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.”

“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.”
Income Research + Management
“We’ve developed a great partnership with ESI Employee Assistance Group over the years.

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.

Thank you for always being there when we have questions or need support. We look very forward to continuing our relationship with ESI!”
