Did you know that, according to national averages, at least 20 percent of your employees are struggling with problems that affect their work performance — and your bottom line?
- 50 percent of all industrial accidents are linked to drug and alcohol abuse.
- About 52 million American households have financial concerns related to making ends meet.
- Depression affects 17 million people each year.
- Workplace violence causes 750 deaths each year.
An effective employee assistance program (EAP) helps resolve personal issues so employees can focus on positive aspects of their lives and their work.
Improved Employee Performance
When you hire employees they come with skills and experience — and personal issues. Employees distracted by personal or work-related problems can mean decreased productivity, higher absenteeism and increased potential for workplace accidents.
Increased Manager Performance
Human resource professionals, managers and supervisors often find that employee problems can take an overwhelming amount of time. When a manager can refer employees with personal or work-related problems to NuVantage, managers have more time to focus on work-related projects.
Better Organization Performance
When employees have a confidential, convenient and professional resource, they will use it, get the help they need, and be more productive and satisfied. When managers know they have a place they can refer employees, they will be able to focus on managing performance and productivity.
When employees and managers are focused on work, organizations benefit. Everyone wins.
