EAP markets expect integration of outcome measurement and robust evidence of value. The capacity to provide independent, objective and useful evidence of impact maximizes the application of findings into EAP business practice. For vendors, group benefits providers and employers.
While many EAP providers already have an outcome measurement strategy in place, most have not commissioned a comprehensive independent study. For external EAP vendors looking to revamp their outcome measurement strategy and to apply evidence-based knowledge into business practice.
