Employee Assistance Plans (EAP) help employees and their families deal with their personal issues that might have a negative impact on health, wellness and work performance. These programs are created to specifically to support individuals while they work overcome their personal issues.
While most employee assistance programs offer a large range of services and resources, they often provide referrals to other professionals who can offer help in particular areas. Employees are provided with confidential access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Having an EAP available on employee benefit plans helps reduce absenteeism, stress and poor emotional health. They also work to reduce healthcare benefit costs such as drugs while increasing morale and productivity.
