Evaluating the Program

Evaluating your programs helps determine successes and value, and employee participation.  It also identifies program shortfalls and opportunities to revise for better outcomes.

Evaluation methods can focus on the implementation activities or process and/or on the outcomes achieved.  Select a method based on the level of detail in the plan and available resources. 

Process Evaluation measures employee and management interest and involvement.  Examples are number of classes, number of newsletters distributed, number of program attendees.

Outcome Evaluation measures program effectiveness within a target population from the outcomes and behavior changes reported.  Pre- and post-test surveys are effective to measure success, which can be from short- and long-term behavior changes.

Examples include employee behavior change after program completion, six months later, etc.
