Employee Assistance Programs for Businesses

Montefiore Nyack Hospital’s Employee Assistance Program assists Rockland County businesses, large and small, by providing a cost effective program that offers professional, confidential services to help employees at all levels get back on track, while functioning as an organizational resource for management.

When personal problems undermine an employee’s job performance, traditional supervisory and managerial efforts seldom prove effective. Instead, job performance usually continues to decline and managers find increasing amounts of their time consumed in monitoring and counseling the troubled employee. Personal problems contributing to poor job performance are usually complex and multi-faceted. They often include issues that few supervisors are trained to handle – complicated issues like:

  • Family and Marital Concerns
  • Emotional Difficulties
  • Financial or Legal Troubles
  • Drug or Alcohol Problems

Besides reducing costs associated with employees’ personal problems, Montefiore Nyack Hospital’s Employee Assistance Program provides training for managers and supervisors to help them develop skills and confidence in resolving employee performance issues. The program also offers additional training modules for management and staff on issues such as sexual harassment, promoting a drug-free workplace, stress management, parenting, and many other human resource development topics.

The Employee Assistance Program enhances existing benefit programs and demonstrates a company’s commitment to, and concern for, its employees’ well being. Dollar for dollar, Montefiore Nyack Hospital’s Employee Assistance Program is one of the best investments an organization can make. Having a program like this one can help your organization contain costs in many important ways, including:

  • Reduced Absenteeism and Tardiness
  • Lower Health Care and Compensation Costs
  • Improved Morale and Lower Turnover Rates
  • Increased Safety, Security, and Productivity
  • Fewer EEOC Claims
  • Better Personnel Management and Quality Control
  • Improved Union/Management Relations
