Employee Assistance Programs

Our approach to providing EAP services aligns closely with the logistical challenges in the transportation industry. Like many of your operations, we never close. Competent, compassionate, professional behavioral health counselors staff our Care Center every day, 24-hours a day, providing always-live access across a variety of communication modalities. In turn, our counselors have immediate access to a broad range of professional and community services, both nationally and globally. Among other services, we provide:

  • Telephonic, video* and face-to-face counseling
  • Risk assessment and crisis response
  • Management consultation and referrals on workplace concerns
  • Work/life resources and community referrals

Empathia’s EAP addresses an expansive range of personal, interpersonal and workplace concerns. We help employers and employees be at their best and we have the metrics to prove it.

Crisis Management Services

While our EAP services address personal and smaller-scale workplace issues, large-scale crises and disasters require a distinct and robust response capability. In the event of an accident or other major disaster, we support your team with rapid-response crisis management services, including:

  • Dedicated, scalable, 24/7 call center staffed by crisis counselors
  • Critical incident response and management
  • Professional on-site support
  • Organizational and management consultation
  • Victim and family assistance

Providing timely, competent and compassionate support for victims and families in the aftermath of a large-scale disaster is both the right thing to do and critical for organizational recovery and reputation. In a high-profile industry, where workplace culture and organizational brand deeply influence success, disaster readiness requires preparation, practice and access to effective resources.

Global Service Delivery

Transportation and logistics are the backbone of the world’s economy and an integral part of almost every business. With a global network of master’s-prepared employee assistance providers and crisis response professionals, our team is here to support your team, no matter where they are located.

Protect and care for your team ... no matter where their next assignment takes them.
