What Services are Provided in a Workplace EAP

When a company makes the decision to provide a confidential Employee Assistance Program, or workplace EAP, they’re deciding to invest in their employees–and in their company as well. Engaged, productive employees are what drive a company forward, but employees just can’t function at their best if they are dealing with personal issues. That’s why EAPs are helpful. They address employees’ problems before they interfere with their work, so that employees are happier and healthier, and companies can keep growing. 

Workplace EAP for mental health

With a Virtual workplace EAP employees and their employers can access these benefits from anywhere in the world. It also means that employees can be sure of the confidentiality of their services. No intermediaries, complicated screening processes, or anything else to get in the way of employees access to immediate, confidential care. 

Mental Health Counseling 

Mental Mindfulness

Stress is at an all time high in offices across the world, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. It’s no surprise that employees need mental health counseling and support. Many of their coworkers or those in their field may have been furloughed or completely laid off. Depending on the industry, they may be seeing a complete shutdown of their revenue sources.  This puts a lot of strain and worry onto staff. Plus, even if they’re still working, they may feel the pressure of taking on additional work and responsibilities. Likely, they’re working from home for the first time. Perhaps with their spouse, kids, pets and other life distractions make getting their work done more challenging. 

All this adds up to a whole lot of pressure. Without someone to talk to, to process emotions and deal with their issues, staff may turn to other ways of coping. Without healthy outlets, they may turn to excessive drinking, or drugs to distract themselves from their issues. While this can cause huge issues in staff’s personal and professional lives, it doesn’t have to end up that way. With confidential, free counseling available through an EAP, staff can find healthier ways to deal with their stress. And, with additional fun services staff will want to use (even when they’re not in crisis) your team can help prevent these issues from ever presenting themselves.

Staff can try out group or virtual yoga classes, guided meditation sessions, massage instruction and so much more here at Nivati. These sessions are a positive way to relieve stress, move your body, and quiet the mind. They create a healthy distraction and start building healthier coping mechanisms for staff.

Medical Advocacy

As it relates to Physical Wellness

We believe that a healthy body helps support a healthy mind. That’s why our services address physical health as well as mental health! Exercise and healthy nutrition help to balance the body’s chemistry, and can help counteract the effects of cortisol (the stress hormone). That’s why we have amazing personal trainers that offer online fitness sessions, plus nutritionists that can teach you how to adequately provide healthy nutrients to your body!  

Services Provided in a Workplace EAP

Employee Assistance

Life coaching and counseling services offered through a workplace EAP means that you always have someone to discuss your issues with. Sometimes all you need to do to feel better is talk out how you’re feeling. Having a therapist there to listen and give you guidance can be a game changer! 

That’s why Nivati offers both life coaching and counselling services. These trained and certified counsellors can help you with a range of different issues, and are ready to listen at a moment’s notice. 

Some things that having a life coach or counselor can help you with:

  • Increased self-esteem
  • Improved work-life balance
  • Less feelings of depressions
  • Lower stress levels
  • Less feelings of anxiety 
  • Improved communication
