    What is an EAP?

    An EAP is a strategic and cost-effective workplace programme that is designed to assist productivity and attendance issues within the workplace and support employees to identify and resolve personal concerns that may affect job performance.

    These issues might include health, marital, family, financial, alcohol, drug, legal, emotional, stress, or other personal issues.

    EAPs act as a gateway to a wide range of services and support functions, including:images6

    • Counselling and other short-term psychological services
    • Money advice and debt management
    • Child and eldercare information services
    • Legal information and guidance
    • Information on emotional, work-life and workplace issues
    • Management referrals and support.
    • Management information on interventions

    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.

    For the latest information on the tax status of EAPs, please refer to the HMRC website.
