How we measure outcomes – The CORE Outcome Measure  & Workplace Outcome Suite (WOS)

The workplace outcome Suite (WOS) is endorsed by the Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA) as the gold standard metric to demonstrate the effectiveness of EAP’s in quantifiable business terms and estimate return on investment (ROI).

What we measure

The WOS - 5 is a psychometrically robust “super short” five item self-report questionnaire which measures

  • Absenteeism - the number of hours absent because of  personal problems which take the employee away from work
  • Presentism - not absent per se but decreased productivity and functioning because the employee is pre-occupied by unresolved personal problems.
  • Work engagement  -the extent to which the employee is committed to and passionate about their job
  • Life satisfaction -  general sense of wellbeing
  • Workplace distress the extent to which the employee is anxious or distressed at work

 

Our outcomes
