What does an employee assistance professional do?

EAPs are hired to assist both the employer and his/her employees. It is their job to address productivity in the workplace while assisting people who may have a mental health or addiction concern. A main component of their job is to make referrals to appropriate treatment facilities when the situation calls for it.

EAPs are beneficial to everyone in the workplace. Employees who seek treatment are more likely to maintain a steady job and create good work habits, which in turn will help the employer uphold a productive business and probably save money in the long run.

Employee Assistance Professionals have a large impact on the business industry as more companies are opting to hire them. Their responsibilities benefit both parties and their assistance has proven to be very beneficial overall.
