“Our employees at Mestek have been so pleased with the offerings ESI provides. From administrative referrals to their online trainings, we find our level of participation with all the services available is above average, and especially when employees face serious life issues.
I have and will continue to recommend ESI as a premier provider of programs for all employee populations.”
“We have worked with ESI for over 10 years and developed a great working relationship. Our employees appreciate the many resources available to them to navigate personal issues. Supervisors utilize the professional training courses offered.
We have found the administrative referral process very valuable for both employees and supervisors. When working through an administrative referral ESI staff is responsive, supportive, knowledgeable and keeps the HR staff informed throughout the process.”
“I have been in Human Resources management for over thirty (30) years. I am so pleased to have partnered with ESI HealthCare EAP to be able to offer the most professional and comprehensive employee assistance program to our staff. This company and the service they consistently provide are unmatched in the industry. ESI is the best – there simply is no comparison.”
“ESI has been the Employee Assistance provider for SIGNET Electronic Systems, Inc. for the past 10 years. Our employees have come to trust and rely on ESI to deliver quality care and resources in a confidential and professional manner. Each year we have seen our utilization rate continue to climb, to a rate of almost 43% last year. Like all companies, some of our employees will face difficult problems or circumstances in the coming year and not know where to turn. We recommend ESI to our team members without hesitation, knowing they can find assistance 24/7/365, whatever the issue .”
“I am proud to consider ESI Employee Assistance Group an extension of my Human Resources department. With the diverse nature of employees within a municipal environment, ESI demonstrates a deep understanding of the work that we perform as well as a genuine care for our employees’ needs both personally and professionally. The suite of services that ESI provides is second to none, and available to employees in the format that they are most comfortable with – online, over the phone, or face to face. I regularly advise our employees that whenever they come across an issue – large or small – that they need to address and don’t know where to start, they can’t go wrong with their first step being a phone call or online visit to ESI.”
“We’ve developed a great partnership with ESI Employee Assistance Group over the years. They’re extremely responsive, always willing to go the extra mile and have rolled out several recent benefits that are well-received by our employees, including college tuition discounts and free personal and professional coaching. I would recommend them to anyone, especially those looking for a more personal EAP program.”
“Here at MassTech, we recently switched our Employee Assistance Program over to ESI Employee Assistance Group, and we could not be more pleased. One of the things we value most about ESI is how proactive they are with our employees. Employees appreciate getting emails updating them on all that ESI has to offer.
Thank you for always being there when we have questions or need support. We look very forward to continuing our relationship with ESI!”
“The Summit Federal Credit Union has worked with ESI since 1984 and I am extremely impressed with the level of support, responsiveness, expertise and overall service provided to the credit union and to our employees. With their guidance and partnership, we have successfully implemented, or plan to implement, solutions that will continue to make a positive impact on our organizational culture. ESI is extremely easy for our employees to work with, too. The staff at ESI is caring and compassionate. They have always handled employee situations on a priority basis and in a highly confidential manner. I am very pleased to be working with ESI. ”
