Protecting Your Assets
Your organization's most valuable assets are your employees. When your employees have personal problems it affects job performance, which affects your business in many ways. Troubled employees cost U.S. companies over $150 billion dollars each year in direct and hidden costs.

Problems such as:
• Low morale
• Absenteeism
• Poor work quality
• Employee Grievances & Conflicts

Depression is the number one cause of lost productivity in the work place. Studies have found that one in 20 employees (5%) are clinically depressed at a cost of $3,000 per employee per year.
