Evaluating Programs

Knowing what works and doesn’t work is important for developing a Total Worker Health program that is right for you. Employers describe information they have used to evaluate their programs before, during and after implementation to maximize the benefits and minimize the costs.

We took a look at the data and tried to figure out where our risk areas were, and what we wanted to do about it.

—Kristin Marion, Client Advisor, Geonetric.

We are measuring our success. We find it really important that we need to be able to produce results and be able to track our successes and challenges. It is really important for being able to present results to management.

—Lori Hoffman, Employee Training & Communications Specialist, Cedar Falls Utilities
