Don’t renew your EAP. Reinvent your care.
There is a better way.
Three reasons why you should reconsider employee assistance programs
People aren’t getting the help they need.
EAP engagement is too low. Over a third of people are suffering in silence with multiple issues at play, and over time, their issues compound to breaking point.
There are barriers to getting support.
Not only do your people need to recognise when they need help, they need to overcome the stigmas of help-seeking and then know where to get help.
Earlier intervention makes a difference.
Too many support mechanisms are reactive rather than proactive. This means that intervention only occurs when your employees are at crisis point.
A new approach to employee wellbeing
Every person is unique and not everyone needs a psychologist.
Organisations should consider an approach that takes a holistic view of employee wellbeing, focusing not only on employee mental health, but personal and workplace safety and - most importantly - medical assistance.
