We’ve been challenging low impact employee wellness initiatives for over 25 years. Our model is better and we achieve better outcomes than the industry average*. Our results cover multiple industry sectors, many of which have significant barriers to effective engagement. Sectors include rail, shipping, transport, manufacturing, mining, office, construction, local government, warehousing, distribution and logistics.

How do we do it? By targeting the hard to change people, with engaging content and practical lifestyle strategies that can be easily applied. That’s the Health By Design difference.


*Please note, the engagement figure above is ‘average monthly engagement’ across a 12-month period. HBD methodology indicates that the minimum required touch point frequency to elicit sustainable behaviour change is 4-6weeks.

The Health By Design Difference

We know that not everyone is ready to get involved in workplace health programs and initiatives. You need a program that is tailored to everyone in your workforce.

Traditional programs simply assume that everyone is ready to get involved and wants to be involved. Behaviour change theory clearly tells us this is not the case.

At Health by Design, our programs are designed to engage not only the ‘converted’ (action and maintenance), but also those in the precontemplation, contemplation and preparation stages. Our programs, services and materials are designed to target individuals across the entire behaviour change spectrum.

HBD International Client, DENSO, Wins C. Everett Koop National Health Award

HBD International is proud to announce that DENSO – a HBD client of over five years – has been announced as the winner of the 2022 C. Everett Koop National Health Award for efforts to promote a culture of health within the workplace.

The prestigious award – named for Charles Everett Koop, the 13th Surgeon General of the United States and a significant public health administrator in the 20th century – recognises outstanding worksite health promotion and improvement programs. More specifically, the award acknowledges organisations that are able to document and verify their results, both in terms of health improvement and positive economic impact.

The program yielded significant health risk reduction across the employee population, with improvements in measures of blood pressure, cholesterol, physical activity, diet, sleep, social support, tobacco use and alcohol consumption.
