Employee Assistance Program
Southcoast Occupational Health's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a professionally staffed confidential resource offered by an employer. The EAP provides assistance with personal problems affecting job performance and other areas of an employee's life.
Employees are a vital part of a business and valuable members of the team.
Better employee emotional health means healthier profits for employers. With an EAP, companies benefit directly by:
- Less absenteeism.
- Fewer accidents.
- Decreased use of medical and insurance benefits.
- Savings in workers' compensation claims.
- Fewer grievances and arbitrations.
- Fewer employee replacement costs.
- Improved job performance and increased job productivity.
How an Employee Assistance Program Works
EAP services are offered to employees and immediate family members as a benefit of employment. Employees may contact the EAP on their own for assistance with personal problems and refer the employee to the EAP.
The program is voluntary and strictly confidential. No information regarding the employee's assessment and counseling sessions will be reported back to the supervisor unless the employee gives written authorization.
Educational & Wellness Programs
Southcoast Occupational Health offers a wide variety of training programs that can be specifically tailored to meet each company's individual needs.
