What is EAP?

An employee assistance program (EAP) is a value-added benefit many organizations offer their teams at no cost to their employees. Traditionally, EAPs addressed issues like alcohol or substance use disorders; however, most now cover a broad range of areas such as child or elder care, relationship challenges, financial or legal problems, wellness matters and traumatic events like workplace violence and natural disasters. 

How Will My Organization Benefit From EAP?

Supporting employees’ emotional well-being can help improve work performance and morale. A 2018 study found that the amount of lost productive time over a three-month period of employee distress was reduced by 39 hours as a result of EAP utilization, primarily from reducing the amount of unproductive time on the job. This translates to a $3.37 return on investment for every $1 invested in EAP.*

Why Should I Consider Using BayCare? 

As a local EAP provider, we know our providers, the treatment facilities and the local resources. Your EAP provider should be able to assist you with the specific needs of your company and have regular contact with you. It should be able to provide trainings, management consultation and critical incident debriefings and assist with management referrals and drug testing policies. It should provide regular utilization reports and assist you in promoting and increasing, rather than avoiding, utilization of the program. And these are precisely the things the BayCare team provides to its partner organizations.

How Can I Bring BayCare EAP Services to My Organization?*

Since each organization is unique, so are our EAP services. We tailor the deliverables to meet those needs. Some companies may need more on-site workshops and trainings while another organization may need more on-site critical incident responses. We don’t want a company to pay for a service they may never need, so we’ll take the time to get to know the company, its culture, its goals and its challenges before providing an EAP proposal.
