkit is a subscription-based service.


Subscriptions are $229 for non-members (Free to ACOEM members). The initial subscription fee provides one year of online access to the kit, which includes periodic research updates, additional case studies and other new material. Yearly subscription fee after the initial year is $95 (Free to ACOEM members.)

Companies that build a culture of health by focusing on the well-being and safety of their workforce may yield greater value for their investors, according to a study published in the September issue of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (JOEM), official publication of the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM). The stock market performance of companies that had received ACOEM’s Corporate Health Achievement Award (CHAA), which annually recognizes the healthiest and safest companies in North America, was conducted at HealthNEXT LLC and analyzed by lead authors Raymond Fabius, MD, and R. Dixon Thayer, and colleagues. Companies that receive the award must be engaged in demonstrable and robust efforts to reduce health and safety risks among their employees.

 

CDC Worksite Health Scorecard
The CDC recently released a Worksite Health ScoreCard which is a tool designed to help employers assess and improve health promotion in their worksites. Using a validation study by the Emory University Institute for Health and Productivity, the HSC has been determined to be a valid and reliable tool for employers to use in assessing health promotion programs aimed at preventing heart disease, stroke and related conditions among employees.
