employee services, return on investment, trend analysis, social auditing, and program outcomes


The profession of employee services was an outgrowth of an early recreation movement at the turn of the 20th century. This does not suggest that there were not programs before this date. It only indicates that the importance was recognized at this point in time.

It flourished through a professional organization that began in the 1940's and eventually saw its demise in the mid-2000. This does not suggest that this movement is not alive today. It only implies that the problems were organizational.

This manuscript is a reflection on past endeavors of the employee service and considerations of its present and future status. The primary focus will be upon efforts related to programs and trends that will reflect current and future populations. The emphasis is upon the sustainability of the employee service movement and how to ensure its future. The development of the manuscript will be historical and looking at the basic theories and constructs and how these principles can be applied now and in the future.
