EAP Providers That Offer Wellness Corporate Solutions
Employers tend to associate Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) with providing counseling and support to employees to overcome personal issues but you may not know that many EAPs also provide wellness corporate solutions too!
We often hear from organizations looking for assistance with worksite wellness programs and didn't know their employee assistance program EAP providers offered wellness corporate solutions. Unfortunately, some EAP providers are missing out on potential revenue by neglecting to promote their wellness solutions.
Worksite wellness programs and EAPs work hand-in-hand since wellness programs often prevent issues that EAPs frequently cover, and reduce those issues before they become large-scale problems. EAPs are always great tools for maintaining a healthy employee population. but this is especially true when their full potential is achieved through wellness.
