ADVICE IN ALL
LIFE SITUATIONS

  • Difficulties in the workplace

    Conflicts in the workplace are often difficult for us humans to solve. There are situations in which we feel overwhelmed, such as

    – hidden or open conflicts with superiors, employees or colleagues
    – not enough self-esteem to assert oneself
    – fear of not meeting the requirements
    – No more joy at work
    – Exhaustion and fatigue
    – upcoming retirement, which makes you afraid

  • Relationship issues, separation/divorce

    Relationship problems are among the most common private issues why people contact us. They can be very stressful and affect our performance at work. With ICAS, employees can get support at an early stage, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, before presenteeism and absenteeism occur.

  • Familiy matters, parenting, childcare, eldercare

    People bring private concerns such as raising children or caring for relatives to their workplace.  Managers often do not know how to deal with such personal problems. Nor is it their job to solve private problems. Rather, as part of their duty of care, they should ensure that employees are able to call on help anonymously and on their own responsibility in order to disburden themselves of private worries so that their work does not suffer.

  • Stress, conflicts, bullying, harassment

    Stress and conflicts in the workplace are among the most common work-related issues why we are contacted. Especially stress-related performance losses are rarely visible from the outside. Therefore, the most effective and cost-effective prevention is if those affected can immediately help themselves. The ICAS service is low-threshold and strictly confidential. With ICAS Services, your company can more than double the proportion of employees with unrestricted capabilities, as our before/after surveys of EAP users show.

  • Burnout, depression, anxiety, bereavement, addiction

    The WHO estimates that by 2020 depression and affective disorders will be the world’s second most common disease. According to the WHO, the absence from work for mental illnesses is 50% longer than for physical illnesses. The earlier help is sought, the lower the risk of long-term mental illness. In order to be effective, support must be low-threshold, highly professional and absolutely confidential. The WHO recommends EAP as an effective tool for organizations.

  • Legal issues (housing, consumer rights, contracts, etc.)

    Our experts advise you and your employees on practical and legal issues such work-related topics, finances, debt, housing, family, consumer questions, contracts, etc.

Our EAP
