Employee Assistance

Employee Assistance Program

Whether an employee is experiencing marital issues, caring for an elderly parent, raising a teenager, or dealing with other stressors at home, the strain of personal problems can result in decreased productivity. Therefore, as an employer, it is much more beneficial and cost effective to address personal issues rather than ignore them.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
Utilizing the world’s most widely-used and trusted tool for improving work life, we coach teams, managers, and line staff to improve individual performance, develop leadership, encourage team building, and reduce conflict. This is done through individual and group sessions.

Pre-Hire Assessment
Using the California Psychological Inventory (CPI) 260, a personality assessment that describes and predicts what people will say or do in specific contexts. With over 50 years of use, this is a reliable, powerful leadership, development, and selection tool. The assessment measures 29 distinct psychological areas grouped in categories like dealing with others, self-management, motivations and thinking style, personal characteristics, and disposition at work.

Mandatory Referrals
A workplace-based referral which requires the employee to utilize EAP services after violating a stated company policy

Management Support Group
Up to 15 of your managers/supervisors can participate each month in a one-hour session focusing on a variety of managerial topics at your location. These sessions are facilitated by our EAP counselor/trainer.

Conflict Mediation
Mediation is a process designed to support and guide parties engaged in a work-related conflict. Participants are assisted in clarifying their concern, establishing goals, and implementing clear steps toward agreed upon actions. Follow up meetings are designed to ensure that goals are met and progress is made toward positive change.

Leadership Skills Coaching
Leadership Skills Coaching is a tool to maximize performance, commitment, and leadership abilities among valued employees. This one-on-one process helps companies develop their key people, giving them appropriate business skills to succeed in their positions and benefit the organization overall.

Policy and Procedure Development
Penn Foundation's EAP will provide consultation services as well as samples of policies and procedures that could used to assist in the development of policies regarding the EAP program.

Substance Use DOT Assessments
A Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) will evaluate the employee who tested positive on a pre-employment, post-accident, reasonable suspicion, or random drug or alcohol test. The SAP will follow the DOT procedures of evaluation, recommendations, referral, and follow up as required in DOT Regulation 49 C.F.R., Part 40.
