Measuring returns on EAP investment – how can you get involved?

In an article on HR, UK EAPA’s Andrew Kinder and Zofia Bajorek from Lancaster University’s The Work Foundation outline the challenge of measuring the impact of EAPs.

They discuss the research partnership that’s underway between UK EAPA and The Work Foundation which will address many of the questions raised by those commissioning and purchasing EAPs and will attempt to answer the elusive question of what the return on investment is.

EAP providers, as well as HR professionals, can get involved in the study by completing a short survey that asks about your experience of EAPs.

The results will be published later this year – check back for updates!
