EAP calculator delivers ROI figures for a future of benchmarking
Earlier this week, as a partner of the Mad World Summit, EAPA was pleased to write an article for the summit website explaining why it has funded the Institute of Employment Studies (IES) to design and develop an EAP calculator.
The article explains how buy-in for employee wellbeing initiatives has always been hampered by a lack of hard data. Making a case for investment into mental health benefits has meant scratching around for impact on absence rates or relying on intangibles like the value for engagement and employer branding. It had become clear, following the first phase of EAPA UK funded research with The Work Foundation, that there was an urgent need for evidence and attention to real-life figures, particularly when the cost of poor mental health among employees is costing employers between £33 and £42m (Thrive at Work report). To help fill this critical gap, EAPA UK stepped in, funding the Institute of Employment Studies (IES) to design and develop an EAP calculator.
