You Down With EAP?
Norco's Finance Committee yesterday approved a $198,000 contract over a period of five years with Mazzitti and Sullivan to provide what HR Director Amy Trapp calls EAP. That is an employee benefit program that helps employee with personal problems like depression, grief or addiction issues that interfere with productivity. Trapp indicated that, in addition to helping employees, this program will reduce health care costs.
Mazzitti is one of nine companies that submitted proposals. Bob Werner groused that she did not provide the names and addresses of Lehigh Valley counselors used, but Trapp indicated there are likely several hundred of them.
Trapp: "You down with EAP?"
Council: "Yeah, you know me."
