EAP – Employee Assistance Programme

Get In Touch

A company’s biggest asset is its people. An Employee Assistance Plan (EAP) is a valuable benefit. Making a commitment to the well-being of your staff is also a commitment to the well-being of your business as a whole. A healthy workforce is a happy workforce, is a productive workforce and less likely to take time off work due to stress-related illnesses.

Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP‘s) can be used to address a broad range of topics which may be encountered in the workplace. These problems and issues may include, but are not limited to, relationships, health, trauma, substance abuse, gambling and other addictions, financial problems, depression, anxiety disorders, psychiatric disorders, communication problems, legal and coping with change.

We help you to create a healthy and safe environment for your workforce by enhancing workplace vitality. This ensures your business remains competitive.

Employee Assistance Programs

EAPs are intended to help employees deal with personal problems that might adversely impact their job performance, health, and well-being

Why you should offer WAKE® to your employees?

It’s pretty simple: healthy workers are more motivated and therefore more productive. It costs more to hire and train a new employee than it does to help and retain a current worker. It also shows your workers that you care about their welfare.
