WHAT IS AN EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMME?
Our Employee Assistance Programme is a valuable scheme that is designed to give employees support when they need it most and it helps employers to reduce sickness and absenteeism while improving employee performance.
WHY SHOULD I PROVIDE AN EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMME TO MY EMPLOYEES?
An EAP can help increase employee efficiency, morale and productivity while helping employers meet their Duty of Care obligations.
By offering an EAP, employees can seek help during the early stages of a problem, which can prevent it from turning into something more serious and potentially impacting on the workplace.
HOW DOES AN EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMME WORK?
The programme provides employees with a telephone counselling service and an online help system to assist staff with a wide range of issues. The qualified and experienced practitioners are trained to deal with issues such as stress, relationship difficulties, bereavement, anxiety, family worries, alcohol/drug abuse, employment problems and financial concerns.
Through an Employee Assistance Programme, employees will have access to confidential, caring support, encouraging them to talk about any problems that may be putting them under strain. We can also offer structured counselling plans including telephonic and face to face sessions.
