As you are no doubt aware, offering workplace health interventions is recognized as an effective strategy to reduce chronic disease progression, absenteeism, and healthcare costs as well as improve population health. In recent years, the aging of the workforce has posed a significant challenge worldwide, as it may increase the burden of chronic diseases and have negative implications on workplace productivity. Research and interventions are making a difference in some countries, but far too many older people are working in jobs designed for younger ones. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, “Workplace Health Promotion 2018”, offers an opportunity to publish high-quality multi-disciplinary workplace health promotion research. We are particularly interested in research related to preventing the leading causes of chronic diseases (e.g., obesity, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, common mental disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, sleep disorders), increasing work ability or quality of working life, or enhancing positive health (work engagement, job satisfaction, self-esteem). We would welcome papers related to evidence of successful intervention strategies (both policy and in practice, including instructional education/counselling, workplace environmental change, physical activity, use of technology, and incentives), as well as indicators/surveillance initiatives. All manuscripts will be peer reviewed by experts in the field, and would be due in March 2018. The Guest Editor of this Special Issue is Nicola Magnavita of the same university.
