31 Dec How to choose the right EAP (Employee Assistance Program)!
Finding the right employee assistance program for your team of employees is vital! There are many factors that come into play when choosing the right employee assistance program for your business. Here are some questions/things to ask and think about while looking at different programs that are available. These will give you an idea of which one is best for you and how to implement an EAP as one of your work benefits!
-What an EAP is and how you can add it to your work benefits!
An EAP stands for an employee assistance program, which is a voluntary, confidential program that helps employees through various life challenges. Your management team and employers are all welcome to use it as well! An EAP works great as one of the work benefits for your employees! We at Thrive help take on all your employees’ personal issues, so you as an employer don’t have to! It’s definitely a great investment into your team!
-What does an EAP offer?
The challenges your employees face may affect their job performances, health, and personal well-being. An EAP is great to add into your work benefits because it assists in helping your employees face these things with counseling, assessments, and referrals for things like stress, financial issues, substance disorders, and so much more.
We at Thrive EAP offer services for small businesses! This includes one-on-one counseling, 24/7 access to a behavioral specialist, and access to our web portal with thousands of resources and articles!
-Protecting your employees’ privacy!
Most employee assistance programs are great about keeping your employees’ privacy to themselves! Our team at Thrive work with professionals who are trained in this area and keep all matters between them and the client. This way, the employees’ personal issues are concealed, and this helps to make them feel confident to discuss them with us.
-Are there hidden costs?
There are times that employee assistance programs won’t be upfront about all their costs. So make sure to do your research and give them a call if you have to! We at Thrive have all of our prices listed on the Pricing tab above! If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact us using the Company tab above!
-How do we refer our employees to the EAP?
It’s important to know how to use the EAP services once you get them! So with Thrive, the way it works is you can simply refer your employees straight to us! Make sure to refer them to us, and we can handle everything from there with our team of professionals. Also, let your employees know upfront when your EAP service first becomes active.
