Employee Assistance Programs
Providing employees access to professional counseling
There are few factors that will impact productivity and retention more than the psychological and emotional health of your people. That is why Stevenson & Hunt recommends that you include an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) as part of your employee benefit package. Employee Assistance Programs are designed to:
- Reduce absenteeism, accidents, healthcare and disability claims costs
- Help increase morale and productivity of your employees
- Provide your employees with EAP service, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
An EAP provides employees and their families with access to professional counseling for personal or family difficulties, substance abuse issues, gambling problems or job-related concerns.
Employee access to EAP is on a completely confidential basis, but management can receive feedback about what kinds of issues are being discussed, allowing you to flag possible trouble spots that are causing anxiety in your employees.
