  1. Predicting likelihood of seeking help through the employee assistance program among salaried and union hourly employees.

    Article - En anglais

    Aims

    This research investigated belief, social support and background predictors of employee likelihood to use an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for a drinking problem.

    Design

    An anonymous cross-sectional survey was administered in the home.

    Bivariate analyses and simultaneous equations path analysis were used to explore a model of EAP use.

    Setting

    Survey and ethnographic research were conducted in a unionized heavy machinery manufacturing plant in the central states of the United States.

    Participants

    A random sample of 852 hourly and salaried employees was selected.

    Measurements

    In addition to background variables, measures included : likelihood of going to an EAP for a drinking problem, belief the EAP can help, social support for the EAP from co-workers/others, belief that EAP use will harm employment, and supervisor encourages the EAP for potential drinking problems.

    Findings

    Belief in EAP efficacy directly increased the likelihood of going to an EAP.

    Greater perceived social support and supervisor encouragement increased the likelihood of going to an EAP both directly and indirectly through perceived EAP efficacy.

    Black and union hourly employees were more likely to say they would use an EAP.

    Males and those who reported drinking during working hours were less likely to say they would use an EAP for a drinking problem.

    Conclusions

    EAP beliefs and social support have significant effects on likelihood to go to an EAP for a drinking problem. (...)
