EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
An employee assistance program (EAP) supports employees with work-related problems as well as personal problems that may impact on their job performance, health & mental well-being. An EAP offers employer funded confidential counselling for employees & their family members as well as consultative support for managers & supervisors to address employee & organizational challenges & needs.
Employee Assistance Programs were first formed in the late 1930s to dealt with occupational alcoholism. Businesses quickly realized the effectiveness of an EAP through the rehabilitation of their workers & the rise of productivity. Soon Employee Assistance Programs expanded to include services to deal with marital, emotional, financial, legal & drug abuse problems. In more recent years services provided by EAPs have moved to include trauma, stress & depression as well as general wellbeing.
Studies indicate that offering Employee Assistance Programs may result in various benefits for employers, including reduced turnover & absenteeism as well as higher employee productivity & that the provision of EAP services need to be immediate.
An employer who provides an effective EAP can help both themselves & their employees by lowering risk & liability, improving employee satisfaction & especially decreasing the stress business owners experience when managing numerous responsibilities.
