The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is included with most medical plan offerings from AdvanStaff HR. Clients not using AdvanStaff HR’s medical program can still offer the EAP to employees and families at a very affordable cost.
The EAP program also includes employer benefits for group/worksite counseling and other emotional wellness programs that help large groups deal with grief, shock, and other emotional distresses.
Contact your dedicated Benefit Specialist to discuss employer-level group services.
An Example: We have used the Behavioral Health Options EAP internally at AdvanStaff HR as we grieved with the loss of one of our own internal staff members. Having a trained grievance counselor in our office was a very beneficial service and was provided at no charge.
