A new tool for estimating return of investment and quality of WHP programs
INSHT, the Spanish contact office of ENWHP, has just launched a tool for estimating the economic return of investment of Workplace Health Promotion Programmes. The tool provides an overview of the quality of WHP programmes which is used to modulate the results: more quality more return. This tool, like other existing ones, has some limitations that derive from estimation and assumptions.
