Managerial style and health promotion programs.
Organizational correlates of worksite health promotion programs were isolated and interpreted within a diffusion of innovation framework.
A sample of managers from California (U.S.A.) 500 organisations were interviewed via telephone on their corporate management styles and health care strategies.
Organisational management style was found to be related to prevalence of health promotion programs and future plans for health promotion programs.
Specifically, this study found that organisations with democratic management styles are more likely to plan, adopt, and/or implement worksite health promotion programs when compared to organizations with authoritarian management styles.
