Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine the literature assessing the return-on-investment (ROI) of healthy workplace programs.

Design/methodology/approach

Used a narrative review to summarize and evaluate findings.

Findings

Although substantial ROI data now exist, methodological and logical weaknesses limit the conclusions that can be drawn.

Practical implications

A strategy for monetizing the benefits of healthy workplaces that draws on both human resource accounting and strategic human resource management is described.

Social implications

The promotion of healthy workplaces is an important goal in its own right. To the extent that ROI estimates are important in advancing this goal, these estimates should be based on clear logic and strong methodology.

Originality/value

The paper suggests the need for stronger research designs but also note the difficulties in monetizing outcomes of the healthy workplace.
