Supporting Your Employees Achilles Heel

The True Value of an Effective EAP Service Provider

At any given time there are some 10.9% or some 29.6 million people were uninsured. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), about 49 percent of Americans, about 156,199,800 Americans, receive employer sponsored healthcare. 44 million Americans were underinsured in 2018, a 50% increase in 8 years.

The trauma, uncertainty and loss of dignity adds to an already burdensome situation, let alone change in the social and cultural dynamics of any relationship in a family  and its social community. Many turn to psychiatrists for help, others seek the support of Wellness and or Spiritual counsel.

Reports by the National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health by providing access to biomedical and genomic information. What does that mean for you? This associations work shed slight on new knowledge about how our bodies, mind and multitude of connectors and carriers of signals allow us to function. You can take a little knowledge or take a deep dive and learn what makes you tick.

To be sure then we know that if you remove the ability for someone to learn, to be part of the process of what they learn and contribute to the community that they are a part of, our minds begin to shut down.

By providing alternative supplemental services that enable your employees to find a non-stigmatized social or cultural solution in supporting them at a time in their lives that is unraveling while addressing life’s changes is both financial prudent and intellectually astute. From a humanitarian perspective check that box, and strategic positioning for the intangible value that such support provides.
