What is an Employee Assistance Program?

Employee assistance programs (EAPs) are employer-sponsored programs that provide confidential assessment, short-term counseling, referrals, and follow-up services to employees who have personal or work-related problems.

An EAP can be a valuable resource for employees and employers alike. Employees can get help with problems that may be affecting their job performance, while employers can see improved employee productivity and decreased absenteeism.

EAPs are typically run by outside providers, although some organizations have in-house staff who provide these services. Employee participation in an EAP is usually voluntary, although some employers may require employees to participate if they are experiencing job-related problems.
