Work-Life Balance: Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Given the unavoidable stress of life, most people face times when they need assistance. EAPs provide employees access to counseling and other services. Without the aid of EAP counselors, the effects of stress can spiral out of control. Employee assistance programs give individuals the opportunity to seek help and learn the skills necessary to improve their work-life balance. 

Typical EAP Topics:
  • Personal crisis
  • Work stress
  • Finances
  • Substances 
EAPs are useful investments because they prevent turnover and reduce absences as they teach strategies for work-life balance.

Until next time...
