Abstract

Africa has been in the global map due to its economic potentials and uniqueness. EAP has an excellent opportunity to impact the lives of employees in improving performance and productivity, reducing absenteeism and presenteeism.

Organisations are in desperate need to positively impact on the bottom line and EAP provides that space through its programmes and interventions.
