Employers have a vested interest in the ability of employees to work at or close to their full potential. Employee Assistance Program's (EAPs) are valuable resources that can help employees cope with issues affecting their ability to reach that potential. Marital and family problems, conflicts among co-workers and managers, depression, substance abuse, work-related stress, legal and financial issues, and child and elder care needs are just some of the concerns affecting employees' well-being. These distractions may hurt productivity and drive up costs for businesses. The health care system cannot always handle these types of issues, especially those—such as needs for financial counseling or elder care help—that are not health related.
EAPs are cost-effective tools to mitigate these risks. EAPs can help employers reduce absenteeism, workers' compensation claims, health care costs, accidents and grievances. In addition, they can address safety and security issues, improve employee productivity and engagement, and reduce costs related to employee turnover.
