We at Resourcing Edge know that the employees make the foundation of any company. Without them, companies would not be able to operate with the capacity or efficiency necessary to be successful. Naturally, employers want their employees to be at the top of their game in order to realize and strive for success. Medical insurance, paid time off, and retirement plans are just a few of the many benefits designed to support your employees. Resourcing Edge offers all of these, in addition to another, often overlooked, benefit that we think has the potential to be the most meaningful of all: Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

The EAP can be used in many ways. Your employees will have the option (one of the most popular) to contact a professional counselor to confide in regarding personal matters outside of the workplace. Employees may call for personal well-being or health purposes, relationship issues, family issues, substance abuse or addiction, or workplace challenges. Any number of instances can lead an employee to utilize the EAP.

The EAP allows employees to take advantage of this service with five free sessions per year.

One of the most attractive characteristics of a company is promoting a happy and healthy work environment. Employees who are mentally and physically healthy will be more productive at work, take fewer sick days, and be more engaged with management and fellow coworkers. The EAP helps with that, too.

Another reason an employee could utilize the EAP is when the unexpected happens at the workplace. Whether that be an injury, an illness, or even the death of a team member, different employees will process the unexpected and unfortunate event in different ways. Using the EAP, employers are able to have a professional counselor onsite available for their employees. This is a great way to show the care and concern you have for your employees, while providing them with the support they may need.

Employees can access this great benefit by downloading the LifeWorks app. The app is free and is available for both iOS and Android operating systems. Login information and other EAP questions can be answered by reaching out to your Client Account Manager.
