Improve Workplace Productivity

Most employees who use our Employee Assistance Program iStock_000019465360_Doubleservices contact us on their own, but an organization’s managers and supervisors are often the first to observe various employee concerns and issues, such as anxiety, depression, poor work performance, absenteeism, presenteeism, safety issues, interpersonal conflict and substance abuse. We offer unlimited telephonic management consultation to help managers and supervisors effectively deal with employee and workplace challenges. Also, we offer extensive web-based resources to give them the information and tools they need, 24/7.

We encourage managers and supervisors to involve VITAL WorkLife whenever they notice a problem — so we can help them and their employees take action before the situation becomes unmanageable. Here’s a brief overview of the support we can provide:

Return to Work Coaching (Included with The Complete Plan)

Provides consulting by qualified specialists in rehabilitation consulting, psychology and social work to assist employees who have lost time from work due to FMLA, workers compensation and personal leave, as well as other short- or long-term disabilities. Our job is to help employees get back to work and be productive as soon as possible. Our proactive approach helps them quickly identify and address any issues that may get in the way of their recovery and return.

Critical Incident Stress Management

Helps your organization deal with crisis situations, such as the loss of an employee or workplace violence, by supporting managers and employees in the aftermath — and helping your employees get back on their feet.

Executive Coaching

Enhances the effectiveness of your management team.

Management Consultation and Performance-Based Referrals

Supports managers and supervisors and helps them make sound performance decisions for employees — and assists them in making referrals for EAP services such as chemical dependency evaluations and anger management.

The two release forms are now available to complete electronically. Click on the appropriate form, complete all fields relevant to the referral, print the form, and then get the appropriate signatures from employer representative and employee. NOTE: the employee must sign in order for us to communicate with you and/or the organization. Then, fax it back to back to VITAL WorkLife at 320.240.1501. If you have any questions, please call 800-383-1908.
