Supervisory Referral

This small but powerful service can help your employees whose performance may be suffering due to personal challenges or mental health issues. Roughly three in four employees indicate they have struggled with at least one issue that affected their mental health. An employee’s personal troubles can spiral, impacting not only their own performance but also the performance of their coworkers, and even harm the organization if not dealt with effectively by their supervisor. Unfortunately, the supervisory sees a performance issue instead of a health issue.

The Supervisory Referral provides support for an employee who is dealing with a personal crisis, helps improve their performance and can strengthen their relationship with coworkers. It can also protect the organization from legal minefields. A skilled EAP counselor consults with the supervisor, then works with the employee to help move toward solution with whatever mental health issue or personal challenges may be hampering their once solid work performance.
