CIPD Manchester event in collaboration with the British Psychological Society & the Society of Occupational Medicine
Venue: Eversheds Sutherland LLP, Eversheds House, 70 Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester M1 5ES
The evidence base for psychological well-being (PWB) in organisations in four different areas (S1)
1. the impact of PWB on individual health;
2. the impact of PWB on individual and organisational outcomes;
3. the factors that influence PWB in organisational settings;
4. the types of interventions and their effectiveness.
Are Workplace Well-being Interventions Cost-Effective? (S2)
There is increasing interest in interventions in the workplace which can raise employee well-being. This session will cover methods for comparing the well-being benefits of such interventions with their costs, and hence for deciding whether or not an intervention is justified.
The session will briefly review existing methods of cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis and then present a new method for evaluating cost-effectiveness with subjective well-being as the outcome. It will demonstrate a new Excel-based cost-effectiveness tool, using a worked example based on a published study of a workplace intervention. The session will conclude with a discussion of the requirements for building cost-effectiveness into future intervention studies and trials.
