Having access to employee assistance programs (EAPs) may be the answer to keeping workers happy, healthy and engaged, according to the findings of a new study on employer-sponsored support services.

While not all EAPs are the same, evidence published in the Journal of Workplace Behavioral Health pointed to the positive effects of EAPs on the wellbeing and overall life and job satisfaction of program participants.

Canadians who were given up to 12 hours of counselling per year under such programs showed higher engagement and improved mental health, as well as reduced presenteeism and work-related stress.
