The following are the hypotheses of the study:

  1. There will be a significant difference in the pre and post intervention practices of health promoting lifestyle behaviours (behaviour specific cognition and affect) of NOUN staff
  2. There will be significant association between the health promoting lifestyle behaviours (behavioural outcome) and health status of NOUN staff
  3. There will be a significant difference in the pre-and post-intervention health promoting lifestyle behaviours (behavioural outcome) of staff of NOUN
  4. There will be a significant difference in the pre-and post-intervention health status measure (specific health measurement indicators) of staff of NOUN
