How EAPs have helped Employees during Lockdown

Updated: Aug 10



Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) have really come into their own during the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown.


An EAP is a relatively low-cost benefit that has allowed employees (and their dependants) to seek professional help, 24 hours-a day, on a whole host of problems including;

  • Work-Related Issues (e.g furlough, redundancy)

  • Relationship and Family Matters (e.g. separation and eldercare)

  • Health & Safety Concerns (e.g. stress, depression, grief & loss)

  • Financial and Legal Topics (e.g. budgeting, managing debt)

During lockdown, counselling services have been accessed by phone, email, video call, live text chat, apps and online portals, helping maintain the mental health of workforces across the UK.


If you're looking to include this low-cost, highly-valued benefit in your health and wellbeing strategy, please speak to one of our experienced staff today on 01666 860086 or complete our contact form.
