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 impact employee productivity, health, and well-being. EAPs generally provide confidential assessment, short-term counseling, referrals, and follow-up services to employees and their family members.

While the specific services offered through an EAP vary, they typically include counseling for personal issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and relationship problems. Work-related issues that may be addressed through an EAP include job satisfaction, burnout, conflict resolution, and managing difficult personalities.
