Employee Family Assistance Programs
Successful business owners and managers
understand the importance of having a workforce
that is healthy and focused.
However, did you know that personal problems impact job performance for 20 percent of workers at any given time and account for 30 percent of all absenteeism?
Troubled employees work at 50-70% of their potential. Absenteeism and low productivity affect the bottom line reducing profits.
With the competitive market place in Saskatchewan today, finding and keeping quality employees can be difficult. Training new employees is time consuming and expensive.
Investing in your present quality employees is far more cost-effective than going through the process and expense of replacement.
An Employee and Family Assistance Program with Penney Murphy & Associates will enhance employee and workplace effectiveness through prevention, identification and resolution of personal and professional issues.
Penney Murphy & Associates’ EFAP services assist employees and/or their family members in identifying and resolving personal concerns, including but not limited to marital, family, alcohol, drug, financial, legal, emotional, stress, or other personal issues that may affect health, wellness, job performance and job satisfaction.
Early intervention through confidential short-term counseling, referral and follow-up often returns troubled employees to full productivity and precludes costly medical and workers comp claims.
Your business is unique. This is what makes you successful.
In considering an EFAP, your company has its own specific needs. Why would you want an old fashioned and restrictive “cookie cutter” or a one size fits all approach to your EFAP?
Think about the past 25 years in terms of all of the technological advances that have occurred. Would you want to use a cell phone or a computer that was designed 25 years old? Likely not.
Just as technology has changed, so too have EFAP’s …at least at Penney Murphy & Associates. This is Today’s Counselling & EFAP.
At Penney Murphy & Associates, we take pride in the fact that we can custom design an EFAP program that specifically meets your organization’s needs. We know that one size doesn’t fit all.
And unlike the EFAP’s offered by national companies, we are proud to be part of the Saskatoon and Saskatchewan community. As a result, we are fully able to respond immediately in the event of a crisis or emergency.
We live here, we work here and we think that’s important.
We understand the culture of Saskatoon and Saskatchewan. We will work closely with your business and your employees through the provision of excellent customer service, because when you succeed…we succeed.
We are different than other Counselling agencies…and we take pride in that fact. The biggest difference (and the most important) you will notice is the quality of our professional services and our philosophy.
We have strict hiring requirements for our Counselling staff in terms of required education and experience.
Unlike other Counselling companies, it is a requirement of employment at Penney Murphy & Associates that all Counsellors receive supervision, regardless of experience.
Supervision is provided by an Accredited External Supervisor at the company’s expense and ensures that all Clinicians are continually improving their skills, resulting in an excellent product in terms of our clients and customer service.
At Penney Murphy & Associates, an EFAP is so much more than simply crisis counselling. Our philosophy is that an EFAP is an opportunity for personal growth, for empowerment, for discovering and building on strengths.
With our EFAP’s, your employees are encouraged to access services not only find solutions for pressing personal and/or professional issues, but also to be proactive, to learn new skills to assist with their professional development (better communication, leadership skills, dealing with difficult people, etc.).
The EFAP can be of tremendous value to your employees in terms of gaining self-confidence, dealing with an aging parent, learning to manage stress, or becoming the best person they can be.
In addition to the excellent counseling services included in an EFAP with Penney Murphy & Associates, your company will receive additional benefits and services at no extra cost to ensure that you are realizing tremendous value for your money.
With Penney Murphy & Associates you have choices in terms of your EFAP.
You can include your entire staff, and/or their family members in your EFAP…or just a select group of employees.
You can choose the number of counselling sessions you would like to offer to your group.
You can choose to cover the entire cost of the EFAP or have your employees share in the cost.
You can choose to pay for only the sessions your employees use or to make budgeting a bit easier there is the option of paying a monthly retainer fee ($ per employee per month). The important thing to remember is that an EFAP isn’t expensive and you will see a great return on your investment.
