What is an EAP?

An employee assistance program (EAP) is a program that assists employees with personal and/or work-related problems which may be affecting their physical health, mental well-being, or work performance. EAPs are also sometimes used to refer simply to short term, confidential counselling services for employees who are having personal difficulties affecting their overall life satisfaction and everyday functioning.

What are some examples of an EAP?

  • Counselling services
  • Wellness programmes/initiatives (e.g. office yoga session, company fun-runs/outdoor activities)
  • Workshops aimed at wellbeing and health-related topics (mental, physical, or both)
  • Focus groups or roundtable events (where each person can express their needs, desires, and potential blockers to their mental health/productivity)

What is an alternative employee assistance program?

Many companies who already have employee assistance programmes in place find that these services are not used by nearly enough employees. This hinders the EAP’s ability to fulfil its intended purpose and will therefore be limited in its effectiveness. That’s why Plumm has made it easier than ever for employers to provide their workforces with an all-in-one mental wellbeing solution that can be used 24/7, on-the-go, and completely confidentially.

How does an EAP help employees?

EAPs help employees to cope better with personal and work-related stressors. It helps them to evaluate their needs, expectations, goals, and current performance. This can help them to achieve better work-life balance, increase their job satisfaction and productivity, help them prioritise better, and inform them on how to communicate their feelings and thoughts better. EAPs can also help with personal growth, improve awareness of certain topics, and can help them deal with unresolved trauma or grievances.
