Benefits of having an EFAP from FSEAP
Leading organizations know that human resources are their most valuable asset. In order for an organization to have a winning edge in today's marketplace, employees must be performing at their best. Unfortunately, studies show that an estimated 20% of employees have concerns affecting their job performance.
Fewer Attendance Problems. As many as 30% of all unscheduled absences are related to personal and family concerns, such as relationship difficulties, childcare issues, and mental-health problems. When employees utilize FSEAP to address such issues, your organization can significantly improve employees' attendance rates.
Fewer Injuries and Accidents. Employees with personal problems are often preoccupied and distracted, increasing their risk of accident and injury. By integrating FSEAP into your prevention efforts, your organization can significantly lower your rate of accidents and injuries.
Increased Employee Productivity. By helping employees to resolve personal and family problems before they impact their work performance, your organization can help to preserve your employees' productivity.
Increased Employee Loyalty and Retention. Finally, the establishment of an EFAP with FSEAP is a tangible demonstration of care and respect by an employer towards its staff. Making current and prospective employees aware of this employee benefit can assist your organization to better recruit and retain your employees.
