Describe the process evaluation of the behavioral intervention group of a multicomponent workplace intervention, BearStand, to reduce employees’ sitting time using sit-stand workstations and behavioral strategies.
Process evaluation metrics: dose delivered, dose-received exposure, dose-received satisfaction, and context were collected using an online survey. Participants included employees of a US university.
Overall, 38 of 52 participants completed the process evaluation. The majority were satisfied (53%) with the intervention. Participants’ interactions with intervention materials decreased over time (73.7%, week 1, to 52.6%, week 13), and 42% and 33% of participants used suggested videos and apps, respectively. Participants found goal setting and self-regulation strategies to be the most helpful and identified workplace-related contextual barriers that impacted intervention engagement.
Future interventions should incorporate more engaging materials for participants, reduce contextual barriers, and facilitate use of apps and videos.
