Employees in failing relationships cost employers money!

Research estimates that $6 billion is lost by American businesses due to decreased productivity stemming from relationship difficulties.
Conversely, employees in successful relationships increase profits for their employers.
When companies invest in the physical and relational wellness of their workers, returns on investments can range as high as $6.85 for every $1 spent.

"Unlike Vegas, relationship problems at home don’t stay at home; they follow people to work and negatively impact their productivity"…….Jim Adams III and Teresa Adams, MAMFT, LPC, NCC

Relationships are no longer only the realm of clergy, counselors, and traditional EAPs (Employee Assistance Programs). Companies wanting to increase their profitability will do well to realize that business takes place in the boardroom and the bedroom. It is in every company’s best financial interest to understand how marriage and family wellness affect their business and to invest in the promotion of relational wellness.

While EAP services can offer tremendous value and benefits, most employees do not use EAP services. Statistics show that only 3-5% of employees nationwide actually use their employer’s EAP services. This number continues to diminish as more millennials enter your workplace. Why is this an issue and what do you do about it?

The Problem:  Relationship problems often cause decreased productivity and yet most employees are not currently using the EAP services offered. 

There are five main reasons for this:

*Employees don’t think it’s confidential.

*Employees feel there is a stigma attached to reaching out for help (especially men).

*They think they have to ask permission from their supervisor or HR.

*They don’t know the EAP services exists. 

*Traditional EAP services don’t engage millennials through new media formats.  

Our services offer solutions for each of the five obstacles above. 

The information above is taken from the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy and from Psychology Today.  To validate the “problem,” please do a quick check of the total number of EAP hours used during 2015 for your organization.

"As a HR professional, I too have been following current events surrounding domestic abuse and parental abuse cases that have been receiving major media coverage recently. In addition to the horrible human toil these events have taken on the affected families, each situation is also taking a measurable toil on the employers of these individuals. They remind us once again about the interconnectivity of our personal relationships and work environments. 

While these high-profile events are being tried in the court of public opinion via social media, national news outlets and the like, thousands of families across the nation, including some of your employees, are dealing with similar situations on a much less public stage.

How are their untold relationship struggles impacting the day-to-day work environment? The answer is clear: the mental anguish, physical ailments and resulting productivity declines are having a direct impact on your company's bottom line.

Is your company prepared to proactively protect the company and provide the right resources for your employees? Don't wait until a domestic situation comes calling at the receptionist's desk. Act now to ensure the relational wellness of your employees and, ultimately, the financial health of your company."
