What is an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)?

With anxiety, stress and depression on the rise, it’s essential that workplaces give employees the tools they need to thrive. An Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is a workplace benefit that is designed to support the wellbeing of employees.

By offering an EAP, employers can help employees to counter any problems they may be experiencing in both work and life.

When you can help to support your employees through poor physical or mental health or issues with emotional wellbeing – you get a happier, healthier workforce who feel valued and supported by their employer.
