Built in to the premium, your group life or disability plan probably includes the value added benefit of an EAP ‐ Employee Assistance Plan.
Employees deal with stressful issues often without knowing where to turn for help. Maybe they’re having financial problems. Or they serve as a caregiver for an elderly parent. Or a spouse has issues with substance abuse. (Think about how your own productivity suffers when dealing with the day to day stress of life.)
An EAP gives your employees absolutely private access to professional counselors. Your HR Manager will appreciate that!
And so will your employees.
