Wholeness Healing Employee Assistance Program
A new venture has been launched at Wholeness Healing Center, one that allows us to provide even more services to individuals and families in the central Nebraska region. Our new service is Wholeness Healing EAP, an Employee Assistance Program designed to allow businesses the opportunity to procure a plan in which their employees are provided with mental health counseling and well-BEING programs.
Because “life happens”, it is not surprising that an overwhelming majority of Americans (92%) agree that personal problems often spill over into work. In fact, each year, one in five employees face a significant problem that disrupts life at home and affects productivity at work. It might be a child in trouble, an aging parent needing care, an unpaid debt or a substance abuse problem. It is difficult for employees to stay focused on work productivity when experiencing something unbalancing in their personal life. It too often affects getting to work on time, or even getting to work at all.It can impact focus or begin to affect employees in a physical way. This affects job performance. This affects a business! Each employee experiencing job performance problems costs a company or organization conservatively 25% of salaries and fringe benefits in absenteeism, tardiness, reduced efficiency, accidents, medical benefits and judgment errors.
We at Wholeness Healing Center want to assist employers by being there for the employees who need additional support. This support is confidential for the employee and gives employees a broad menu of services to access. The ability for employees to function and perform at a high-level consistently is greatly aided by our Employee Assistance Program.
Wholeness Healing EAP is a service employers can participate in to offer free benefits to
their employees dealing with work, personal, and/or family related problems in a confidential manner. By engaging in early intervention with our qualified therapists, employees are able to access resources which will allow them to make the changes bettering their lives, to get back on track when “life happens”, and to restore or improve their well-BEING. Through a collaborative effort, employees experience compassionate care while making changes that enhance their lives.
Some of the most common personal issues within the workplace include the following:
- Depression and Stress
- Tobacco/smoking issues
- Relationship/Marital/Parenting Issues
- Grief Issues
- Family Problems
- Job-related Problems
- Alcohol and Drug Abuse
- Financial Concerns
- Weight Issues/Obesity
- Co-worker Communications
Wholeness Healing EAP focuses on the mental and emotional well-BEING of employees, providing proven ways to adopt healthy behaviors. Our plan is unique in that we offer sessions with more unique and holistic services than other employee assistance programs.
In addition to traditional counseling methods, our plan provides for hypnotherapy for smoking cessation and weight release as well as stress reducing, neurobiofeedback and
energy-enhancing utilities such as the Energy Enhancement System and Migun Massage Beds. A full list of services provided by Wholeness Healing EAP is available on our website.
Our goal is to assist businesses in reducing healthcare costs, as well as employee turnover and absenteeism, while increasing employee morale and efficiency in productivity. We want to play a role in making central Nebraska businesses successful by providing services to ensure that their workforce is safe, well-adjusted, and productive, with an overall sense of well-BEING.
“What matters in life is not what you’re busy doing or having, but what you’re busy BEING. Whatever you ARE is what you will experience in your life. Your ‘beingness’ equals your life experience and affects everything you touch”.
