Susan B. Jacobson, L.M.H.C., P. A., Palm Beach, Corporate Counseling Services. For Employees or Management. -
Individual or Group Sessions Are Available.
Workplace Counseling is a service that is valued by employees. It has the potential for reducing sickness absence, and takes pressure off managers by dealing with difficult staff or situations.
In addition, Workplace Counseling is often viewed by employers as an insurance policy against the threat of compensation claims made by employees exposed to work-related stress. I offer these services:
Benefits For Employees
An employee assistance program (EAP) is an employee benefit program that assists employees with personal problems and/or work-related problems that may impact their job performance, health, mental and emotional well-being.
EAPs generally offer free and confidential assessments, short-term counseling, referrals, and follow-up services for employees and their household members.
EAP counselors also work in a consultative role with managers and supervisors to address employee and organizational challenges and needs. Many corporations, academic institution and/or government agencies are active in helping organizations prevent and cope with workplace violence, trauma, and other emergency response situations.
There is a variety of support programs offered for employees.
Even though EAPs are mainly aimed at work-related problems, there are a variety of programs that can assist with problems outside of the workplace. EAPs have grown over the years, and are more desirable economically and socially.
Benefits For Management
Some studies indicate that offering EAPs may result in various benefits for managers, including lower medical costs, reduced turnover and absenteeism, and higher employee productivity.
Many corporations agree that the consistency of positive findings across their studies in different service sectors indicate many positive effect of EAP programs,
EAPs may also provide other services to employers, such as supervisory consultations, support to troubled work teams, training and education programs, and critical incident services.
Most managers indicate that counseling helps them to overcome both short and long-termed problem. That these managers described themselves as learning something new and useful about themselves as a result of counseling..

Benefits For Business Owners
Early formation, EAPs have been traced back to the late 1930s, and were formed out of programs that dealt with occupational alcoholism. During a time when drinking on the job was the norm, people began to notice the effects it had on job performance and productivity.
This became a major issue for industrial jobs and would become the main focus for correction with job-based alcoholism programs. By 1939, the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) movement had begun to spread throughout the Midwestern and Northeastern United States. People in "recovery" began to eagerly share their experiences with other workers.
This would be the start of the EAP movement. Businesses also started to see the effectiveness of the programs through the rehabilitation of their workers and the rise of productivity. These improvements sparked the thought of what other types of problems this program could address.
The benefits for business owners who provide counseling services to both employees and management have established business benefits, including increased productivity of employees (termed "presenteeism") and decreased absenteeism.
