How Can a Chaplain Assistance Program Help You? by Derrick Hall, Corporate Chaplain
Some of you may be new to a company that provides chaplain employee assistance program as an employee benefit and having a chaplain come by each week may seem a little strange to you. So if you find yourself working in a company that provides chaplains, what does that mean for you and your family? What are the ways that you and your family can benefit from the relationship and care of a workplace chaplain?
Here's the reality. More than ever before employees are bringing their problems to work. High levels of stress and increasingly blurred lines of distinction between home and work life are making it harder and harder for workers to engage at work. Chaplains create a culture of caring by helping employees focus on the work at hand by helping shoulder the employee’s personal concerns and problems that follow them from home.
As a corporate chaplains, We meet on a regular basis with employees outside the workplace simply to encourage them and provide the sounding board that many are lacking. We provide marriage counseling and grief care to workers who have fewer and fewer strong relationships outside of work. Sometimes employees just need to know that there is someone who cares for them regardless of performance or productivity and a workplace chaplain provides this kind care with the assurance of total confidentiality.
Having a chaplain at work allows you access to a familiar friend in times of need rather than an 800 number to a person you will never meet or know. Each week we remind hundreds of workers, "Call us (916) 224-2244, if we can do anything for you" and mean it.
Your chaplains stand ready to serve you or connect you to the resources that can help you and your family.
We would love to talk with you today about starting a chaplaincy program at your business. Call (916) 860-0860 today!
