Employee Assistance

Why should your company have an EAP?

Facts:

  • Approximately 7 out of 10 workers feel that stress has made them less productive.
  • Between 10 and 23% of U.S. workers use drugs on the job.
  • Studies have estimated that up to 60% of visits to doctors are for the "worried well"
  • There is a 43% greater absenteeism for employees who use drugs and alcohol.
  • In a recent study at the McDonnell Douglas Corporation, there was a 60% reduction in turnover for employees who sought mental health services through EAP, as well as a substantial reduction in medical claims costs.

Solutions:

  • There is a 5:1 return on investment for EAP costs with 85% of the savings due to decreased medical claims. Many illnesses are stress related and can be appropriately assessed, and treated with an EAP program.
  • A 1990 study found for every EAP dollar spent there was a $5-$16 savings.
  • In recent studies, there were 13.95 fewer sick days after an EAP program was implemented. Average mental health and substance abuse claims costs were also reduced by 23%.
  • Studies show a 37% reduction in medical costs after even brief counseling interventions.
  • The Americans with Disability Act, The Drug Free Workplace, Drug Testing, Ethnic and Cultural Diversity, Workman's Compensation Claims, Violence in the Workplace, Sexual Harassment, and increased health care costs all impact on your company’s profitability.
