What is an Employee Assistance Program?

An employee assistance program (EAP) is a work-based intervention program designed to address personal and work-related problems that may affect job performance.

EAP services are provided by professional counselors and are confidential. Employees can receive help with a variety of issues, including substance abuse, relationship problems, stress management, financial concerns, and more.


Employee mental health in Nepal

employee wellness

Nepal’s workplace culture has traditionally been one in which employees are expected to be available 24/7, often working long hours with little or no time off. This can lead to immense pressure and stress, which can have a negative impact on mental health.

In recent years, however, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of employee mental health, and many companies are now starting to take steps to address this issue. There are approximately three hundred and fifty companies in Nepal that offer some sort of mental health support to their employees. This is a significant increase from just a few years ago when such support was virtually non-existent.

EAP Benefits

Employee assistance programs can have varied benefits. It can help the employees with work-life balance, provide support during difficult times, and offer resources for career development. In addition, it can also improve communication and collaboration within the workplace. There can also be cost savings associated with EAPs, as they can help to reduce absenteeism, turnover, and healthcare costs.
