Ongoing evaluation gives important information that you can use to fine tune diabetes related programming to suit your employees’ needs. The size of your workforce, as well as the gender, ages, and ethnicities of employees, will influence the diabetes prevention and management information you present and the activities and services your program offers. As you achieve your goals and set new ones, you should modify program elements to keep them responsive to employee needs.
