ABSTRACT
The article presents tips for employers on how to gauge the success of their employee assistance programs (EAP). It says employers should focus on whether the EAP is achieving the objectives set when it was started. Employee assistance expert Jodi Jacobson Frey says that investing time and money on monitoring EAPs can offer a huge return on investment. According to benefits expert Kim Jinnett, employers should use employee performance measures, such as absenteeism, to measure EAP success.
