Recent studies show what all of us in HR have known for years—that helping employees handle their personal stress decreases absenteeism, boosts productivity, and increases employee engagement.
Because managers and HR teams are generally not trained to provide counseling or therapy to employees, an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers a way to help employees deal with those life and work issues that fall outside the expertise of their company’s internal resources.
This unique employee benefit supports employees with problems that impact their job performance, health, mental state, and emotional well- being. According to the Department of Labor, EAPs most frequently assist employees dealing with alcoholism, drug abuse, marital difficulties, financial stress, emotional problems, and legal issues.
At Archbright, we partner with KEPRO to provide all members the opportunity to offer the support of an EAP to their workforce at a discounted price. KEPRO’s EAP consultants take a comprehensive approach to identify those issues impacting the employee and assist them in developing meaningful solutions to impact their well-being, performance, and effectiveness.
