SME Employee Assistance Programme
Employee Assistance Programme
With the vision of promoting the well being of the staff so it will bring in work efficiency and sense of belongingness to the enterprise, the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)as a staff caring initiative is to assist employees and management to go through difficulties and problems they encounter in their work, human relationships, personal growth and family through a series of counseling services, including hotline, face-to-face interview, health talks, training workshop and other professional support. When there is a crisis in the enterprise, such as a disaster, accident or employee casualty, the service provider will provide psychological counseling and other means of support to relieve the negative impact of the incident.
As a Support to the SMEs
Every employee is a valuable asset and driving force of the company. Whether it is a large company or a small business, it should consider providing support services for employees. This is not only the social responsibility of the company, but also an initiative to improve the well beings of the employees, contributing to good performance and creating a pleasant and harmonious working environment. Due to limited resources, the number of employees in the SMEs may not meet the minimum requirements for purchasing Employee Assistance Programme in the market, or that may incur high costs. The Caring SME Alliance had launched the pilot scheme of Employee Assistance Programme in 2017, helping the members to purchase the scheme at a group buy discount rate.
