Employee assistance is the work organization’s resource that utilizes specific core technologies to enhance employee and workplace effectiveness through prevention, identification, and resolution of personal and productivity issues.
An EAP is a workplace-sponsored program designed to assist:
- Work organizations in addressing productivity issues
- Employees and/or family members in identifying and resolving personal concerns that may affect job performance
The purpose of the contracted EAP Network Provider is to deliver employee assistance services to employees and their family members in geographically targeted areas of Washington State.
On an "as-needed' basis, the WA State Employee Assistance Program (EAP) solicits applications to contract with qualified behavioral health, substance abuse, or Employee Assistance Professionals to provide employee assistance services at several locations in Washington State.
