Abstract BackgroundThe workplace is an important environment to promote people's health. However little is known on which factors contribute to implementation of workplace health interventions from the viewpoints of employees or managers. We aimed to synthesise evidence from qualitative research with these stakeholders on the characteristics of effective workplace health interventions.MethodsWe conducted comprehensive search to identify relevant studies on stakeholders' views and experiences of workplace health interventions. A variety of sources were utilised, including contacts with key informants, electronic database and website searching. Studies were assessed for level of quality and data was examined and thematically synthesised. ResultsEvidence from ten qualitative studies demonstrated a variety of intervention characteristics which related to employees or managers views such as: the organisation (managerial support, channels of communication & financial commitment); the intervention provider (the approach, experience, peer advisers, health champions); the intervention programme (ease of uptake, tailored intervention, use of internet, content of activities, advice and frequency of intervention); and its acceptability and accessibility (location, gender target, reducing barriers, time).ConclusionThe findings from the qualitative studies raised key points that have implications for business stakeholders and researchers; including making a financial commitment to workplace health, embedding interventions into the workplace, and implementing formal and informal organised social support. These characteristics could assist with the design and delivery of the right types of interventions and help create healthier environments to support staff wellbeing.
