CuraLinc Healthcare's EAP Delivers Measurable Impact on Employee Health, Wellbeing and Productivity
Case Study from CuraLinc Provides Insight into EAP-Driven Outcomes for Employee Depression, Absenteeism, Productivity and Alcohol Abuse
CHICAGO - March 16, 2021 - PRLog -- To most employers, the value of an employee assistance program (EAP) is based on the understanding that employees with unresolved mental health, substance use, and emotional well-being concerns often have troubles in their professional and personal lives that ultimately impact the organization's bottom line. Historically, EAP providers have used a variety of metrics to illustrate their ability to resolve or mitigate these concerns, such as employee utilization, referrals to external resources, satisfaction surveys or website usage.
