Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) have evolved to become a core product for many businesses.

Mental Health propositions are currently at the forefront of many business owners’ priorities and implementing an Employee Assistance Programme is a key factor in offering a strong health and wellbeing scheme for staff.

The purpose of an Employee Assistance Programme is to provide mental health and wellbeing support to the workforce, helping employees remain in work while reducing presenteeism – a need to work during periods of illness to alleviate job insecurity fears. Like the other employee benefits, it is used as an important tool for retaining staff, reducing absence and increasing productivity and employee satisfaction.
