What is EAP?

What is EAP? Employee Assistance Programs (EAP’s) are employee benefit programs offered by many employers

We believe that the health and well being of a company’s workforce is imperative to the success of the business and by having staff operating at optimal health not only benefits the employee but the employer and the whole work environment.

 

 EAPs are intended to help employees deal with personal problems that might adversely impact their job performance, health, and well-being.

 EAPs generally include short-term counselling and referral services for employees and their household members.

 

How does it work?

 

As part of the EAP the Employer will offer staff members a number of counselling sessions at no expense to the Employee, either via company vouchers or by the EAP Provider invoicing the Company directly for services rendered.

 

 

The Aim of EAP

 

EAP’s aim to ensure that all Australian workers are supported and provided with 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.

Confidentiality

 

Due to strict Confidentially Policies within the Counselling Association all appointments made through an EAP are strictly confidential.

EAP Providers cannot disclose any information to the Employer. This is so any Employee seeking counselling does not feel they are potentially endangering their future within the organization.

Employees have access to our EAP hotline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is no need to wait until they get to work or worry about calling from work during work hours.
