Why Do Smart Businesses Have Employee Assistance Programs?

Maintaining a healthy, efficient workforce presents an
increasingly complex problem in today's business
environment. Organizations face unprecedented pressures and demands from increasing competition to heavier workloads and longer hours. Leaders in business and labor have recognized the benefits of workplace programs designed to identify and intervene with personal problems that negatively affect performance. Both employer and employee benefit from a progressive approach that keeps your most valuable resource – employees – on the job.

Primary Goal of an EAP

  • help employees resolve personal issues before they affect quality of work
  • anticipate needs early and prevent more serious and costly problems such as illness, absenteeism and accidents
  • decrease costs of worker's compensation, health insurance, lost productivity, low morale and turnover
  • assist managers in identifying and resolving difficult staff problems and provide strategies for performance analysis and improvement

Consider These Alarming Facts

  • Employees with drug and alcohol problems cost U.S. corporations an estimated $120 billion per year.
  • Managers spend up to 20% of their time resolving disputes and dealing with problem employees.
  • Employees who experience serious personal problems have up to 16 times more absenteeism, four times more on and off the job accidents, and account for three and half times more health benefit claims than other workers.
  • More than 80% of Fortune 500 companies have an EAP.
  • A recent 20 year study concluded that unmanaged stress was a more dangerous risk factor for cancer and heart disease than either cigarette smoking or a high-fat diet. Stress is said to be responsible for more than 23 million workdays missed annually.
