The employee assistance programme is a work-based counselling programme that has been designed to assist employees in resolving the problems which may be affecting their performance at work. Employee assistance programmes assist employees with issues like alcohol, substance abuse, child or elderly care, wellness and traumatic events like workplace violence.
