01 Mar Managing employee confidentiality with an EAP
So how do you deal with employee confidentiality after you implement an EAP (Employee Assistance Program) for your team? Keeping your employees’ privacy protected is not something to take lightly. In order for your employees to be able to trust you and start using the EAP, you want to make sure the confidentiality of the program is clear to them. Here are some questions you may have about this topic and how to go about confidentiality with an EAP!
What’s an EAP?
An employee assistance program in general is a voluntary, confidential program that helps your employees with life’s various challenges that could affect their job performance. This includes their health, financial status, personal well-being, and many other areas. Some EAPs may include personal counselors and coaches to help employees get through these challenges one-on-one and without the help of you as the employer. It’s important to keep that relationship between employees and employers strictly professional.
