Colorado State University is a diverse community of more than 7,000 faculty and staff, tens of thousands of students, and countless volunteers. When any one of us has a question, concern, or need, the system can seem very complex. There are many resources for employees and students, and although each resource is invaluable, the Classified Personnel Council would like to familiarize the campus community with an essential resource for your personal well-being – the Employee Assistance Program
What is it?
The program serves to assist employees with their personal needs inside and outside of Colorado State University. The program offers confidential services on a wide range of topics. Employees and their family members are offered 6 free counseling sessions per issue per calendar year from a licensed provider in the community. The program also offers a free legal consultation via phone and 25 percent off services to hire a professional in the community. Financial information, resources and tools can assist employees with debt management, retirement/estate planning, tax questions, etc. Information regarding work-life balance including, but not limited to, child/elder care, college planning, pet care, and home/auto repair, is also available.
How does it work?
Interim coordinator Jan Pierce urges anyone in need of assistance of any kind to contact her at (970) 491-1527 or firstname.lastname@example.org. She is also able to coordinate training sessions for 15 or more people, and can provide on-site departmental assistance on a variety of topics including grieving education, consultation on “what if” situations, and dialogue around interpersonal relationships. You can also visit the Employee Assistance Program website.
The Classified Personnel Council wishes you all a safe and happy holiday season, and encourages you to contact the Employee Assistance Program for your personal wellness needs.
