an expansion of their current worksite health promotion programs,
staff members at a large West Coast nutritional supplement distributor
firm posed the following questions:
- How do we
really know if our fitness center is paying off?
- When will
the medical self-care program break even?
- Which of
our two smoking cessation programs is the most cost-effective?
- What is the
correlation between wellness points and medical care costs?
thereafter, the firm called us for insights on how staff could begin
to answer some of these questions. Staff members gave us a review
of current programs as well as a prioritized listing of their opinions
and preferences for program expansion. We provided staff members
with a complimentary copy of our Econometrics Booklet to preview
before the next meeting. At that time, we jointly established a
timeframe with measurable goals for (a) measuring each program's
current impact, (b) customized evaluation strategies, and (c) evaluation
options to consider using the expanded program.
