When people hear the term ’employee benefits’ most tend to associate it with the old traditional benefits–health, dental and vision. But the evolving workforce and need for increased productivity has led a large number of employers to turn to the employee assistance program (EAP) benefit.
The EAP benefit is an easy-to-use, confidential, results-oriented service with resources designed to help employees and family members better cope with the everyday demands of today’s fast-paced lifestyles. The EAP includes mental and emotional counseling services for employees and their family members, legal counseling and assistance, financial counseling, and many other assistance services to help employees handle their issues outside of the office so they can stay focused and productive while at work.
Dr. Ann Clark, CEO and Founder of Top-Ten EAP, ACI Specialty Benefits, has been a pioneer of the EAP for nearly 30 years.
“At its root, the EAP is designed to help people. Whether that is helping them overcome substance abuse issues, financial woes or marital problems, the EAP helps people get their lives on track.”
Employers have realized that having a workforce of happy, healthy bodies and minds is in their best interest. The increased productivity resulting from the EAP, as well as the increased retention caused by having such a helpful benefit has turned the EAP into one of the most attractive benefit options for employers putting together an employee benefits package.
