What is the Employee Assistance Program (EAP)?
Everyone experiences stress and personal problems from time to time, but sometimes the challenges we face in life or at work can become overwhelming and extremely stressful. Individuals who are distracted by personal problems cannot do their best on or off the job. Work life as well as family life can suffer. By providing an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), an employer can encourage their employee and their families to seek help, at no cost, when a problem first appears and can be most easily resolved.
Client privacy is a critical part of the EAP's success.
United Psychological & Educational Group counselors protect the information obtained from the client as part of their professional relationship.
EAP Supervisor and Human Resources Training
We provide HR managers and supervisors training on all aspect of EAP. This includes:
- Understand the purpose of EAP.
- Make you more aware and comfortable with the process of constructively confronting a troubled employee.
- Help you identify situations where a referral is appropriate and teaching you ways on how to professionally approach the situation.
- We will demonstrate the difference between a formal referral to the EAP, where the employee signs an authorization for the psychologist to communicate with the manager and/or Human Resources, verses a more casual referral, where you might want to suggest EAP but do not need to have any feedback.
