CONFIDENTIAL CONSULTANCY SERVICE FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES

Everybody sometimes faces personal problems which cannot be solved easily and quickly on your own. However, trouble in personal life influences individuals negatively at work through drops in performance and motivation, but can also cause a negative atmosphere and conflict in the workplace. Ample evidence exists showing that dissatisfaction in personal life significantly deteriorates not only work performance but also increases absenteeism and the overall attrition levels.

Employee Assistance Program is a tool created to help employees effectively overcome their problems in any area of life. It is based on a confidential consultancy service which is provided to the employee by qualified professionals – psychologists, psychotherapists, legal and financial advisors.

Employee Assistance Program brings the benefit of cost reduction and an increase in overall productivity to the whole company.

How does it works?

Employee Assistance offers consultancy services to employees
provided by qualified professionals – psychologists,
psychotherapists, lawyers and financial advisers, while confidence is guaranteed.

Once the service is active, any employee covered by the program can use its benefits. The first contact is established by contacting the Employee assistance consultant—either via a phone call or email. The goal is to establish communication, identify the topics of interest and organise an in-person meeting. If necessary, the consultant can provide „remote“ intervention.

Employee Assistance Service is offered based on an agreement between the employer and Assessment Systems. The Service may be offered to all employees or a selected group. The program is paid for by an employer in flat-sum, depending on the number of employees enrolled in the program. For employees themselves the use of the Employee Assistance Program is free of charge.
