What is an Employee Assistance Program?
An Employee Assistance Program or EAP is a free, confidential, worksite-based program. It offers assessments, short-term counseling, referrals, and follow-up services to assist employers and employees.
Personal issues regarding health, marriage, family, finances, substance abuse, legal matters, emotional problems, stress and other issues can affect job performance.
EAP can address work productivity issues and help employees identify and resolve personal concerns.
We seek to partner with individuals, managers, and departments to enhance the opportunity for and access to support, education, and counseling.
We fully believe that each and every person faces struggle and knows pain, we also believe that creating a safe and confidential environment where struggle and pain can be discussed and navigated is invaluable.
Our systematic approach was thoughtfully created to not only serve those who are able and willing to enter into counseling but also to provide outreach and educational services to the hospital as a whole.
The Employee Assistance Program offers eight counseling sessions annually for each employee. It also offers referral services for family members.
We can help you integrate and achieve balance with work and family demands to create a more effective, healthy, productive workplace.
