Why EAP?

Lochaber Hope provides short term professional counselling and other forms of professional support to your employees.

Both personal and work-related issues can affect performance at work and attendance. Research indicates that 60% of issues affecting performance at work are in fact personal issues with the remaining 40% being work-related.

Long-term absence is a serious and expensive issue for employers. Once an employee has been absent for six weeks, the chances of a return to work are halved, with feelings of isolation, depression and anxiety about going back often proving more debilitating than the original reason for absence.

Over half of all absent employees have been off work for more than six weeks.

Benefits of EAP include:

  • Improved productivity and workplace efficiency.
  • Reduction in sickness absence of 25-50%.
  • Decreased work-related accidents.
  • Less absenteeism and staff turnover.
  • Reduces grievances.
  • Decreases recruitment and increases staff retention.
