as a corporate benefit
SUPPORT AS BENEFIT
We provide corporate clients with comprehensive professional advice for their employees. As part of the benefit, we help employees manage difficult life situations or crises.
PROFESSIONALLY AND ETHICALLY
The support is provided by qualified professionals in the fields of psychology, law, and finance. We provide our services strictly according to professional standards and ethical values.
DISCREET AND FREE
Expert advice is provided discreetly and anonymously over the phone, by email, or online. The advice is paid for by the employer and is completely free for users.
FOR THE EMPLOYER
The Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is a corporate benefit which helps employees deal with difficult life situations that could have an adverse impact on their work performance, health, and wellbeing. Comprehensive professional advice in the fields of psychology, law, and finance is provided on the principle of a discreet and anonymous assistance service, which is implemented by email, telephone, or an online platform. The employees receive support and assistance at the moment when they really need it.
One of the main advantages is that it is beneficial not only for employees but also for employers. It protects companies’ employees and significantly reduces the costs associated with the short-term or long-term impacts of these negative phenomena.
- exclusive employer branding
- attractiveness for potential employees
- reduction of staff turnover
- increased satisfaction and loyalty
- support for employee motivation and performance
- reduction of conflicts and negative phenomena in the workplace
WHAT RESEARCH SAYS
Abroad, EAP Employee Assistance Programmes are popular tools which reduce the costs of companies effectively. This is evidenced by a steady increase in their use, as well as by specialized studies and research.
The main causes of sick leave include personal (21%) and family problems (24%).

SATISFACTION AND PRODUCTIVITY
Research studies confirm the connection between employees’ satisfaction and productivity, with satisfied employees being 13% more productive. Another important aspect is significantly lower sickness rates and staff turnover.

STRESS AT WORK
