Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) and the Compris Assessment
Our workplaces look very different than just a few months ago due to COVID-19. The stresses that employees suffer, and individuals in particular dealing with a chronic illness such as addiction, prompt isolation and increased despair, resulting in reduced engagement and overall job performance. Without
Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), many employees suffer without safe and confidential access to resources that could help them move to a place of healing.
Compris provides EAPs the tool to assess, predict risk, and refer employees to treatment with its individualized guidance. Fostering hope and resilience creates happier, healthier and more productive employees. For more information, please visit compriscare.com.
Over 70% of those with addictions are employed. Addictions in the workplace have cost businesses an estimated $81 billion. Workplace productivity accounts for approximately 72% of the costs, compared to healthcare costs (11%), for alcohol use alone. However, addictions also affect businesses in other ways, such as absenteeism, staff turnover, and potential legal problems based on inappropriate workplace behaviors. Excessive costs are substantially connected to the lack of treatment engagement by those with addictions: Only 10% get treatment.
At a time when social distancing has made it particularly difficult for employers to immediately recognize their employee’s difficulties, Compris offers a timely needs assessment for people suffering with or at risk for addiction. Employees can take an online, 10–20 minute self-report, designed for intuitive navigation, with carefully constructed language to encourage honest responses. The ComprisCare Profile© is delivered to healthcare providers within minutes of completion. Compris’ automated comprehensive addiction diagnostics can be used to refer employees through your company’s EAP program, as well as, to help guide telehealth treatment for anyone, anywhere with internet access.
The Compris Assessment© offers Employee Assistance Program benefits that will improve the health, resilience and overall quality of life for these at-risk employees. We believe that use of Compris will increase EAPs confidence, especially amidst the COVID-19 workplace adjustments, to add routine addiction assessment, and ultimately improve workplace productivity and job contentment.
