EAP Program Overview

An Employee Assistance Program helps create a healthy workplace environment that can improve motivation, dedication and, in turn, the bottom line of your company. Employees are more apt to use consulting services when an EAP is available, reaping the benefits of early intervention. An active EAP results in:

  • Improved employee productivity
  • Increased employee satisfaction
  • Reduced employee turnover

Live Well Counseling Center EAP has a proven record of working effectively with businesses in developing a healthy workplace environment. This is achieved by providing employees and their families with the ability to work through the difficulties and struggles of life in general. Healthy employees are the foundation of a healthy business. When employees are not mentally burdened with family problems, they become more focused on their jobs and improve things such as coworker relations, customer service and productivity.

Tools can also be provided through an EAP program to bring about entire system changes within departments or plants. Managers have a partner in EAP, a resource enabling them to enhance their own management styles and skills, as well as to help address problem employees, harassment issues of any type and workplace conflict.

EAP usage for our program reflects a rate higher than the national average. It is also our philosophy that individuals need to receive face-to-face counseling to truly reap the benefits of any type of therapy. We provide a wide array of expertise from within our staff as well as from those who serve as our affiliate providers across the nation.
