Great demands are placed on employees and their families, both at home and on the job. A troubled employee can cost a company thousands of dollars in sick pay, accidents, absenteeism, lost productivity and healthcare claims. The Life Connection (TLC) provides members with coordinated professional services to help balance life’s demands.
As part of your overall risk management strategy and human resource preservation, The Life Connection will encourage members and their families to seek early professional intervention. This will reduce the potential of continued challenges, and escalation of the underlying problem, which in turn may result in costly, long-term treatment and/or job disruption. The Life Connection is intended to provide help for any personal problem that may adversely affect an employee's health and or job performance.
A predetermined number of counseling sessions is available for assessment, short-term counseling, referral and follow-up services. The EAP is designed to assist members and their families with a variety of work/life problems in areas, such as marital, legal, financial, emotional, stress, substance abuse, grief and loss, work pressures, parent/child conflicts, and communication. The program is available at no cost to eligible members and their family members to encourage early problem identification and resolution.
Telephone consultations are arranged with licensed/certified professionals for legal advice or representation, financial planning, investments and/or tax consultation, referrals to licensed childcare facilities, or varying types of in-home or agency care for aging family members.
Written materials have been developed that include practical advice on the topic.
