Are you an employer in Alaska? Are you concerned about your employees’ productivity, health, and overall well-being? Are you also looking for an employer benefit plan that adds value without adding a lot of extra costs?
Consider an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) as an added value to the benefits plan you offer. An EAP is an employee benefit program typically offered in conjunction with a health insurance plan. EAPs are intended to help employees deal with personal problems that would otherwise have a negative impact on their work performance and well-being.
Wallace Insurance Group has been partnering with the Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) to offer comprehensive, competitive benefits plans that include an EAP. The third quarter summary of our EAP utilization highlights:
- total utilization of the EAP benefit has increased to 15%
- 3 cases were resolved within the EAP without having to refer employees to outside services
- the most popular items searched on the online guide were resources to help with tobacco, step-parenting, and credits & deductions.
Adding an Employee Assistance Program as an optional benefit in your employee benefits program can increase productivity and employee retention without increasing costs.
