Employee assistance can help promote the welfare of your employees, and as a result, improve productivity and a happy working environment in your business.

Let's face it, everyone goes through difficulties, experiences distress, and troubles. Crisis doesn't wait until we are ready to deal with it, but rather occur when we're least prepared. Challenges are an inevitable part of our everyday life. Just because your employees are smiling, doesn't mean that they don't experience these difficulties and worries.

It is in the best interest of the employer to provide employee assistance services to help them deal with whatever they are going through. Personal or professional issues can harm the best of workers, affecting their psyches and causing them a range of emotional and physical problems. Poor concentration, fatigue, a lack of motivation, poor immune response, and anger are just some of the symptoms they may be experiencing.

Some of the problems that could be causing trouble in the lives of your employees could include family problems, substance abuse, performance problems, depression, anger management issues, domestic violence, stress, anxiety, divorce, parenting problems and issues with their self-esteem.

Without employee assistance, your company may be in danger. Research has shown the importance of happy, healthy workers on a company's productivity and profitability. It is important to appreciate the impact of these issues on an employees ability to be productive and cope with pressures at work as well.

Employee assistance programs can help take your company to the next level by empowering your employees with suitable coping, communication and behavioural skills. It will help them with human growth and enjoying a better life at work and at home.

While stress is a normal part of our modern, everyday lives, it can also have dramatic side effects. Chronic stress can lead to behavioral issues, such as drug abuse that can harm relationships. However, most commonly, chronic stress can affect a person's physical health in a number of ways. Many people avoid asking for help in coping with stress management, accepting it as a common hazard of today's fast-paced life.

Yes, at some point everyone suffers from challenges with stress management, but if at any point in time you feel like you have trouble handling it, it is time to get help. Signs that you are not coping with stress management includes a change in your sleeping or eating habits, feeling physically unwell (headaches, ulcers, frequent colds and flu), reduced productivity and decreased pleasure in activities you enjoyed before.

Stress is common when dealing with life changes or situations such as job losses, getting married, breakups or divorces, discrimination, parenting, moving house, death of a pet or loved one, being diagnosed with a serious medical condition.  

Therapy can help you to better deal with stress management issues. Negative moods reduce the quality of several aspects of our lives, including productivity and interpersonal relationships. Through cognitive restructuring, negative thoughts can be challenged and rescripted to help you create a more positive mindset.

Stress can often cloud the validity of our interpretations of certain events and circumstances, and cognitive restructuring challenges those assumptions. In the case of invalid interpretations, the way we think about situations naturally changes, which has a positive effect on our moods and ability to handle stress better.
