What is EAP?

EAP stands for (Employment Assistance Program) and it is an employee wellness benefit offered to a company’s employees and families. The EAP offers help with the resolution of problems that are or may be affecting the employees work. These problems, however, do not have to be caused by workplace issues. The EAP can provide personalized consultation, shortterm counseling, referral and follow-up services to enhance the personal and professional wellbeing of your employees. We also offer training and management consultation for improved workplace performance Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) are designed to provide support for employees that are navigating life issues that may impact their ability to come to work and be productive in the workplace. The primary goal of an EAP is to ensure the mental health of employees so that they can consistently contribute to the growth of the company. ... The aim of an EAP is to reduce the amount of time employees take away from work and to ensure that when they return, they do so with renewed strength and optimal mental health.

Who would use the program?

All members of the workforce and their immediate family members may use the program whenever they are experiencing personal and/or work-related difficulties. Supervisors and managers may also seek the guidance of a Consultant to determine the appropriateness of referring employees who might be experiencing work performance and conduct changes due to personal issues, as well as to discuss onsite workgroup support or training options.
