EAPA says

Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) are now widespread in the UK, with nearly half the UK working population having access. The number of programmes on offer has tripled since 2005, according to 2013 research from the UK Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA).

EAPs are becoming a natural choice for employers who want to support employee health and wellbeing.

For individual employers the critical issue when it comes to measuring ROI of EAPs is understanding the measures and evaluating processes used by your provider for your programme. Make sure you set performance targets for your EAP when you buy it.
