Abstract [en]

Methods to assess economic effects related to the work environment at companies and organizations are summarized and evaluated. Information was found in the open literature and by discussions with developers, researchers and end-users. The results show that several methods exist and an overview is presented here. Effects of uncertainties in the input data and the underlying assumptions are discussed. It is concluded that the application of the methods available would be stimulated by improved guidelines and by making a collection of case studies available in the public domain. Recommendations for future methodology development work are also given.
