HealthCare EAP

HealthCare EAP is designed to specifically address unique issues facing personnel in the healthcare industry. These include hospital staff, nurses, doctors, aides, technicians, and support staff. We offer the most comprehensive benefit package available, and address issues that healthcare workers face both on and off the job. 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.

This Resource Center discusses both the most common types of violence and offers tools and strategies for prevention.

patient-and-family-healthcare

Rarely do healthcare workers deal with patients in a vacuum. Family members, friends, and significant others play an important part in the care continuum and the patient’s healing process. Dealing with difficult, demanding, or disruptive family members can pose challenges. But even in cooperative and supportive situations, it can be stressful to have to convey bad, sad, or unwelcome news or to discuss sensitive or touchy topics with the patient’s support network. This Resource Center addresses many common challenges that healthcare workers can face when dealing with a patient’s family members.

  • Dealing with Difficult Patients
  • Family Challenges
  • Tackling Tough Topics: – Communicating Bad or Sad News – Death, Dying & End of Life Issues – Substance Abuse – Domestic Violence – Suicide – Touchy Topics

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.” ”

Our utilization is up over our previous EAP – largely due to the excellent educational programs offered through ESI.

“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!”

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.”
