Stop Diabetes @ Work for Employers

In the last five years alone, the number of Americans with diabetes has increased by an alarming 27 percent. As the U.S. diabetes epidemic grows, so does the need to address diabetes in the workplace.

Stop Diabetes @ Work provides resources that address diabetes prevention and management:

Online Employer Portal

Access a portal with resources to share with your staff including:

  • Handouts that can be co-branded
  • Newsletter articles and recipes to communicate healthy lifestyle messages on a monthly basis
  • Online and paper tools to track progress
  • Facts to help make the business case for worksite wellness
  • Resources to integrate health into the corporate culture

Online Employee Portal

Visit your own SD@W co-branded webpage that provides seasonal materials to help employees learn about healthy lifestyles and track their successes.

American Diabetes Association Weight Talk®

Offer your employees this phone-based coaching and web-based learning support service to lose weight and prevent prediabetes, type 2 diabetes and diabetes complications.  Weight Talk® provides an evidence-based curriculum, brought to you by the American Diabetes Association and Alere Wellbeing.  Learn more.

Evidenced-Based Program

Complete a survey about your current workplace wellness resources and what outcomes you would like to see as a result of an enhanced wellness program.  Findings will be used to develop evidenced-based programs for your workplace.

Local American Diabetes Association Resources

Work with your local American Diabetes Association to develop an evidenced-based healthy worksite program that meets the needs of your employees.

In addition, you can work with your local American Diabetes Association on team-building activities that take place in your community.  By participating in one of the Association’s signature events, Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, Tour de Cure, or Community Walk to Stop Diabetes, you can reinforce the physical activity components in this program and be recognized in your community as a company who is dedicated to wellness.

To learn more, the first step is to take a quick survey so we can assess your needs and begin to customize a program.
