Like so many other areas, the Internet is revolutionizing how employers offer employee assistance programs (EAP). A new booklet called, "Expanding EAP Services Online: 11 Ways to Get the Most Out of Internet Opportunities" is yours free just for the asking.
The editors of the Employee Assistance Program Management Letter publish the booklet and offer basic information about an online EAP as well as more advanced administrative features. One section of the booklet is dedicated to three industry experts who see the Internet as a boon for EAP services.
Life is hard. Employers today recognize this and are offering resources to employees to help ease the pain of marital and family problems, financial or legal difficulties, stress, and workplace conflict. Smart employers know these issues can become human resource problems when they interfere with attendance, concentration, the quality of the work product, and workplace morale.
Employee Assistance Programs provide professional counselors whose job it is to provide confidential assessment, short-term counseling and referral information to employees and their family members in order to assist in dealing with these, and related, concerns. Most large corporations currently offer some type of EAP program to employees.
