Employee assistance programs (EAPs) are one way companies try to support the well-being of team members. Good EAPs can contribute to employees’ productivity, personal wellness, and organizational success. This is why organisations often fund these schemes.
So as an employer supporting your staff via a good EAP provider is likely to bring significant benefits such as reducing burnout, helping with staff dissatisfaction and simply supporting staff to have better levels of wellbeing.
As an employee you have someone confidential to discuss your issues with – this is a confidential service – absolutely no information is passed on to the employer except a small amount of information to be able to bill the organisation for payment. You, and sometimes your family, are essentially able to access a psychology / therapy / counselling service as part of your employment conditions. The organisation will usually fund three sessions with no questions asked. They will often fund three further sessions with agreement and may fund further sessions but this depends on the organisation. If you want to access this service then please talk to your manage or HR department.
