MetadataShow full item record
For many years business has been searching for ways to make companies more profitable. Some programs that many businesses have implemented in order to increase profits are Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) and Health Promotion Programs (HPPs). Employee Assistance Programs offer a wide range of services including marriage counseling, parent education classes, and legal advice. Health Promotion Programs offer wellness services and focus on preventative measures to bring health costs down. A meta-analysis will be conducted to determine if a cost offset effect occurs due to the utilization of these programs. After collecting 20 articles for review the present study has found that a general reading of the studies seem to suggest a common, positive cost benefit for EAPs/HPPs.
