What is an Employee Assistance Program?
An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a work-based intervention program designed to enhance the emotional, mental and general psychological wellbeing of all employees.
The aim is to provide preventive and proactive interventions for the early detection, identification and/or resolution of both work and personal problems that may adversely affect performance and wellbeing.
These problems and issues may include, but are not limited to,
• substance abuse,
• gambling and other addictions,
• financial problems,
• anxiety disorders,
• psychiatric disorders,
• communication problems, and
• coping with change.
In some circumstances, Assure may refer employees to specialist support services such as legal support or a medical practitioner.
