The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability and validity of the updated 2019 CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard (CDC ScoreCard), which includes four new modules.
We pilot tested the updated instrument at 93 worksites, examining question response concurrence between two representatives from each worksite. We conducted cognitive interviews and site visits to evaluate face validity, and refined the instrument for public distribution.
The mean question concurrence rate was 73.4%. Respondents reported the tool to be useful for assessing current workplace
programs and planning future initiatives. On average, 43% of possible interventions included in the CDC ScoreCard were in place at the pilot sites.
The updated CDC ScoreCard is a valid and reliable tool for assessing worksite health promotion
policies, educational and lifestyle counseling programs, environmental supports, and health benefits.
