Global-Watch’s reference models

1. Global-Watch framework for intervention©

Global-Watch’s framework for intervention© offers the strategy and process to follow for an integrated organizational approach.

 

2. Continuum of overall workplace health

1.
Promotion

Initiatives for promoting overall health must include keeping employees in a state of well-being, while prevention initiatives aim to reduce the negative impacts of risk factors and avoid absences or departures.

2.
Prevention

However, it is also critical to make an effort before problems occur – by preventing absences and promoting being present at work, productive and engaged, where the employee can thrive and contribute to achieving their objectives and to organizational health.

3.
Absence

When it comes to workplace health, organizations often tend to focus only on the time when the employee is absent. This intervention approach is limited if one does not also give priority to preventing departures and absences, as well as promoting workplace health and well-being.

4.
Return to work

Global-Watch supports the fact that it is important to apply prevention strategies when the employee returns to work after being absent due to illness, to avoid a relapse and to maximize the chances of job retention. It is also important to mobilize a multidisciplinary team and follow best practices at this stage.
