Reviewing the effectiveness of Employee Assistance Programmes

Client: EAPA

Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) are among the most commonly used wellbeing interventions in the UK. Given the large potential ‘reach’ of this kind of intervention, and the possible impact on employee wellbeing, The Work Foundation is conducting research to understand the ‘state of the market’ for the use and effectiveness of EAPs in the UK.

The first stage of work surveys HR Managers about their organisational use of EAPs, and also includes in-depth interviews to explore themes regarding EAPs more thoroughly.  Through this stage we are also surveying the providers of EAPs.  Building upon the data gathered, Stage 2 will seek to address some assumptions regarding the Return-on-Investment of EAPs in the workplace.
