Employee assistance and wellness programs

How do you reduce absenteeism and increase productivity in the workplace? It begins with employee wellness–to the core. Starting with awareness, Chamber plans offer a Health Risk Assessment, encouraging all plan participants to learn about their health risks. This aids in learning what habits and behaviours they may be able to adjust to improve their overall health–through an employee wellness program.

An employee assistance program delivers employees access to the support they need. For employees, this support can mean counselling services for addiction, nutrition, and other personal OR professional issues, providing confidentially outside of their employer’s HR department.

For management, this means designing effective communication strategies surrounding better management in general, employee mental health struggles, employee retention, and more.

An EAP program serves as a powerful integration into any HR department.
