Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Employee Assistance for Your Business, Health Practice or Care Facility

According to Safe Work Australia, 92% of serious work-related mental health condition claims were attributed to mental stress. And a recent Head’s Up report revealed that 91% of Australian employees believe mentally healthy workplaces are important, but only 52% of Australian employees believe their workplace is mentally healthy.

“Australian employees expect mental health support in the workplace environment, but many are not aware of, or are unable to access appropriate resources.” Heads Up / Beyond Blue - State of the Workplace Mental Health in Australia

Through the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, many business owners and employees are experiencing tremendous distress and financial uncertainly.

In addition, it has been a challenging time for aged care and disability service providers and their staff, with Royal Commissions and the COVID-19 pandemic causing increased distress.

Providing emotional and psychological support to employees during times of crisis and distress is critical for individual employees’ wellbeing and ensuring the managing of a business-as-usual approach.

Employee Assistance services can also support senior managers and business owners, who are under immense strain.

Regardless of whether mental stress is related to work or personal issues, an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) can provide the critical support that employees may need to proactively address their mental stress before it escalates.

WorkPlacePLUS is currently providing Employee Assistance services via phone, telehealth and teleconferencing. We are available to support you and your team throughout the COVD-19 crisis.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

An EAP may be a component of your workplace wellness program. An EAP is a counseling and education service offered by the employer but facilitated by an independent provider. It is designed to confidentially assist employees with a range of issues in a variety of ways.

WorkPlacePLUS offers a holistic, fully integrated EAP incorporating mental, emotional and physical health education. Our EAP’s are positioned to deliver innovative, best practice and proactive solutions. Our service delivery model takes into account the four areas of wellness:

  • Psychological Health

  • Physical Health

  • Lifestyle

  • Working Environment
