 Longitudinal Lens on the Evolution of EAP, Work/Life and Wellness Benefit Programs

This summary handout contains all the pieces of the 5 year Research Project out of the University of Michigan's Worker Health Program and Labor Studies Center, Institute for Research on Labor, Employment. and the Economy.    This most recent handout contains the initial Executive Summary, the published article, History of EAP, Work/Life and Wellness and current trends ( 2010), as well as  a copy of the original study out of Boston University in 1993  along with a list of the original participating companies.

The current study (2010), Longitudinal Lens on the Evolution of EAP, Work/Life and Wellness, focuses on the history and changes in the Service Delivery Models of these three programs over the last 20 years.  Two fascinating findings revolve around the role of Unions in this area, as well as the question whether ROI’s and Cost Benefit Analysis are actually needed in today’s market place to substantiate the need for these services.  Any questions or comments about this study should be directed to Patricia Herlihy at p_herlihy@brownbear.us
