Why You Should Invest in an EAP

Twenty-five percent or more of a troubled employee's salary may be lost in absence, low productivity and medical expenses. Consider these statistics:

  • Alcoholism causes 500 million lost workdays each year
  • Employees who use drugs are 2.5 times more likely to have absences of eight days or more, and are three times more likely to be late for work
  • Employees with substance abuse problems are 3.6 times more likely to file a worker’s compensation claim

Benefit of an EAP

An EAP can assist employees in addressing personal and professional issues so they can return to a higher level of productivity. When companies utilize an EAP, employers may save from $5 to $16 for every dollar they invest.
