Employee Assistance Programs
An EAP (Employee Assistance Program) is a worksite-based program designed to assist organizations in addressing productivity issues and providing assistance to client-employees in identifying and resolving personal concerns that may affect job performance. By assuming the burden of employees' personal problems, EAPs free supervisors and administrators to pursue organizational interests. EAPs provide workplace leaders with coaching, training, and a win-win process to deal with difficult or problem employees.
EAP services encourage employees and their family members to seek and accept appropriate help for a wide range of human problems:
- Alcohol and other drug abuse
- Emotional and mental disorders
- Family and marital distress
- Financial troubles
- Legal entanglements
- Poor physical health
- Vocational and situational stress
- Any other personal problems
The Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA) is the largest and most respected membership association for the EAP profession. With chapters in over 40 countries, EAPA is the world’s most reputable source of current information, resources and support for and about employee assistance programs and services.
