Across the US and Europe, there's growing demand for tools that objectively and reliably demonstrate the value and efficacy of corporate mental health services.
Bloomington, IL (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
Chestnut Global Partners (CGP), a provider of culturally-aware employee assistance and wellness programs to companies worldwide, today announced that its Workplace Outcome Suite (WOS) will be included in CORE Net, a platform developed in the UK by CORE IMS Ltd. that offers validated and reliable measurement tools for mental health service providers. The Workplace Outcomes Suite (WOS) is now in use by over 400 organizations, enabling them to scientifically measure the workplace effects of their employee assistance (EAP) and Health Coaching programs with respect to their impact on absenteeism, presenteeism, work engagement, life satisfaction and workplace distress.
CORE Net is an innovative, secure and simple to use, web based system. CORE Net makes it easy to collect client reported outcome measures and to use this client information to manage therapeutic outcomes. There is a choice of over 30 high quality, highly regarded measures available, now including the WOS-25 and WOS-5 which will help to provide a robust evidence base for workplace sector services. CORE Net is currently used by over 5,000 therapists in the UK and Europe. By adding the WOS to CORE Net, these 5,000 plus therapists can broaden beyond the measurement of clinical outcomes and now include outcomes related to the workplace.
"Across the US and Europe, there's growing demand for tools that objectively and reliably demonstrate the value and efficacy of corporate mental health services," said Richard Lennox, Ph.D., Vice President of Commercial Science with Chestnut Global Partners. "CORE Net and the WOS enable providers to validate their programs and show the real impact their services have on the workforce."
The WOS stands apart from other outcome measures as it is psychometrically tested, validated, workplace-focused, easy to administer, and free. The WOS brings EAP in line with the data-driven approaches that are changing the way organizations conduct all phases of their business—from product design to customer service, to marketing and talent acquisition. This approach translates improved productivity into quantifiable results, makes the business case for if or when investing in EAP and Health/Wellness Coaching makes sense.
