EAP FAQs

What Is The Work/Life Component of EAP?

We recognize that employees and their family members often need help above and beyond traditional mental health counseling in order to maintain a healthy and well-balanced work and personal life. Therefore, BayCare supports the employee’s everyday needs with online services comprised of more than 20,000 resources providing information on health and wellness, family life, financial and legal questions, self-assessment tools, and more. 

How Will My Organization Benefit From EAP?

Since the 1970s, studies by Fortune 500 companies have shown that there is a return on investment of between $5 and $7 for every dollar spent on EAP.  Savings are realized through increased productivity, employee retention and reduction in absenteeism and accidents.  EAP provides consultation to management on how to recognize and refer valued employees to the program., as well as consultation on development of policies and procedures such as drug free workplace and violence prevention. Also included is consultation on developing drug free workplace and violence prevention policies and procedures.
