Employee Assistance Program

The Need

Employers realize that a wide range of personal problems can affect an employee's job performance. In some instance, the employee will overcome such personal problems independently, and the effect on job performance will be negligible. Some employees, however, acting alone with no professional help, will not realize a lasting, positive resolution to the problems. The employee's problems, therefore, linger and work performance suffers.

No one is immune to personal problems. Problems are unfortunate facts of life experienced by everyone, everywhere. Quite often some personal problems adversely affect employees' performance at work, affecting productivity and straining their relationships with coworkers.

The most common personal problems affecting the workplace include:

Marital Problems

Substance Abuse

Stress

Financial Difficulties

Physical Problems

Legal Problems

Parenting Issues

Caring for Elderly Parents

 


The Issues

Human Resources personnel are often confronted with issues that require expert assistance.

They include:

Violence in the Workplace

DOT, NRC and other Federal and State Regulatory Requirements

Dysfunctional Working Groups

Providing Confidential Access to Professional Help

 


The Solution

Counselors Link offers a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program (EAP).  The Counselors Link E.A.P. is designed to improve the personal and professional lives of the employees and family members of client companies.  The program includes an appropriate On-line Counselor with Counselors Link or the Counselor to make an appropriate referral to our outside network of professionals.  Our Professionals will identifies problems at the earliest possible stage, motivates the member to seek help, and provides the comprehensive assistance necessary to solve the problems.

The Counselors Link E.A.P. provides a Toll-Free Phone number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for access to a network of licensed/Certified professional counselors in a multitude of disciplines.  The E.A.P. can be voluntary or a "gatekeeper" to mental health benefits.  It is a completely confidential program that provides professional assistance in areas such as:

Additional Services

The Counselors Link E.A.P. also offers other services to the employer such as:

Critical Incident Debriefing – C.I.D. places a professional at the employer's site to deal with emotional issues after a critical event. C.I.D. has responded to issues such as loss of life at the workplace, robberies, earthquakes, downsizing and other emotionally traumatic events.
