Employee Assistance

CPConsulting’s tailored Employee Assistance Programs enhance staff engagement by assisting them to manage issues that impact on their emotional wellbeing, thereby reducing the cost of absenteeism and presenteeism.

Mental health disorders are a costly health disability for business and the leading cause of sickness absence and long-term work incapacity in Australia, costing businesses an estimated $12.3 billion per year.

An effective Employee Assistance Program (EAP) can reduce the risk of employees suffering in silence and the right support can mean the difference between employees thriving rather than just surviving. An effective EAP is critical ingredient in a mentally healthy workplace, allowing staff to access timely, appropriate, confidential counselling and get the help they need.

CPConsulting offers a range of EAP packages to suit the needs and size of the organization and the unique needs and circumstances of each employee. We specialise in EAPs for small to medium organisations, and understand the need to balance care for the employee with the financial constraints that small to medium businesses experience.  Employees can talk confidentially (by phone or face-to-face) with a CPConsulting psychologist. Our clients choose to nominate a set number of counselling sessions that they will provide for their staff (typically 1, 3 or 5 sessions per year), whilst other organisations prefer to nominate the number of sessions on a case-by-case basis. Rest assured, a well-run EAP program will deliver a positive return on investment. For example, a Canadian study of over 60,000 cases found that employee absenteeism was reduced from an average of 2.37 days to only 0.91 days after accessing EAP.
