A short guide to our Employee Assistance Programmes support

Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

Employee Assistance Programmes

Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) provide support to employees when they are experiencing difficulties in their day to day life.

The benefits 

Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) provide support to employees when they are experiencing difficulties in their day to day life. These difficulties can include anything from financial difficulties, bereavments, to mental or physical health challenges.

EAP will provide unlimited telephone counselling 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Many will also provide face to face counselling sessions and can provide a health and wellbeing portal with a range of online support.

We believe Employee Assistance programmes are one of the most valuable schemes a company can have in place. Companies should have as many channels as possible for employees to seek help should they be suffering, and EAP can provide one of the valuable lifelines.

Employee Assistance Programme considerations

At CB Benefits part of our objective is to obtain as much important information from you, so we can assist you to make the right decisions for your company.  Here are some of the key considerations we would discuss, when helping you reach a decision:

  • What is the current and future anticipated demographic of your workforce?
  • What is your budget?
  • What are your competitors providing their employees?
  • What are your current levels of absenteeism?
  • What channels are available for employees to seek help

Another key consideration is can EAP be included as an add on via a benefits such as Life Assurance or Income Protection
