EAPA AGM 2018
EAPA’s 2018 AGM took place at the Health & Wellbeing @ Work conference at the NEC in Birmingham on Tuesday 6 March at 5.15pm. This year’s meeting was particularly significant as it saw the launch of the UK’s first independently developed and researched Return on Investment calculator which has now been made available for employers and the EAP industry to use. The launch of the EAP ROI calculator marked the completion of an industry-funded research project, commissioned by EAPA and carried out by the Institute of Employment Studies (IES), over the last two years. Professor Stephen Bevan, who has led the development of the calculator at the IES, was the guest speaker at the AGM, demonstrating how the new EAP ROI tool works and explaining the calculations that lie behind it.
“This year’s AGM was a great opportunity for our members to get a first look at the calculator before it went live on the EAPA website as well as ask questions and discuss where we go next in terms of research or other projects to support the industry,” said EAPA Chair, Neil Mountford.
