Embedded EAPs Can Undermine the Mission of EAPs

Posted by Kathryn Lynch-Morin on Nov 13, 2019 8:43:48 AM

Look closely at the price tag and service offering differences between programs before you decide which is right for your organization. 

When an organization invests in employee assistance programs (EAPs), it is making an investment in its people and in the bottom line.

Employees with access to EAPs benefit from brief, solutions-focused counseling that is combined with an assessment and referral to other resources for long-term needs. Problems are resolved and employees who receive help are more productive and less likely to miss work or leave the job because of a crisis. Work teams learn more effective ways to communicate and organizations become more efficient and harmonious.

A Guide to Workplace Wellness Culture

Posted by Kathryn Lynch-Morin on Sep 30, 2019 2:40:02 PM

Creating a wellness program is not the same thing as creating and sustaining a culture of wellness in the workplace.

A wellness program has a beginning and an end, while a wellness culture is a way of life—one that’s followed by leaders and employees at all levels of the organization.

The good news is that you likely don’t need to reinvent the wellness wheel when it comes to establishing a culture of health and well-being.

When "Rightsizing" Is a Must

Posted by Kathryn Lynch-Morin on Jul 10, 2019 2:52:37 PM

Rightsizing—the long-term move to get the right people into the right seats within an organization—almost always involves letting people go. But that doesn’t mean that the process can’t be approached strategically.

You, as a manager, must be prepared if your company is planning to layoff several employees at once. That means knowing how timing and details affect the situation of rightsizing, even if it is an ongoing process. 

Workforce attrition is one of the easiest—and least uncomfortable—ways to rightsize your organization. The slow but steady method can be realized by not filling vacant positions and/or putting in place a hiring freeze. Because the responsibilities of departing employees may need to be shifted to remaining staff, this method requires a strong alignment between organizational goals and talent management.
