An Employee Assistance Program or EAP for short, is a confidential support and coaching program for employees and in some cases their families, who are experiencing personal or professional difficulties that are impacting their health, wellbeing and/or work performance. EAP sessions can also coach employees to set and achieve personal and professional goals, improve interpersonal skills, upskill, better handle change, and develop leadership and management qualities.

EAP’s may provide support and guidance for a wide variety of concerns including (but not limited to) mental health, relationship, health and wellbeing, financial, vocational, addiction, grief and conflict issues. EAP services are covered by the employer and usually include a minimum of 3 individual sessions.

Research shows that 95% of employees who have engaged in EAP sessions are satisfied with the experience and are less likely to take absence leave. Productivity is also shown to increase, with an expected return on investment for employers of approximately 5-10 times that of the cost of sessions.

With more than 20% of the Australian adult population suffering a mental health illness at any given time, EAP support services can be a vital resource in detecting, preventing and managing mental health issues, while improving emotional wellbeing, work-life balance and stress management. Workplaces who prioritise employee wellbeing experience less staff turnover, improved job satisfaction and lower incidences of WorkCover claims.

EAP is not only useful when employees might have challenging or difficult circumstances, but can also greatly benefit individuals who want guidance and support improving their overall quality of life, interpersonal skills and workplace skills.

For example, our Exercise Physiologist can suggest and recommend the best exercises for improved posture, strength and fitness; our Psychologist might provide a manager with communication strategies or conflict resolution tools to enhance cohesion in their team; while our Dietitian might assist an employee struggling with a nutrient deficiency improve their energy levels and focus by recommending particular foods.

*Note a Nutritionist is not qualified to provide individual medical advice. Only Accredited Practising Dietitians are legally allowed to provide individual advice in Australia. (The Wellness Workshop’s dietitians are all Accredited Practising Dietitians)

Most EAP providers charge employers an annual retainer fee on top of the cost of individual sessions. This cost can be as much as $10,000+ per year (retainer/management fee) on top of $300 per hour for each session.

The Wellness Workshop’s EAP has a range of packages to suit all teams, including our Full Support Package where all employees benefit from at least 3 sessions per year starting from as little as 67c per employee per month for a team of 500 individuals, up to $1.66 per employee per month for a team of up to 15 individuals. This includes all team communications, monthly wellbeing newsletters and all admin and booking costs, plus 10% off any workshop booking. 

Alternatively you might prefer the Flex Support Package where you only pay for the sessions your team request ($199 per session) plus a small monthly subscription starting at $99 per month for workplaces up to 15 employees, increasing depending on the size of your team.

You can also ask our team about the Basic Support Package which carries a one off annual fee depending on the size of your team.

Absolutely. We encourage employees to find the person that they gel with best, and sometimes that might take more than one go. This is why we offer a range of health, support and performance services and a variety of allied health practitioners and coaches qualified to enhance every area of individual and organisational wellbeing.

Just like each individual is unique, so are their needs when it comes to EAP services. Most employees will benefit from at least 3 x sessions with a practitioner, with more complex issues such as mental illness or a personal tragedy (e.g. death of loved one) requiring more frequent sessions.

The minimum number of sessions an employee can request with The Wellness Workshop’s EAP is 3 x 1 hour sessions.
