Employee Assistance Programme

The Life & Progress – Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

Life & Progress has earned a reputation for providing only the very best of EAP and psychological health services.  Our EAP proposition is for providing a proactive service rather than a reactive service.  Traditional EAPs have tended to focus on problems and negative issues, reacting to events whereas the Life & Progress-EAP is an interventional management tool with a focus on prevention, education and improvement.

Added Value

The Life & Progress-EAP has an intrinsic value for tackling stress in the workplace, decreasing employee absence and increasing retention as well as to assist you to meet your duty of care obligations. We add further value by ensuring that all our EAP services are fully account managed, integrated and are adopted by line-managers, team leaders and supervisors are a proactive and indeed effective management tool.

EAPs have time and time again demonstrated the benefit of prevention over cure, thereby saving Employers’ time and money that can be lost through absence, mistakes and lack of productivity.
