Why Employee Assistance Programs?

Today’s managers work hard to boost morale, reduce employee turnover, and increase productivity. Wellness 2000’s nationally-recognized Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides managers and employees with the tools to manage difficult issues. We help manage employee and family stressors, and we offer counseling to foster a work-life balance. When referrals are required, we utilize professionals in your area. Our services consist of prevention, assessment, training, professional counseling, and crisis response. Businesses utilizing our EAP services can expect reduced health care and disability claims costs, more productive employees, and a more engaging work climate with fewer inter-group conflicts.
