Helping the Human Side of Companies
21st Century EAP is a workplace program that helps employees and their immediate household members address personal concerns such as marital or family issues, depression, anxiety, substance use, stress management, or other issues that may be affecting job performance.
21st Century EAP also helps employers address workplace issues through consultation, training, and on-site crisis response.
EAP provides confidential short-term counseling, assessment, and referrals. It is an employer-paid benefit, which means that is free to the employee and their immediate household members. It is a non-medical benefit and is separate from health insurance.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified job-related stress as the leading workplace health problem. The CDC recognizes that poor mental health and stress can negatively affect employees in areas such as job performance and productivity, communication and engagement with co-workers as well as have a long-term impact on physical and mental health resulting in increased absenteeism.
According to the American Psychological Association (APA), 1 in 5 adults will experience a diagnosable mental illness in any given year. Of those, more than half will remain untreated. When employees receive treatment for their mental health, it helps to reduce absenteeism, increase productivity, lower health care costs, and decrease disability costs.
Long-term stress can contribute to serious physical health issues such as high blood pressure and heart disease as well as mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.
21st Century EAP offers a wide variety of training to help employers and employees with a number of work/life issues and we can customize training to meet the specific needs of your organization. From workplace harassment to dealing with difficult people, we can help! Managers have unlimited access to the EAP for a consultation to help resolve issues in the workplace before they become performance issues.
