History of the Employee Assistance Services
The Employee Assistance Program began in the United States at the end of 1960s. At first, various practices, such as support groups among colleagues and units established to combat workplace alcohol and drug abuse, failed to meet expectations due to their limited scope.
In the early 1970s, companies started to broaden the scope of the EAP by considering other problems that may impact a person’s life and by focusing on legal, economic, emotional and marital issues. These programs encouraged employees to use these services earlier in their careers, offered support rather than judgment, and offered effective solutions for those trying to overcome their substance or alcohol addictions.
In the 1980s, institutions offering professional EAPs, which are similar to today’s programs, were established.
Offering the first Employee Assistance Program in Turkey, AVİTA has adopted the universal standards and codes of conduct for its EAP.
The program is a holistic system offering complementary services for employees and managers, and periodic assessments reports to the management.
