Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP)

Give employees the support structure they need and that take the strain out of managing your business

Why does my business need to offer an Employee Assistance Program?

  • Within any workplace environment employees will have problems or issues they are dealing with.
  • Different people cope and manage these issues in different ways and occasionally these will be bought to your attention, probably impacting on company time and resources.
  • The effect of these issues could result in short or long term absence or a decline in workplace performance.

How does EAP benefit my business?

  • A tangible employee benefit promoting staff health & well-being
  • Authoritative source of advice for employees & managers in the organisation
  • Litigation risk management for employers facing stress related employee claims
  • Mediation and a reduction in employee tribunals
  • Confidential counselling and advice for staff. This means they are free to discuss and try to resolve issues they might otherwise have been wary of mentioning at work for fear of it impacting on their position within the organisation
