Employee Assistance Programs For a Global Workforce: An Employer Toolkit

EAP Toolkit

As companies become increasingly global, employers continue to search for ways to improve the health and productivity of their employees around the world. One way that employers are working toward this goal is by putting employee assistance program(s) (EAPs) globally. The Global Business Group on Health (GBGH) has developed a comprehensive toolkit that addresses the needs of employers as they implement and promote these programs in their locations around the world.
