Business and Industry – STRATEGY 3

Educate business and industry leaders regarding their role as positive agents of change to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles within the workplace and throughout society, giving particular consideration to efforts targeting low-resource populations.


  • Identify key policies and activities that employers, both private and public, can implement to promote physical activity in the workplace.
  • Establish and advance a research agenda on promoting physical activity and health in the workplace, with particular attention to economically challenged, less educated, or underserved populations. Emphasize research on how to improve participation among employees who have the highest risk behaviors.
  • Develop and implement an advocacy agenda. Work with employers to make physical activity practices and policies, such as flex time for activity, commonplace.
