Employee assistance programmes (EAP) are employee benefit programmes offered by many leading employers. EAPs help employees deal with personal problems that might adversely impact their work performance and health and wellbeing. EAPs generally include assessments, short-term counselling and referral services for employees and their immediate family.

Our partner company, Health Assured, offers an EAP that gives your employees independent and, most importantly, confidential advice about all aspects of their work and personal life. We help to resolve issues before they affect work and increase resilience to stress. By enabling your staff to weather personal and professional challenges more easily, they improve their attendance and productivity at work.
