What is an Employee Assistance Program (EAP)?

An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential and professional counselling service offered to employees to help them with work or personal issues. The aim of EAP is to optimise employee performance and productivity to allow the organisation to thrive and flourish. EAP encourages an early intervention to ensure that employees are managing their mental health appropriately.
