We want to believe that everything is great all the time, but the reality is, sometimes our employees need help. Having healthy employees increases your bottom line, but every day stress can negatively impact employees, affecting their concentration, the workplace morale, and the employee’s ability to perform well on the job. EAP (Employee Assistance Program) and SAP (Substance Abuse Professional) programs can help your employees and get them back on track to a happy, healthy life.
EAP uses professional counselors who provide confidential assessment and short-term counseling to employees and their families. They deal with a range of issues, including, but not limited to, marriage and family problems, stress, financial and legal difficulties, psychological issues, and grief.
According to several studies, “EAPs help decrease absenteeism, worker’s compensation claims, labor disputes and on-the-job accidents as well as decrease costs associated with healthcare, substance abuse and mental health issues.”
SAPs are professionals who evaluate employees who have violated drug and alcohol program regulations and make recommendations about education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare. By offering help to your employees who are abusing drugs, you increase employee morale and will change someone’s life for the better. This will encourage employee retention and dedication, while also ensuring that your workplace is safe.
