· EAP consultants have increased opportunities to develop an enhanced referral network in the region for employees needing/requesting assistance beyond the initial EAP visits.
· Plan in development for a confidential, web-accessed EAP site that incorporates comprehensive behavioral health information and links to resources for employees.
· For face-to-face visits, employees seeing EAP services will have the option of choosing from the convenient Brown Summit location, on-site at their employer if permitted, or several neutral Rockingham County locations that will be pre-arranged. Confidentiality will continue to be stressed and discussed prior to arranging initial visits.
· A revised menu of training options will be offered to employers and will include a focus on conflict management strategies in the workplace along with Team Building, Stress Management, Healthy Choices for Success, Substance Abuse in the Workplace, Conflict Resolution in the workplace, and other training needs identified by employers.
