EAPs are wide spread in the US. Over 100 million American workers have access to such a service. The 2008 SHRM survey found that 75% of all businesses offered an EAP to their workforce, showing a steady growth over the last twenty years (over 200% increase in market penetration) of EAP take-up across the continent. Especially large employers and global players are more likely to implement an EAP thus making the introduction of an EAP also in their European subsidiaries a fact creating momentum also for local and nationally based companies to follow this trend.
CCS witnesses a growing recognition of these issues in Western, Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Russia, where for major business players we are engaged in setting up and running comprehensive preventative health management systems with EAP at the core.
