The Office of Human Resources today announced a new employee assistance program (EAP) provided through an outside resource, Deer Oaks EAP. Services offered through this program will be available to Clemson University faculty and staff and their dependents with a focus on the importance of work/life balance. Through Deer Oaks, there will be a variety of training courses and seminars that employees will have access to such as leadership, coaching, communication skills, dealing with change and many more. Additionally, counseling services will be available to include personal, family, and marriage counseling, financial and legal consultations, conflict resolution, substance abuse and other issues that may affect work or life balance. All counseling services are confidential. Faculty and staff may also access online resources provided by Deer Oaks EAP by visiting www.deeroaks.com and logging into Member Services with “clemson” as both the username and password.
In most cases, there will be no cost to the employee for counseling services.
