Why an employee assistance program

50% of absences in workplace are due to psychological problems.

Unfortunately, prejudice stills exists when it comes to psychological problems discouraging 2/3 of the people to seek the help they need, while 4 out of 5 people, if treated, recover quickly.

The impacts are significant:  high costs due to depression, etc. can amount to more than $10,000 per year.  The EAP can only be but beneficial for your organization.
