Higher Education EAP

Higher Ed EAP is designed specifically for educators. We offer twice the number of solutions for personal problems and a targeted menu of benefits and resources addressing the unique professional issues they face. Our Peak Performance Benefits are redefining the EAP. We start with all the traditional EAP counseling services designed to address significant life problems and we add Work/Life benefits to address the everyday problems involved in juggling work and family. But that’s not all. We go one step further to deliver benefits designed to enhance quality of life not just for your employees and their family members, but for managers and supervisors, too. And we help all employees to achieve their Peak Performance best through training, coaching and wellness. Check the topics below to learn more.

This can be a very stressful life transition, coupled with academic pressures, establishing a new social network, and the ongoing challenges inherent in the late teen/early adult years.

We’ve compiled resources for some of the most common student problems and issues.

ESI is extremely easy for our employees to work with, too. The staff at ESI is caring and compassionate.

Cattaraugus-Allegany-Erie-Wyoming BOCES

“ESI has always responded to the needs of the Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES in a prompt and professional manner. The employee assistance program has been an asset to our management personnel in dealing with sensitive employee issues that impact work performance. It also has been a vital resource to our employees when they needed a place to turn for assistance with a wide range of personal difficulties.”

Whirley Industries

“At Whirley-DrinkWorks!, we feel that ESI clearly sets the standard for a “business partner.”

Our utilization rate for the Employee Assistance Program is high across all categories of services and we attribute that to the excellent services and reputation ESI has established with our TeamMates. ESI exceeds expectation through their service, professionalism, training and care they take with each individual who reaches out for assistance.

ESI continues to go above and beyond by offering flexible schedules to allow our TeamMates to get help at any time. They also provide valuable service to our supervisors and management staff going above and beyond normal training. Our organization is very satisfied and would recommend ESI based off of their professionalism and “people focus.” ”

EYP Architecture & Engineering, P.C.

“As the Director of Human Resources, I was looking for a comprehensive EAP program to meet our diverse needs. For more than two years now, ESI has exceeded our expectations by providing personalized and effective services.

Our utilization is up over our previous EAP – largely due to the excellent educational programs offered through ESI. Our employees are extremely pleased by the wide range of services offered and feedback continues to be positive. All matters are handled in a capable and confidential manner. I consider ESI to be a true leader in Employee Assistance Programs.”

Academic Travel Abroad, Inc.

“I have been very impressed by the quality and variety of services provided by ESI. They span much more than the traditional counseling services provided by an EAP, and they seem to be adding at least one or two new services each year. Our employees are one call away from an answer to a weight loss question, a pet care issue or a legal concern.”

Rochester Midland Corporation

“Rochester Midland Corporation has worked with ESI since 2001. We have always received immediate and appropriate response when we have needed their services. Our employees have been impressed with the level of service they receive when they are in need. The ESI Personal Development online training programs are an excellent benefit and are often “required” training for specific subject matter. The website is easy to navigate and full of useful information for both employees and their families.

The counseling staff is knowledgeable and compassionate. They have always handled employee situations in a highly confidential manner. Thank you ESI!”

Rochester Midland Corporation

Freedom Credit Union

Some of the comments heard by employees are: I don’t know what we would have done if we didn’t have them to turn to My daughter is doing so much better at home and at school thanks to the assistance I received from our EAP. They really made me feel comfortable and like I was being heard and, What a wonderful benefit, thank you so much for providing this!” Our employees have had nothing but good things to say about their experiences with ESI.

ESI is always responsive and helpful whether to our employees calls, my requests, or even during robbery response/counseling. In fact we are about to utilize their services for our mandatory on-site Anti-Sexual Harassment Training. Their monthly newsletters are packed with important information relative to their services and serve as a reminder to our employees that ESI is just a phone call away.”

Freedom Credit Union

The Bank of Greene County

“The Bank of Greene County has been using the EAP services of ESI since 2005. We couldn’t be happier. Not only are there services for our employees but also for us, the employer. We have used the Management Academy for our management team training and have used the Administrative Referral program to assist specific employees that we send or refer to the program for assistance in an area that they may be struggling with. Pre-employment screening is also offered at a very reduced price. The EAP has been very well received by our employees – there is the usual assistance with personal matters, family issues including child or elder care, work-related matters handled on a confidential basis and, of course, financial information including debt counseling. This is more than just an EAP. Plus the cost has been kept low and the results are high!! We give them a 5 star rating!!!”

Harrington Industrial Plastics

“Our utilization speaks for itself – ESI is here to stay. When our renewal comes up, it is simply a benefit our company cannot do away with. The key is in implementation and consistent awareness to our employees. ESI makes this very simple with a smooth and accommodating roll out program, monthly newsletters and innovative new services. Good service is out there but great EAP programs begin with ESI Employee Assistance Group.”
