TOP 3 REASONS WHY YOUR ORGANIZATION NEEDS our EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

#1 – Improved Productivity and Reduced Costs

Employee Assistance Programs are designed to improve the well being and productivity of your employees.  When an employee is dealing with unresolved grief, relationship discord, or substance abuse the result is often a drop in productivity at work and increased absence, which costs the company money.  EAP’s provide mental health counseling and a variety of resources designed to problem solve and reduce the impact that social, psychological, or physical problems can have on a employee’s home and work life.

#2 – Reduced Turnover and Improved Morale

Prematurely terminating a previously dependable and productive employee should be a last resort.  It is expensive in both time and money to hire and train new employees.  A wise employer protects their investment by offering intervention and support before a problem causes serious difficulty at work.

#3 – Third Party Assistance

Being able to safely turn to someone outside the workplace can make the difference between success and failure.  EAP workers and providers are committed to confidentiality and to partnering with our members to find solutions to their problems.
