Supporting great youth workers leads to quality outcomes for young people: Introducing UltimateEAP.
In today’s fast-paced and constantly evolving youth and community work environment, employees often face numerous challenges and stressors that can impact their mental and emotional wellbeing. This can lead to a decrease in productivity, job satisfaction, and overall employee engagement which ultimately impacts our young clients. As a result, it’s essential for organizations to have an effective and efficient Employee Assistance Program (EAP) in place to support their employees and their families.

EAP is an acronym for Employee Assistance Program.
It is a short-term, solution-focussed counselling and referral service available to employees through your workplace.
An Employee Assistance Program is a confidential service provided externally to your organisation by psychologists and social workers to assist with workplace and/or personal issues that you may be experiencing.
These may include:
Work related issues:
work performance, job security, career, motivation, stress, conflict and harassment.
Depression; anxiety, grief and loss, fear/phobias, personal development, trust, self esteem, anger, alcohol and drug use, gambling, and other health related issues.
Family and relationship issues:
Parenting, family violence, intimacy, generational difficulties, and other family challenges.
The Employee Assistance Program is completely funded by the employer and is provided at no cost to your employees, and you don’t need a referral.
