Employee Assistant Programs (EAP) are used to assist employees and families with well-being and productivity in the workplace. It develops workplace health through strategic prevention, focusing on an employee’s strengths and resiliency. EAPs promote successful employees and in turn a better overall workplace. These programs offer a powerful support solution during an employee’s most challenging times. Mental health and nervous disorders are among the most difficult to diagnose and, at the same time, are extremely important to treat.

Having EAPs available can make a significant impact on all the employees and business owners. The costs to maintain such employees are mounting each year. This is an option to help reduce these mounting costs. These are not just a good idea, but they are considered a crucial investment in a company’s long-term success. They are employer-paid benefits, so employees need to share. EAPs appeal to each person in the company in a different way, depending on an employee’s lifestyle, stage of life, and occupation within the company.
