Employee Assistance Program
Assistance for Employers and Employees

It's been a tough year for employees. According to a recent Gallup survey, the pandemic has created record levels of worry, stress, and depression throughout the American workforce. Roughly seven in 10 employees are struggling or suffering, rather than thriving, in their overall lives. That results in a large portion of employees disengaging at work. This lack of engagement costs the global economy nearly 10% of GDP, in lost productivity each year (Gallup, 2021).

As a northern Michigan business owner/executive, you have the power to make things a bit better. Invest in your employees' well-being by providing CHS's Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to them. This cost-effective service is a voluntary, work-based program that offers free and confidential assessments, short-term counseling, referrals, and follow-up services to employees with personal and work-related problems.
