Abstract BackgroundWe reviewed evidence for wellness and disease prevention interventions in the workplace setting since 2007. Reputable scientific studies located in the workplace setting have quadrupled in the past decade; physical activity is very prominent in this evolution of evidence. Our conceptual models for the setting need to take account of the growth in knowledge. We introduce a third generation conceptual model to guide future intervention and research.MethodsWe conducted a rapid systematic review under the Evidence CheckTM methodology developed by the Sax Institute, Australia. Electronic databases were searched for peer-review and grey literature from 2007. PRISMA reporting protocols were observed.Four main research questions addressed (1) Evidence for effectiveness of interventions;(2) Essential design elements of effective interventions;(3) Implementation success factors (navigating barriers and facilitators); and(4) The contribution of organisational and systems approachesResultsWe will provide (a) main findings for the four main research questions; (b) analysis of the evolution of knowledge in this setting; (c) a new model - Workplace Wellness 3.0 which brings together the latest evidence, principles and systems approaches; and (d) discussion of the implications and directions for physical activity interventions and research in this setting.ConclusionIn its updated 'best buys' advice, The World Health Organisation recommends multi-component physical activity programmes in the workplace setting. We offer an evidence review and new conceptual model which can guide implementation and research as this recommendation is put into practice. External funding details Initial research was funded by the NSW Government and commissioned through the Sax Institute.
