Anthem Blue Cross Employee Assistance Program to Help Reduce Employee Absenteeism
Date:4/16/2008

Californians have access to face-to-face counseling with network providers

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the American Hospital Association, California had the highest workplace absenteeism at 2,761,000 lost work days per year due to hypertension, which is estimated to cost employers $522 million annually. Anthem Blue Cross' (Anthem) Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides Californians with resources to help identify and resolve issues that they may face and that may impact workplace productivity.

Anthem's EAP provides confidential, professional assistance when an employee's life and work are affected by personal problems such as relationship, stress, legal or financial issues, career concerns, and anxiety or depression. According to the American Journal of Psychiatry, workplace absenteeism is twice as high for depressed workers compared with those without depressive symptoms.

Anthem's EAP provides employees with toll-free, 24/7 telephone consultations and referral services, face-to-face counseling, legal and financial consultation, child care and eldercare referrals, provider search, and an information library for employees and household members. Given the reduction of human resource staff in many organizations and the complexity of issues in the workplace, many human resource professionals are utilizing EAP on-site services. These services include supervisor/manager training, educational workshops, substance abuse policy consultation and recommendation, workplace trauma response and Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) services.

It is not easy for employees to maintain peak performance while balancing the demands of their work and personal lives. Employees and their families will have access to an expansive Web site at http://www.anthemEAP.com , which includes thousands of articles and various interactive tools that may be able to help with
