EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMME (EAP)

What is an EAP?

An Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is a purpose built service that offers a vehicle for employees to resolve the many and varied, personal or work related concerns, which can have an effect on their performance in the workplace.

These concerns can include: depression, anxiety, stress, relationship difficulties, anger management issues, harassment and bullying and other associated issues.

Abate Counselling & EAP Limited’s EAP Service assist people to explore and resolve the difficulties they are experiencing and help them discover alternative ways of managing themselves so that they can decide what course of action or behaviour will be helpful and productive for them.

Abate Counselling & EAP Limited recognise the fact that early identification of problems, by the employees themselves, or other concerned individuals, can reduce the negative impact on work performance. Resolving some of the major employee difficulties via Abate Counselling & EAP Limited’s individually tailored EAP Service greatly assists in achieving a more happy and balanced outlook necessary for an organisation to perform at the highest level.

 

Why should your organisation have an EAP?

Abate Counselling & EAP Limited are conscious of the fact that in recent times the workplace environment has changed beyond all recognition. Companies are now facing unparalleled, increased competition in the commercial arena.

Organisations, and by default, their employees are under increasing pressure to perform at optimum level at all times, resulting in longer working hours and increased workloads.

Abate Counselling & EAP Limited recognise that one of the most important assets a company can have is its labour force. It is therefore within an organisation’s best interest to produce an environment that is positive and workforce oriented. Abate Counselling & EAP Limited have Employee Assistance Programmes that are a key element in maintaining a successful and cost-effective business.

Our dedicated EAPs promote a sense of well-being amongst personnel that has a knock-on effect of increasing efficiency, productivity, satisfaction and crucially, long-term committment towards the employing organisation.

Choosing the right EAP Provider

Abate Counselling & EAP Limited has long since realised the need for an EAP Service to reflect the core values and ideals of individual companies in order to achieve optimum Worklife balance.
