What Is An Employee Assistance Program?
Basically, the EAP is a program that provides counseling support over a wide range of life issues. EAPs grew out of industry as a means of supporting employees when supervisors or managers knew that personal concerns were affecting employee job performance. The idea was that if corporations provided assistance to help workers resolve those personal concerns, then the return on the investment in terms of increased job production would outweigh the cost of the assistance. Over the last 30-35 years, that premise has largely proven to be true...hence, EAPs have become almost standard parts of "Corporate America", and I'm very happy that AISD has now added this benefit for the employees of our district.
