Every employer knows an employee's significant personal problems may become significant personnel problems in the workplace. In order for any company to remain competitive in the marketplace, your employees must perform at their best. It's estimated at any given time, up to 20 percent of your employees may have problems that are affecting their job performance. When an employee has an unresolved problem, the effects on performance may include absenteeism, accidents (both on and off the job), conflicts with coworkers and customers and decreased work quality and quantity.
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides initial assessment and referral services at no cost to employees and their family members covering a wide variety of work/life problems in areas, such as marital, legal, financial, emotional, stress, substance abuse, grief and loss, work pressures, parent/child conflicts and communication. When you offer the EAP to a troubled employee, there's an increased opportunity for personal success as well as increased productivity for the employee and for your department.
