The EAP is able to identify behavioral and other health problems that may affect workplace performance, and to prompt EAP users to access support. Employees and their direct family members are encouraged to use the EAP in case of any emerging issue that is hard to deal with on one's own. The sooner assistance is sought, the less sever the impact will be on one's well-being and job situation. The workplace is therefore an ideal setting in reaching a large group of individuals with potential mental health problems, emotional or other impairing issues.
The EAP offers employees, expats and their direct family members, confidential access to an international team of professionals who specialize in providing telephone and face-to-face assistance and counselling to help deal with personal and work-related issues.
Here are the main service components:
- Short term psycho-social support in local language and English.
