What is an Employee Assistance Program?​

Think of the Company Wellness Solutions’ Employee Assistance Program (EAP) as your organisation’s secret weapon in fostering a supportive and productive work environment. It’s not just a perk; it’s a strategic tool that offers confidential, professional support to employees. The goal of an Employee Assistance Program? To ensure personal problems don’t throw them off their professional game and to maintain optimal wellness across your team, increasing productivity across the board. We also offer a comprehensive monthly usage report so you can see the trends in your company in real-time!

Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a multifaceted resource, providing everything from counselling and mental health support to debt advice, legal advice, and even health advice. We’re your employee’s back-up plan for when life gets tricky, ensuring that personal challenges don’t spill over into their work. All of this is done over multiple platforms such as our unique App, web portal, toll-free number or even USSD. From an HR perspective, integrating our EAP into your benefits package is a strategic move. It’s an investment in your team’s well-being that pays off in spades, boosting productivity, engagement, and loyalty to the company.

In a nutshell, an EAP (and specifically our Employee Assistance Program South Africa) is a crucial component in your toolkit for building a supportive, productive, and resilient workplace. So, if you’re looking to take your company’s support systems to the next level, our Employee Assistance Program is a smart, strategic choice that delivers both immediate and long-term benefits.

The benefits of an EAP in South Africa:

  • Improved Employee Productivity

    EAPs can help employees address personal and work-related problems that may affect their job performance, such as stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns. By providing employees with the resources and support they need to manage these issues, employers can help improve employee productivity and performance.

  • Reduced Absenteeism and Turnover Rates

    Employee Assistance Programs can help reduce absenteeism and turnover rates by addressing the underlying causes of these issues. By providing employees with access to counseling and other support services, employers can help employees manage personal and work-related problems that may cause them to miss work or leave their job.

  • Enhanced Organizational Performance

    EAPs can help enhance organizational performance by promoting a culture of wellness and support. When employees feel valued and supported, they are more likely to be engaged and motivated, which can lead to improved job satisfaction, teamwork, and overall organizational performance.

  • Cost Savings

    EAPs can also provide cost savings to employers by reducing healthcare costs associated with untreated mental health and substance abuse issues, as well as costs associated with absenteeism, turnover, and reduced productivity.

  • Improved Employer Brand and Reputation

    Offering an EAP can help enhance an employer's brand and reputation as a socially responsible and caring organization that values the well-being of its employees. This can help attract and retain top talent and enhance the organization's overall image in the community.

Reporting monthly, quarterly, and annually showing you the return on investment with an interactive reporting dashboard that can be customised at the click of a button
Accurate, regular reporting built in to your EAP at an affordable monthly rate for all your clients. Most of our competitors only offer quarterly static reports while we offer monthly interactive reporting with click-down ability. Spend time looking at your reports and have the ability to view deeper details.
Dedicated account managers
Every company on our books receives a dedicated account manager. Most of our competitors only offer this service to their larger clients.
