The first employee assistance programs (EAPs) were established in response to the growing problem of alcoholism among white-collar workers. Eventually, however, the programs evolved into what they’re known for today—providing confidential support to employees with mental, financial, childcare, substance abuse, and other personal problems.
If an EAP isn’t part of your benefits portfolio, there are good reasons to reconsider that decision. An EAP doesn’t just help your employees, it also helps you with sticky employees relations issues that have the potential to go terribly wrong if handled poorly.
What an EAP can do for you?
When choosing an EAP, be sure your company is assigned a designated representative who is no more than a phone call or email away when you need advice. That individual can talk you through complicated situations that would otherwise confound even the most competent HR, professional or manager.
