Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Evidence continues to grow in the workplace of waning confidence in job stability and fears about a weakened economy, and of workers’ increased stress levels connected not only to financial concerns but about burnout, anger management, family issues, relationships, parenting, elder care and other “problems of daily living.” Many employers are dealing more than ever with significant issues of turnover, accidents, theft, sabotage, self-medicating employees (including those who use alcohol as well as other drugs), emotional and psychological problems acted out in the workplace, presenteeism, absenteeism, interpersonal and work group conflict, violence, employee lawsuits, disruptive behavior, and race, gender or other bias issues. Real dollars from your bottom line go right through the door because of confrontational work behaviors, dysfunctional work teams and almost continuous crisis management.

Your company has available a remarkable and cost-efficient partner for helping address many of these work issues and individual concerns: an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). An EAP can offer timely problem identification and employee assessment followed by short-term intervention and treatment avenues, even referrals as necessary.

These valuable services are available to individual employees (and their family members) AND to the company itself.
