As one of the leading health care systems in the nation, Atrium Health helps companies in as many as 28 states maintain a healthy, productive workforce through our comprehensive Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

If you are an Atrium Health employee, visit our teammate EAP page for more information or to access the portal.

When you offer your employees our EAP, they gain access to free, convenient and confidential assessments, counseling, and support services. These resources assist them in managing various work-life issues that can impact not only their personal well-being but also their work performance.

Professional mental health counselors within Atrium Health or one of our experienced affiliates help employees address general and work-related stress, marital and family issues, financial concerns, grief and loss, mental health challenges, drug and alcohol use disorders and more.

The business advantages of offering an EAP

It makes good business sense. Having an employee assistance program available for your employees to turn to in times of high stress has been proven to promote a healthy work environment, which in turn helps increase employee productivity.

EAPs have also been linked to lower rates of:

  • Absenteeism
  • Employee turnover
  • Employee grievances/complaints
  • Medical disability

When companies use an EAP, they also save money – money lost due to absenteeism or lapsed productivity that occurs when employees come into work but can’t focus fully on their job.

Consider this:

  • Today, 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. is struggling with a mental health disorder
  • Employees with substance use challenges are almost 4 times more likely to file a workers’ compensation claim and 2 times as likely to have absences of 8 days or more
  • At least 25% of a troubled employee's salary may be lost in absence, low productivity and medical expenses

When you choose Atrium Health's EAP, you get:

  • Increased workforce productivity: Employers who use an EAP had a 63% improvement in absenteeism 90 days after starting the program.
