  • Title: What is an EAP
    Descriptive info: More About Us.. F.. A.. Q.. What is an EAP.. What is Employee Assistance?.. Employee Assistance is the work organisation's resource that utilises specific core technologies to enhance employee and workplace effectiveness through prevention, identification, and resolution of personal and productivity issues.. What is an employee assistance programme (EAP)?.. An employee assistance programme (EAP) is a worksite-based program designed to assist (1) work organisations in addressing productivity issues and (2) "employee clients" in identifying and resolving personal concerns, including, but not limited to, health, marital, family, financial, alcohol, drug, legal, emotional, stress, or other personal issues that may affect job performance.. EAP Core Technology.. The employee assistance programme Core Technology (EAP Core Technology) represents the essential components of the employee assistance profession.. These components combine to create a unique approach to addressing work organisation productivity issues and "employee client" personal concerns affecting job performance and ability to perform on the job.. The EAP Core Technology consists of the following:.. (1) Consultation with, training of, and assistance to, work organisation leadership (managers, supervisors, and union stewards) seeking to manage the troubled employee, enhance the work environment, and improve employee job performance, and outreach to, and education of, employees and their family members about availability of EAP services;.. (2) Confidential and timely problem identification/assessment services for employee clients with personal concerns that may affect job performance;.. (3) Use of constructive confrontation, motivation, and short-term intervention with employee clients to address problems that affect job performance;.. (4) Referral of employee clients for diagnosis, treatment, and assistance, plus case monitoring and follow-up services;.. (5) Consultation to work organisations in establishing and maintaining effective relations with treatment and other service providers and in managing provider contracts;.. (6) Consultation to work organisations to encourage availability of, and employee access to, health benefits covering medical and behavioural problems, including but not limited to alcoholism, drug abuse, and mental health and emotional disorders; and..  ...   information.. External Model.. External EAP services are provided by an outside service provider on a contractual basis.. External EAP services usually provide training, education and promotion during the launch of the service to encourage the use of the EAP service.. The service would provide mental health support confidentially to employees.. Direct line assess is essential allowing employee to make contact with the EAP directly, ensuring confidentiality.. External services provide counselling, information, and support delivered by mental health professionals, usually based off site of the organisation.. Internal/External Combination Model.. There may be an Internal Provider, with external professionals carrying out some of the functions on a contractual basis.. Consortium Model.. Several small employers join together to establish a shared EAP or jointly contract with an external provider.. How do I know which to choose?.. A service delivery model is chosen which best reflects organisational and employee needs.. Factors to be considered include size and diversity of client population, number and location of sites, budget and existing internal resources.. All EAPs, while having common core elements, should be tailored to meed the needs of the particular organisation using the EAP.. Determining the needs of the company or organisation is very important, as it will inform the programme planning and development and the choice of EAP model.. Before an EAP is introduced there needs to be a clear analysis of the EAP aims and objectives; the way the EAP should be designed to meet those objectives; and how the objectives will be monitored.. Professional guidance on the type of model which best suites any organisation is available from EAPA Irl, and independent EAP professionals.. Do your own research - find out from companies with EAPs how their particular model works for them.. Please also refer to the Ireland Standards of Practice and Professional Guidelines available in the members area.. Click here.. for a list of providers registered with EAPA Irl..
