Why is MCIT Making the EAP Available to You?

The greatest resource and the greatest expense to an employer are its employees. Employees that are distracted by personal problems, either at home or the office, are more susceptible to injuries at work, tardiness, absenteeism, poor job performance and often take out their frustrations and anxiety on co-workers and clients.

The EAP is a tool to provide employees with a neutral outside resource to assist in resolving difficult personal issues that may be impacting performance at work.
