The Benefits of an Employee Assistance Program
 
Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) are employee benefit programs offered by many employers, typically in conjunction with a health insurance plan. EAPs are intended to help employees deal with personal problems that might adversely impact their work performance.
 

Each year declining job performance by troubled employees decreases employers revenue in, absenteeism, decreased productivity, increased administration, and increased insurance premiums. Declining job performance is frequently caused by: Marital and family problems, drug and alcohol abuse and personality conflicts with co-workers. Left unresolved, these problems continue with help being sought only during times of crisis such as disciplinary action or pending dismissal. At this point the problem is at its worst and prognosis for successful treatment at its lowest. In the average industry, 10% or more of the workforce is comprised of people who fit into the troubled employee category. Studies indicate that a troubled employee costs an employer 25% of his or her salary. This figure does not include the administrative costs of disciplining, terminating and replacing an employee if the problem remains unsolved. Nor does the figure reflect the cost of retraining a new employee.
 
 
Employee assistance programs seek to reduce this cost by helping to identify the troubled employee early and directing them to the appropriate level of care. Early identification of a problem improves the prognosis and abbreviates the problem thereby reducing losses in time and money to the organization.
 
 
Finally an affective EAP promotes the health and productivity of the individual. Studies suggest that offering EAP’s may result in various benefits for employers, including lower insurance costs, reduced turnover and absenteeism, and higher employee productivity and morale.
