What is an Employee Assistance Programme?
An Employee Assistance Programme is an employer-enacted platform which helps employees to overcome personal issues. Issues, whether inside or outside work can have an adverse impact on their health, well-being or work performance.
It’s worth noting, not all EAPs offer exactly the same services. As the employer you should choose your workplace’s EAP carefully.
More To Me offers an Employee Assistance Programme with a difference, we enable users to instantly access an EAP counsellor as and when they need to. We also provide news and content related to your employees’ preferences.
