Q. QuestionWhat is an employee assistance programme (EAP)?

An employee assistance programme (EAP) is a confidential advice service for employees.

Access to an EAP can be provided as part of a benefits package and is designed to help employees deal with personal problems whether they are work-related or not, including financial issues or debt, family-life concerns like bereavements, child and dependent care, and matrimonial issues; legal rights; health and lifestyle concerns, and general worries or anxiety. Telephone advice, face to face counselling and online programmes can be included too.

EAPs are a useful tool for businesses to adopt as more and more of the UK's workforce are looking to their employer to provide wellbeing support.
