The Chicago Mat Company Provides an Employee Assistance Program

Jim Buik - Friday, August 08, 2014

At the Roscoe Chicago Uniform Company we value our team members, therefore, we place a great deal of importance on their safety and well-being whether at work or at home.

One of the ways we ensure this is through an Employee Assistance Program or EAP. The Roscoe Company uses Perspectives, a Chicago-based company that provides services throughout the world. We feel confident to work with a program that was named “Best Places to Work in Illinois” several years including 2010, 2013 and 2014. This is so, because they invest in their employees which in turn invest in ours.

Perspectives EAP services are provided at no cost to our Team Members and offer a variety of services including WorkLife to assist with legal, financial and child, pet and elder care issues. Wellness Coaching to aid team members in staying healthy, fit and productive and general assistance in handling personal and workplace stress and other issues.

Below are just some of the most common issues that Perspectives helps people deal with everyday:

  • Addictions
  • Adoption
  • Anger Issues
  • Anxiety
  • Budgeting
  • College Planning
  • Coping with Change
  • Depression
  • Domestic Violence
  • Drug and Alcohol Addiction
  • Eating Disorders
  • Effective Communication
  • Family Issues
  • Grief
  • Housing and Real Estate
  • Leisure Travel Time
  • Marital and Couples Counseling
  • Parenting
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Retirement Planning
  • Stress
  • Summer Camps
  • Tutoring
  • Will Preparation

It is highly unlikely that a person will go through life without having to deal with a serious issue or problem and an EAP can give the proper assistance in helping cope with problems that may cause a negative impact on job performance. While striking a healthy work-life balance is ideal the uniform company understands some overlap may occur.

With Perspectives, and other similar EAPs, team members can rest easy in the fact that it is completely confidential and employers will not be notified when the service is used. Furthermore, workers can expect immediate assistance, 24/7, on-line, over the phone or in person. The possibilities are endless. A key takeaway from an EAP is early prevention. Team members can seek help during the early stages of a problem, instead of letting it build over time and possibly escalate into something more serious or a possibly violent situation. This is so crucial in our current society where oftentimes serious issues are externalized in an unsettling manner.

If your business does not currently provide an EAP, consider adding this service not only to the benefit of your employees, but also to your organization. It can reduce absenteeism and turnover and the cost of your health insurance plan. As a result, you’ll have a happier, healthier workplace. One last quote from Perspectives, “Ultimately, we aim to help employees with issues that impact life so that they can stay focused at work. A healthy workforce is a productive workforce. A productive workforce is more profitable.”
