With the marketplace continuing to become more competitive, employers are trying to provide good support policies for employees. These types of assistance programs are seen by employees as a helping hand offered by employers. That's why jobseekers, before accepting a job offer, look at the entire package of benefits that employers provide. To choose the best package, you need to know the details of employee assistance programs.
Let us discuss in detail what employee assistance programs have to offer and how these benefit packages can be structured well.
Purpose of these Support Programs
Expert counseling helps employees boost their on-the-job performance. Counselors can assist employees in dealing with issues that might prevent the latter from delivering their best work performance. In the absence of such support, employers are at high risk of losing a good number of employees. Through counseling services, employees are able to deal with their personal issues that can disturb their professional life.
In addition, such type of assistance programs also makes employees feel that they are held in good esteem by their employers.

Structuring of the Assistance Programs
Internal programs are handles by the in-house staff of the company. The program model is used by large companies that have the capability of achieving the economies of required scale. In an external services model, the company makes a contract with an external provider of EAP services. An integrated services system is operated by an in-house group which is in touch with an external services provider. In a consortia on the other hand, multiple trade associations and affinity groups join together to offer employees assistance services.
