Inspiring Thoughts from EAC

We All Face Challenges

Earlier this week, I was meeting with a client to review the company’s utilization data.  In the past three months, we had received 3 calls from their workforce of 150.  I asked him if he thought that was good program utilization or if he thought that number should be higher.   He thought it could be higher, but then made this comment, “If that number increases, what does that say about our workforce?  That they have a lot of personal issues.”  Yes.  Every company’s workforce is made up of people, and it is in the nature of people to have problems; some more than others. Every human on the planet has challenges and an employee assistance program is a key resource to help meet those challenges.  A quote by Mary Kay Ash reminds us of the importance of employees in any organization – “People are definitely a company’s greatest asset. It doesn’t make any difference whether the product is cars or cosmetics. A company is only as good as the people it keeps.”
