Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) are one way to ensure a happier and healthier workforce within a company; by providing an employer-sponsored advisory service that is confidential, voluntary, and provides counseling and referral services to employees and their family members.

Some of the difficulties covered by an EAP are: 

  • Family difficulties;
  • Work-related difficulties;
  • Personal problems;
  • Dependency problems;
  • Legal problems;
  • Financial problems;
  • Elder care;
  • Child care.

Using EAPs can improve employee health and productivity, all the while helping to keep benefits expenditures under control.
