This paper investigates the average effects of firm-provided workplace health promotion measures on labour market outcomes of the firms’ employees. Exploiting linked employer–employee panel data that consist of rich survey-based and administrative information on firms, workers and regions, we apply a flexible propensity score matching approach that controls for selection on observables and time-constant unobserved factors. While the effects of analysing sickness absenteeism appear to be rather limited, our results suggest that health circles/courses increase tenure and job stability across various age groups. A key finding is that health circles/courses strengthen the labour force attachment of elderly employees (51–60), implying potential cost savings for public transfer schemes such as unemployment insurance or early retirement schemes.
