Personal problems or work situations can pop up when you least expect them, but there’s no need to navigate them alone. Gundersen’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) offers professional, confidential assistance 24 hours a day to help employees and their family members resolve these issues before they become more serious. EAP offers up to five sessions at no cost to employees and their family.
