An Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is a benefits package to help employees deal with personal problems that might have a negative impact on their work performance, health, and well-being.
Providing an EAP for your staff may:
Increase Staff Productivity
If your staff are facing problems, it can affect their concentration at work and can result in lower productivity time off work.
Prevent small issues growing into big ones
Dealing with problems when they arise can prevent small problems growing into significant ones, which can lead to prolonged absenteeism.
Reduce staff turnover & absence
Having access to a confidential Helpline staffed by people who understand the world of retail helps people to address their problems more effectively and may help to improve staff productivity and morale.
When your staff are able to discuss their issues, they are able to be engaged, and therefore happier in their job. There are also fundraisers like Retail Trust Week and Treks & Challenges in which your staff can take part in a positive way for Retail Trust.
Call the Retail Trust Helpline on 0808 801 0808 about any issues that you may be experiencing.
