Ceridian & U.S. Bank Discuss Ways To Amplify Employee Assistance Program Engagement & Return On Investment During The Human Resource Executive Health & Benefits Leadership Conference

U.S. Bank Champions A Culture Of Wellness By Increasing Employee Engagement In EAP By 185%

Minneapolis, MN, March 12, 2014 –U.S. Bank, one of the largest commercial banks in the United States, will offer insights on how to engage employees in employee assistance programs (EAP), such as LifeWorks by Ceridian on Monday, March 17 at 1 p.m. PT during the Human Resource Executive Health & Benefits Leadership Conference in Las Vegas.  

Sandi Boller, vice president of human resources at U.S. Bank, will focus on how the bank has developed a strong EAP communications and promotions plan to achieve a workplace culture of wellness. U.S. Bank uses Ceridian’s LifeWorks program, which includes counseling services and online resources.  As part of this presentation, Mary Jane Konstantin, senior vice president of LifeWorks at Ceridian, will speak to the importance of the EAP provider’s role in partnering with organizations to deliver outstanding services so that ROI can be fully recognized.

“While many U.S. organizations offer employee assistance programs to their staff, within our organization employees take full advantage of this benefit,” says Boller. “We’re committed to making our EAP more visible, relevant and accessible to all employees. We’ve succeeded in doing just that: increasing total interactions with LifeWorks by 185% since last year.”

“Employee Assistance Programs can help keep employees healthy, productive and engaged, but they’re only effective if people know about them and are able to easily tap into this valuable resource,” says Konstantin.  “Helping organizations promote EAP use is important.  It’s a key driver to achieving workplace wellness and making an impact on an organization’s bottom line.  Demonstrating return-on-investment in EAPs helps everyone make the business case for future investment in wellness resources, tools and programs.”
