Employer Frequently Asked Questions?

Q:
What does an EAP cost?
A:
Depending on the amount of services an employer wants to include in an EAP program, the range is usually from $1.00/employee/month to $2.00/employee/month. We are able to keep our costs very competitive because of the volume of employees we currently serve. We will work with you to tailor a program to your needs while enabling you to provide the highest quality EAP services to your employees.

Q:
Can your EAP help with DOT regulations?
A:
Not only can we help, we will free you from all of the hassle and confusion associated it. Your employee tests positive for alcohol/drugs. You receive the results, give it to us and we handle the rest. We do a full clinical assessment, determine need for any treatment, follow up throughout treatment and give you the necessary reporting. We return the employee back to duty, then set up the post-treatment alcohol/drug testing schedule for the required period of time. We are completely independent of treatment so we have no financial investment in the person going to treatment or how long they stay in treatment.

Q:
Can the EAP save me money?
A:
Department of Labor statistics state that for every dollar an employer spends on EAP, he/she saves between eight and sixteen dollars. Have you ever stopped to think how much a difficult employee may cost you? In time, worry, waiting, confrontation, waiting some more, other employee morale, lost productivity, termination, replacement, training. . . What if all of that could have been prevented by referring that employee to your EAP, having us help that employee help him/herself with a personal problem (whatever it may be) and have the employee return to full productivity? Probably beyond dollar value.

Q:
Does EMPLOYEE RESOURCES provide trainings to my employees?
A:
Training is one of our specialties. We provide Employee Orientations to your employee population to educate them about our EAP and how to access our EAP when they or a family member has a personal problem. We provide Supervisory Trainings to your managers (even if that person only supervises one employee) to teach them how to refer a troubled or difficult employee to our EAP. These more formal Supervisory Referrals take place when a person is exhibiting declining job performance and may be or about to be placed in a disciplinary process. The point is that the referral to our EAP may help to resolve a personal problem that the employee is dealing with that is causing the job performance problem to begin with. It is completely confidential. The employee is protected from having to "expose" his/her personal life to the employer. You as the employer (supervisor) do not have to deal with personal issues that for you are best left alone. The employee gets help, you get your productivity up, truly a win/win for everyone.These can be provided during lunch hours, before/after work, between shifts. We use our very talented staff and often will ask some of the experts in our own community to provide this education and training. We also provide Training and Development to your employees on all kinds of topics of interest. For example: •Addiction •Domestic Violence •Nutrition/Weight Loss •Adolescents’ Legal Rights •ElderCare/Abuse •Obsessive Behaviors •Anxiety Management •Financial Planning •Parenting Skills •Assertiveness Training •Gambling Addictions •Road Rage •Balancing Career/Family •Harassment •Self-Esteem •Caregiver’s Support •Healthy Lifestyles •Sensitivity Training •Career Counseling •Home Safety •Sexual Harassment •Codependency •Improving Memory •Stress Management •Communication Skills •Literacy •Teen Pregnancy •Decision-Making Skills •Managing Grief/Loss •Teen Substance Abuse •Depression •Marriage Enrichment •Women’s Issues •Divorce Mediation •Mental Illness (specify) •Workplace Violence. These can be provided during lunch hours, before/after work, between shifts. We use our very talented staff and often will ask some of the experts in our own community to provide this education and training.

Q:
If a crises occurred at our worksite, how could EMPLOYEE RESOURCES help?
A:
Our clinical staff is specifically trained in Critical Incident Stress Debriefing. When a crisis occurs on the job (serious or fatal accident, death on the job of natural causes, rape, robbery, etc.) we conduct debriefing sessions for your employees to help prevent post-traumatic stress which is a very serious condition with long-term effects.
