An employee assistance programme (EAP) is a work-based intervention program which aims to early-identify and resolve of both work and personal problems that may adversely affect performance. These problems may include, but are not limited to, health, marital relationships, family, financial, substance abuse, or emotional concerns. Quality of work life is the context that EAP fit most comfortably. Confidentiality and ethics should be considered as administrative services. In addition to promoting the health, morale, and productivity of employees, EAPs also aim to strengthen the relationship between groups of employees, management, labor unions, and local community groups. Beside all the good things the EAP will deliver in the workplace, it will also face some obstacles espescially related to the organizational culture and policy, as well as the stage of development of the organization. Criticism and criteria of an effective EAP should be considered from the very beginning. Some alternatives to start with this helping program in Indonesia should be found out, otherwise Indonesia will never have some courage to change.
