Employee Assistance Program

Workplace wellbeing…

We all at sometime or other find ourselves in need of a little support in life. Happily, often when we do, the right support shows up in the form of a family member, friend, casual acquaintance or work colleague. Sometimes however, we might find that we seek support from a different vantage point. An opportunity to see ourself and our life from a ‘birds eye view’ so to speak.

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offered through Life Matters: Holistic Counselling (LM), is a confidential workplace service that is free-of-charge for employees. A work-based intervention program, an EAP is designed to enhance the mental, emotional and general wellbeing of all employees and also includes services for immediate family members.

Any work-life stressors such as family issues, relationship problems, career guidance, drug or addiction challenges, stress, burnout, depression and financial or legal concerns for example, can be dealt with through your EAP. It is conceived as a preventive measure to help you achieve and maintain a healthy work-life balance in a busy world.

EAP Hobart – How it Works

An EAP quite simply makes for happier, more motivated and therefore more productive people, which contributes positively to the overall wellbeing of any workplace. An EAP benefits employers, as it gives employees access to a dedicated professional space, where they can receive timely and confidential assistance to work through personal challenges.

The EAP through LM provides Hobart SMEs with an external counselling, resource and referral service to assist employees and their immediate family members through any difficulties they may be experiencing. All services provided are completely confidential, which means that while employers pay for the service, they have no insight into any employees specific use of the service.

The EAP is offered as part of every staff members general employment conditions. Businesses are provided with full information about the service and how to immediately connect employees to the service. For employees experiencing any kind of life stress that is affecting their work and/or personal quality of life, the LM EAP offers them direct contact to support provided by a professional Counsellor.
