Offering more than just employee counseling, our comprehensive EAP benefit plan integrates a wide range of work/life services. These services help employees reduce the amount of lost work time spent searching for personal life resources while on the job and lost work time due to absence for personal reasons.

- “One in every four American workers feels seriously distressed by their personal financial situation with 30%-80% of these workers worrying about personal finances and dealing with financial issues instead of working”
(Garman, T.T., Junk, V.S., Kim, J., O’Neill, B.J., Prochaseka-Cue, K., et at. . Financial Distress Among American Workers-Final Report).
- “62% of employed caregivers changed daily schedule, went in late, left early, or took time off during work”
(Hunt, G. 2004, Caregiving and the Workplace).
- “Nearly 60% of those caring for an adult over the age of 50 are working; the majority of those work full-time”
(MetLife Mature Market Institute & National Alliance for Caregiving, 2006).
