What is EAP – Corpsychcare

EAP stands for Employee Assistance Program. Organisations typically introduce Employee Assistance Programs because of three reasons:

  1. The programs form part of an overall Occupational Health and Safety program and culture.
  2. The organisation recognises that the mental health of their employees is important to performance and workforce productivity.
  3. The program is seen as a benefit to staff aiding in the retention and recruitment of high quality personnel.

There are different types of EAP services and a variety of considerations as to how such a program can be introduced.
