Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The goal of the Employee Assistance Program is to restore employees to full productivity. We are ready to help; all you have to do is call.

The employees of the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) are what make the organization standout among other Federal Agencies. Unfortunately, BIE employees get busy juggling work and family. It is not unusual to encounter difficulties with stress, family, relationships, alcohol, work, or other issues which impact their quality of life. The Bureau of Indian Education values its employees and has partnered with ESPYR to provide a new centralized employee assistance and work/life program for employees and their families. The BIE EAP provides a wide range of services to employees and their families.

What is the Employee Assistance Program (EAP)?

EAP is an voluntary, confidential program that helps employees (including management) work through various life challenges that may adversely affect job performance, health, and personal well-being to optimize the organization’s success.

Why use EAP?

  • EAP increases employee morale since ESPYR’s focus on assisting employees becoming productive again
  • EAP is preventive. ESPYR’s educate, evaluate, and help plan solutions for a wide variety of personal issues for employees and their family members before they become overwhelming
  • EAP is an effective tool in assisting supervisors to better manage the workplace and troubled employees. The EAP is a proactive way to extend a caring hand while building a more productive workforce
  • EAP provides employees with a valuable resource for helping them to cope with issues both on and off the job, including alcohol and drug abuse, overall mental well-being, marital/relationship issues, stress, dependent care, and much more

ESPYR maintains a web site and offers a number of convenient on-line services such as:
