Título Why employers spend money on employee health: Interviews with occupational health and safety professionals from British industry
Información bibliográfica Feb. 2009, Vol.47, No.2, p.163-169. 31 ref.
Resumen Interviews with 18 occupational health and safety professionals at major organizations in the United Kingdom were conducted to explore their motivations, behaviours and information needs about employee health investment. Legal compliance and ethics were found to be important drivers for employee health spending. This spending was generally calculated using data on cost of illness (mostly expressed via sickness absence), direct health expenditure per employee and insurance premiums. Generally, costs were more quantifiable than benefits. Implications of these findings are discussed.
