dc.description.abstract Organizations are using digital tools to support workplace health promotion (WHP) initiatives. This study investigates the effects of a mobile health (mHealth) application on employee behaviour and wellness. This exploratory, empirical case study was conducted as part of an established workplace health initiative in the Health Service Executive (HSE) in Ireland, April 2018. User data on exercise including daily activity in the form of steps taken, mood, total daily exercise, and other variables were captured as part of the ‘Steps to Health Challenge’. Phase 1 of the study involved the collection of user data from 70 active app users and a survey was conducted. The majority of participants found that the mHealth app motivated them to sustain, and in some cases increase, their daily steps. Phase 2 involved interviews. Following qualitative data analysis, we found that the app positively affected employee behaviour; specific features were highlighted as especially influential. en
