Paul Roberts receives Emeritus Award from UK EAPA

UK EAPA Board member, Paul Roberts, was presented with award of Emeritus Member at the March 2017 Annual General Meeting. This award is given in recognition of Paul’s ongoing commitment and dedication to the employee assistance and industry profession.

The award of Emeritus Member to Paul Roberts is richly deserved. Paul has been an active contributor to the UK EAPA Board over many years and through his commitment and detailed knowledge of the EAP industry has made a great contribution to the work of the Association.

“Most recently Paul has led our research project, one of the most significant initiatives in UK EAPA’s recent history.  He has liaised closely with The Work Foundation, the Board and key industry players to keep the project on track and ensure its focus and scope stayed aligned with the original objectives. The resulting report represents one of the most comprehensive and detailed independent studies into the UK EAP market that has ever been produced.  This outcome has been due in no small part to Paul’s expertise and hard work and both the Association and the wider industry owe him a debt of thanks,” said David Price, UK EAPA Treasurer.
