Limited HR Resources? Turn to Your Employee Assistance Program

If your HR team lacks resources, an Employee Assistance Program could help!

Work-life balance, stress, and personal problems can affect a company’s workforce productivity. We’ve all been there. For HR professionals who are taking on more responsibilities than ever before, looking out for the emotional well-being of their employees is yet another challenge. An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) can take some of the heat off your HR team.

Office Counselor? Policy Expert? Leave It to the Professionals!

One of the key roles of an HR department is to support your workforce and keep your workplace running smoothly. Sometimes, that means managing performance issues and personnel challenges. An EAP’s clinical professionals can help address a variety of problems employees experience in the workplace — from tardiness and time management to job restructuring and coping with terminations. They have the experience, resources, and most importantly, the time to work one-on-one with your employees, and they’re just a phone call away! An EAP can also help you create critical policies, procedures, and provide the training you need to handle all kinds of sensitive workplace situations.

Before pushing your HR team to juggle the responsibilities of psychologists, time-management experts, or life coaches, consider tapping into your EAP’s clinical professionals.
