Health & Wellbeing Programs

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

Our Employee Assistance Program is a work‐based intervention program designed to enhance the emotional, mental and general psychological wellbeing of all employees and includes services for immediate family members. Similar programs are offered to other co-workers on a country-by-country basis, sometimes as part of medical insurance services.

The aim is to provide preventive and proactive interventions for the early detection, identification and/or resolution of both work and personal problems that may adversely affect performance and wellbeing. These problems and issues may include, but are not limited to, relationships, health, trauma, substance abuse, gambling and other addictions, financial problems, depression, anxiety disorders, and psychiatric disorders, communication problems, legal and coping with change.
