Lifestyle EAP: The Business Case

Lifestyle EAP
Wellness at Work

Change the conversation — and your expectations — about your employee assistance program. Cleveland Clinic Lifestyle EAP is a wellness EAP focused on mental and physical health, not on illness. Lifestyle EAP gives you the tools to prevent difficult life challenges from becoming costly problems at work.

Employee stress and stress-related depression cost employers more than any other modifiable health risks. The depressed employee consumes $5,000 more in healthcare resources per medical issue.

Don’t Manage It, Resolve It

Based on more than 20 years of Cleveland Clinic experience in employee assistance, we designed Lifestyle EAP to focus on these costly issues.

  • With a focus on wellness, you and Lifestyle EAP can resolve employee life challenges before they become troubling and expensive.
  • By offering solution-oriented counseling, Lifestyle EAP empowers employees to resolve. In 85% of cases, employees don’t need to look outside of Lifestyle EAP for assistance. Lifestyle EAP counseling is not a stepping stone to your health plan.
  • By partnering with managers and employees to resolve cases without referral to the health plan, Lifestyle EAP reduces healthcare expenditures, and increases employee satisfaction and productivity.
