EASNA Corporate Excellence Awards Nominations Due

The Employee Assistance Society of North America is accepting nominations for the 6th Annual Corporate Awards of Excellence until March 31.

One American and one Canadian company that have established excellent programs to enhance employees' well-being and productivity by partnering with employee assistance program (EAP) providers will be the ultimate winners of the Employee Assistance Society of North America's 6th Annual Corporate Awards of Excellence. Right now, EASNA is seeking nominations with a deadline of March 31.

A new questionnaire will allow the assessors to determine the winners. Entries must be submitted by e-mail without attachments; information about the awards and past winners is available here, and the nomination form is here.

A panel of three judges will review the nominees with the identifying name of the EAP provider removed. Winners will be notified in April and recognized at a May 7 luncheon ceremony during EASNA's 2010 Institute in Montreal, Canada.

EASNA, based in Arlington, Va., is focused on broadening the employee assistance field. EAPs are employer-sponsored services to assist with employee and/or family problems, including mental health problems, substance abuse and addictions, marital problems, and financial troubles. The programs originated with a primary focus on drug or alcohol use and have expanded their focus into health and wellness; they emphasize rehabilitating valued employees. The employer may require that an impaired employee participate in the program.

The original mission of EAPs remains relevant: A study funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, an HHS agency, indicated in 2008, 5.3 million Americans ages 12 and older had abused cocaine and 1.1 million had abused crack at least once in the year prior to being surveyed.
