Organizations have spent years improving, refining or implementing mental health programs as a way to take care of their employees' emotional wellbeing. As employers look back on those initiatives, the impact and measurement of the programs can be a daunting task. There isn't a one-size-fits-all approach.
The key component to measuring and evaluating your mental health strategy is data. Using carefully selected data and deciding organizational priorities allow you to quantify your objectives. This approach helps determine if the solutions put in place are working, which allows you to make adjustments and optimize as time goes on.
