Employee Assistance Program

With the recent passing of our friend and colleague Brian Dodge we know that employees may be struggling with this and may need help coping with his loss.

We want you to know that through our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) you can receive up to 8 free sessions of counseling per incident. You will need to call our EAP at 1-800-EAP-CALL and give them our Company ID of 9334. They can set you up with a local counselor in the area that you desire, or they have over the phone sessions available as well.

This is a completely free and confidential service to you and your family members. If you have any questions on how to use the EAP, please contact Kayleigh Misner, HR Generalist.
