What We Hear from Our Professional Network

Not all EAP and other assistance program providers treat their network professionals as valued partners. We see you as integral to our success and want you to enjoy working with our team.

Here’s what we’ve heard from your colleagues:

  • “To the whole Arete gang: Thank you all. Truly, you have been the most pleasant and “real” EAP I’ve ever worked with in over 18 years.”
  • “As an encouragement for the work you are doing: I fear what may have happened if you had not sent the referral when you did.”
  • “You are a vital link in providing help for people in many forms of pain.”
  • “I just want to thank you. You guys are amazingly fast at getting things coordinated.”

What We Hear from People Calling Us for Help

We invite all callers to participate in a voluntary and anonymous satisfaction survey.

Over the last four years, we are pleased to say:

  • more than 95% of individuals helped through our programs reported feeling reassured and informed, or understood and satisfied, after their initial conversation with one of our intake coordinators
  • 91% of our clients reported their personal counsellor helped them determine concrete solutions to address the issue at hand

Results like this reflect why we appreciate your focus on offering practical assistance.

Managing Excellence

Many of your clients may hold responsible positions at work. It’s not easy when you’re the “buck stops here” person in an organization. Owners, managers, team leaders and key representatives face the challenge of keeping the organization on track, while at the same time, encouraging and motivating the individuals who help make that happen.

Sometimes a little advice or some fresh ideas can make a difference when key individuals run into situations that threaten to throw things off. Our Managing Excellence series offers practical suggestions in a down-to-earth style. New topics are added regularly.

Feel free to mention these as an extra resource to your clients, if appropriate.

The Flipside of Saying Yes
