Key Benefits Of EAPs To Employers
Employers spend a large amount of funds on providing a variety of benefits to employees, including health insurance programs. They might wonder about the specific benefits of EAPs. Is investing in this category of care truly worth it? There are many benefits of providing an EAP to employees, including increased productivity, low costs compared with the potential gains and a high ROI. Here are a few benefits to consider.
Employee productivity is improved. Employees struggling with personal problems have difficulty focusing at work.
They may even struggle enough that they call in sick frequently.
As a result, the company is affected by potential losses.
The Society for Human Resource Management reports that companies lose 36 percent of their productivity as a result of employee absences.
Introducing an EAP can help solve this problem.
Studies have shown that implementing an EAP can lower time lost at work by 33 percent and decrease or work-related accidents by 65 percent.
Improve employee retention
A positive work environment benefits all employees. Many employees stay on the job due to friendships with co-workers. It’s reported that 51 percent of employees stay at a job due to positive relationships with co-workers. The work environment can be improved when people can get access to the resources required to handle challenges in their personal lives. EAPs help employees stay present and happy at work. When issues come up, they are resolved faster.
Offering EAPs to employees demonstrates the employer and human resources are genuinely concerned about the employee’s happiness, but it also helps increase workplace productivity. Employees know that if they have a difficult time in their lives, there are resources that can help them navigate those situations.
