What is an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)?

An Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is an employee benefit that provides your team with 24/7 confidential support and practical advice on issues that might be impacting their wellbeing or work performance. An EAP provides counselling and impartial support from experts on personal or work-related problems and can help to stop them developing and leading to absence from work.

We’re here to support your team’s mental wellbeing any time of the day or night.

Sometimes issues or concerns at work or at home can affect your employees and lead to absence or presenteeism, but sympathetic, impartial support and advice may be all that’s needed.

Employees and their family members over the age of 16 and living at the same address, can easily access online resources covering a range of self help topics. They can also call our free employee assistance programme helpline 24/7 to get immediate emotional and practical support and advice from a qualified expert.

Some of the benefits companies and employees can gain from the employee assistance programme helpline are:
