If you’re looking for a detailed framework to assess how effective your EAP has delivered on its objectives, click here.
Most Employee Assistance Plans ‘sit there and wait’ – providing service to those employees seeking a specific solution, or help with a specific problem. While they are available year round, they spring into action only when the employee triggers a request for assistance.
…and that’s what costs you.
This tool helps you get a grip on the actual cost of having a passive EAP:
To reduce the inefficiency, there are two options: 1. increase awareness of the program or 2. increase utilization of the program.
Colleague Health provides a ‘forward leaning’ level of assistance – your plan takes an active role in educating your staff on issues relevant to their physical, emotional, sleep, and financial health and fitness.
Through a constant drip of interactive emails and/or texts (from the employee-only High5 Magazine), your staff become aware and empowered with the knowledge they need, as they connect with the support provider they seek to address their specific problem.
100% awareness. 100% utilization.
