Employee Assistance Programs help organizations achieve business health and productivity goals, and support individuals working to maintain or improve their productivity, functioning, and pro-social behavior, as well as remain at or return to the workplace.
Examples: Examples of life events for which consultation may be provided include education, adoption, parenting, financial or legal issues. Health and wellness promotion can focus on activities such as access to health reimbursement accounts, on-site health assessments, and health coaching on topics including chronic disease, stress management, and physical fitness. Workplace flexibility policies may address, for example, paid and unpaid time off, phased return from leave, job sharing, flexible time, and telecommuting, and programs related to on-site childcare, back-up childcare, and elder care support and resources.
