Small to medium business EAP

EAP for Small to Medium Businesses

Having an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for your business will not only provide your employees with counselling services to assist them and their families, but it will also provide your business with a positive return on investment (ROI).


A report by Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC) has discovered that;

“Mental health conditions present substantial costs to organisations. However, through the successful implementation of an effective action to create a mentally healthy workplace, organisations, on average, can expect a positive return on investment (ROI) of 2.3. That is, for every dollar spent on successfully implementing an appropriate action, there is on average $2.30 in benefits to be gained by the organisation.”

Recently, your employees and their families may have found it challenging to locate psychology services. The reasons were reported by The Sydney Morning Herald, October 21, 2021, that suggested a call for the doubling of the mental health workforce as “calls to mental health support lines have skyrocketed, emergency department presentations for self-harm have risen and one in five psychologists have been forced to close their books as the pandemic continues to take a toll on the nations’ mental health.”


Some public and private sector organisations who are seeking the supply of products and services from vendors are adding the requirement of these vendors to have an EAP service within their organisation as part of the selection process.


Areas in which EAP services can provide value to small to medium enterprises;

- Potential increase in profitability as sick days are reduced and improved employee retention, which saves recruiting and training new staff;

- Less distractions caused by life and mental health challenges can assist with improved work safety, a positive working environment and improved productivity;

- An affordable solution as there are no upfront costs or retainer and pay as your employees use the service;

- Design a flexible solution to meet your organisation's needs.
