Why Your Organization Has an Employee or Member Assistance Program from Arete®

Sometimes personal or work-related issues can affect your well-being and how you perform your job. Your organization recognizes that by providing you with access to excellent guidance and support, you’ll feel more like yourself again, sooner. This helps you, and it also helps your work.

Arete manages this program on behalf of your organization’s group insurance provider. We’ll help you deal with the challenges you face, which may include:

  • Dependency concerns
  • Work-related difficulties
  • Personal problems
  • Eldercare issues
  • Childcare information
  • Legal issues
  • Financial concerns
  • Nutritional counselling
  • Family challenges

All our programs are built with a focus of getting to the true source of an issue, and to provide you with practical support.
