Relate Employee Assist Services
Relate’s Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is an employer-led care package providing emotional support for employees and their families for any problems and challenges that they may face, both at work and at home.
Adding an employee Assistance service to your employment package shows that you take the welfare of your employees seriously, value their wellbeing as well as taking current health and safety legislation seriously.
Conflict in the workplace can affect morale and productivity and cause stress. We can offer counselling to help improve workplace relationships.
Stress at work can be a serious problem for employers and organisations. With initiatives such as the Health and Safety Executive’s stress management standards, employers are assessing the ways in which they audit and reduce stress. Relate is working with many types of employers to find the most appropriate ways to support staff.
Stress can reduce the efficiency and output of your teams. Productivity may fall and sickness absence may increase. Many employers understand that a small amount of money, targeted strategically at a problem, can save losses in the future.
