Setting up an EAP

Wondering how to go about starting an employee assistance program? At Associated EAP we make it easy. You can get your new EAP started in as little as 30 minutes. Here’s how.

Step one – Contact us

Contact our office on (02) 8007 7474 and we can explain how an EAP works.

The Associated Counsellors EAP is a unique simple and no fuss ‘pay-as-you-use’ service, which means no retainers and no pre-purchase arrangements. You only pay for what you use. Small and medium-size businesses can now too afford the same EAP services that our national and government clients enjoy.

Step Two – Select your Options

The backbone of an EAP is access to quality counselling for your staff. Select your choice of referral arrangement for employee counselling from the following options:

1) Self-Referral: which allows your employees to anonymously access our service directly for a set number of sessions. This is by far the most popular option among our employers.

2) HR Referral: which requires staff to be referred to our service by an appointed manager or HR contact. This means that each employee is individually authorised by you to use the service.

You can also choose whether you want to extend your EAP service to employees and their spouses, partners or families.

Step Three – Register your Agreement

We will email you our plain-English Terms & Conditions document to read and sign. Our straight-forward agreement allows you to tick the options you want for your EAP and only takes about 5 minutes to read. Once signed and returned to us, your EAP is registered on our systems and you receive confirmation. We will also send you more information to assist you to inform staff of their new wellbeing benefits.

Ready to Get Started?
Simply call our office. We can answer any questions you might have and get your EAP set up and available to your staff within minutes.

Once your EAP is established, our central booking office can connect your employees to counsellors in a range of locations across Sydney, the Central Coast, the Illawarra and in capital cities across Australia. We also offer an online service and telephone counselling service for remote workers.
