Employee Assistance Programs

In today's challenging economy, employers are constantly struggling to keep their workplaces safe and healthy and their employees productive in order to sustain themselves financially and consistently increase revenues. Everyone has their share of personal issues to deal with and almost always, these problems follow workers to work, thus the high incidence in the last few years of rates of presenteeism and stress-related health issues. Taking care of an elderly parent, childcare, legal and financial concerns, working way beyond your planned retirement age, are all realities in today's busy world. Meanwhile, the workplace has gotten slimmer and employees are under enormous pressure to perform, causing them more work stress than ever before. Employers strive to retain their valued workers by offering them the benefits they need both at work and at home to maintain their health and wellbeing.

EAPs have evolved over the last 50 years to become one of the most important prescriptions for helping employees take care of themselves and their families thus improving productivity and the overall health of an organization. EAPs not only provide a broad scope of services that can be used by everyone in the employee's household every day, they also provide the tools that managers need to identify and assist workers whose personal problems have impacted their performance. Managers can consult with experts and get the support they need and also get help with addressing workplace crisis events, like the death of an employee, during these trying times. This OnDemand Webinar will provide you with information you need to keep your organization successful and your employees strong, healthy and productive.
