Description: Employee assistance is at a crossroads. We can choose the path of professionalization, building on the foundations of an evidence-based practice model that meets our clients' evolving needs, or we may find that new technologies developed outside the EA field will drive new applications that replace the expertise of employee assistance professionals. New opportunities, such as the global drive to create corporate wellness services and a compelling employee value proposition, are challenging the status quo of the EA profession. In the evolving workplace of the 21st century, can EA remain viable and visible as a unique profession? Does the goal to be able to work and love still have the motivating power it once did? The speaker draws from the results of Mercer's collaboration with the World Economic Forum on the Human Capital Index and his work creating health and well-being strategies for global corporations to illustrate the opportunities and pitfalls for employee assistance in modern workplaces around the globe.
