Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Employees are your most valuable resource. Each year, one in every five employees (or 20 percent of your work force) suffers from a personal problem that inhibits productivity - theirs, yours, and all too often that of their co-workers. When they are not working to full capacity, your business suffers. Stressors such as family issues, financial, credit and legal problems, health concerns and life transitions can detract from an employee’s valuable time, attention and energy when they’re at work.

Mercy EAP acts as a partner with the employer in providing professional, confidential assistance to employees and their families through their own initiative or by supervisor referral. By establishing an early identification and intervention approach in dealing with performance problems in the workplace, our licensed providers work with employees, supervisors and managers to problem solve, identify symptoms and offer guidance.

Incorporating an EAP into your organization can help reduce costs due to workplace accidents, absenteeism, disability and medical claims, employee retention, and lost productivity.

  • Assessment, referral and follow up services
  • Short-term counseling
  • Management consultation
