Over the years EAPs have become an integral tool in an organisation’s attempts to engage employees and support the health and wellbeing of its workforce. In fact, the latest independent research commissioned by EAPA UK (2008) reveals that 5200 organisations – representing over 8.2 million employees – now enjoy the services of an EAP.
