Employee Assistance Programs
Why consider an Employee Assistance Program?
Our trained EAP counselors can help your employee or his/her family members assess their situation, discuss options for addressing the concern, and assist with referral for additional services if needed.
An EAP provides helpful resources before personal problems negatively affect job performance.
Research demonstrates that EAPs slow the rise in employee health care costs. By assisting employees through effective interventions before their problems spiral out of control, the EAP will reduce the likelihood of more costly interventions and loss of productivity. EAP services for an entire year may be purchased for less than the cost of three hours of wages for the average employee.
Supervisors and managers like EAP because it gives them additional tools for addressing poor job performance. EAP can help managers sort out difficult situations and provide clinical assessment for issues such as alcohol/drug abuse and workplace violence.
