Our Approach

Business Pastors visit the workplace 2-3 times a week developing trust and relationships with employees. We help in challenging situations such as life controlling issues, family, debt, relationships, bereavement etc. and address these issues having relevant contacts for referral if required, however we are unique from any other Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) in our pro-active approach.

The traditional EAP, which only has an average take up of 5%, is reactive usually being deployed when the issue has reached crisis or absence. Business Pastors are proactive identifying and addressing issues before reaching this critical point.
