    Premera Strategy

    Employee Assistance – Our Strategy

    Everyday concerns impact employees and company productivity. Mental health is an important component of healthy living, but an area where the health of our population is declining. The number of individuals diagnosed with mental health conditions such as depression or attention-deficit disorder is on the rise. So are prescriptions for medicines designed to combat these conditions, which include alcoholism, drug abuse and increased workplace absenteeism. These problems add hefty indirect costs for employers through decreased productivity.

    Providing employees with responsive service can encourage them to seek help for conditions before they worsen. Preventive services can help keep stressful life issues from affecting their job performance and developing into costly and/or detrimental health conditions.

    A Comprehensive EAP Committed to Quality Care

    An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential service provided by employers to help employees with personal difficulties such as emotional problems; substance abuse issues; relationship and family crises; and legal and financial worries. Getting employees the right help at the right time results in better focus at work, greater productivity and less absenteeism. ComPsych’s EAP addresses the many complexities of life with help for everyday issues such as:

    • Managing stress
    • Family/spousal relationships
    • A poor economy
    • Surviving grief and loss
    • Energizing a career
    • Dealing with an illness/trauma

    24/7 Toll-Free Access to Master’s and PhD-Degreed Clinicians

    Any time employees and their family members call ComPsych, they immediately speak with a counselor who holds either a master’s or a PhD degree in social work, psychology or behavioral health. Providing immediate care is our top priority, so callers never reach an answering service or automated telephone menu system.

    GuidanceResources® Online provides a confidential source of information and advice via the Internet. Employees and their family members can browse online content as a complement to telephone support. GuidanceResources Online provides instant guidance, information and helpful tools to address life’s challenges.
