Why Your Company Should Provide an EAP

All employees experience problems in their lives. It is a fact of nature. Even getting a promotion, having a baby, getting married and adult children leaving home can cause unexpected stress. Personal problems are not always left at home.

Employees often shoulder invisible burdens that threaten both their well-being and the organization they represent. Employees who are not working at their top effectiveness are affecting your company's bottom line.

The Hidden Costs of Mental Health issues in the Workplace

According to the Forbes article, “The Cost Of Ignoring Mental Health In The Workplace,” mental health and substance abuse cost US businesses between $80 and $100 billion annually. Another study showed that serious mental illness costs America up to $193.2 billion in lost earnings per year.

Depression is thought to count for up to 400 million lost work days annually.

Providing an EAP for your employees can help your company mitigate the costs to your organization and contribute to a caring atmosphere for your employees.
