All too often, employees are distracted by personal problems at work, decreasing their ability to work efficiently and focus on the tasks at hand. Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) provide employees with counseling, legal and financial aid when needed. EAPs are typically available to employees, their spouses and their dependants. They offer help for problems outside of work that result in personal stress, including family issues, health and wellness matters, psychological issues, elder care, criminal charges (non-work related) and more.
At Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. we are often utilized as the legal component of EAPs for various industries and in countless markets. With our prepaid group legal plans, we can provide your employees with attorney assistance from our diverse network of legal professionals. Although we do not handle work-related issues, our attorneys are skilled in a variety of common practice areas, including family law, criminal matters and more.
On average, distracted employees are 21% less productive than when they’re not stressed. This lack of productivity costs American companies billions of dollars a year. Using Countrywide’s legal network, though, you can help employees reduce absenteeism and presenteeism, as well as cut back on health-related issues such as depression.
Registration is easy and we can even work with brokers or third-party administrators to complete enrollment. Our prepaid group legal services will fit seamlessly into your existing EAP structure and we’ll provide training for your plan administrator to ensure complete and smooth integration. We’ll also provide you with all the marketing materials needed to inform your employees about our plans, including brochures, email communications and banner advertisements, as well as a simple-to-use webpage for employee registration.
