Have you considered introducing an EAP programme?

As a business owner you have a responsibility to look after your employee’s wellbeing, as well as their physical and mental health. You can do this by providing a confidential service, allowing them to get support with their issues in confidence.

An Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is an employee benefit that is intended to help your employees deal with personal problems that may be affecting their work performance.

An EAP service works by allowing employees confidential access to a range of services to support them.
Whilst employers can pay for the programme, they strictly receive no information to what issue is being supported.

An EAP service can help improve your employee’s mental wellbeing, as well as discussing a decrease in their mental health.

The service can provide support to your employees who are suffering from financial difficulties. This can include how to deal with debts and follow a budget. This support can be vital if your employees are dealing with financial issues.

An EAP service doesn’t just provide advice on work-related issues, the programme supports your employees with legal advice on a range of issues.

An EAP service will advise on addictions, whether that be drugs, gambling, or alcohol.

There are many issues that can cause a dip in work performance. This can be down to work life changes which can lead to an increase in stress or employee burnout.

Grief is one of the most difficult things an employee can go through, with them potentially requiring a long
period of time off work.

There are many benefits that come with providing an employee assistance programme to your employees, please speak to us if you would like to consider introducing this in your business.
