Every day as a manager, supervisor or people leader, you juggle priorities, deal with deadlines and make decisions for your team. Along with these demands on your time and energy, you are also responsible for providing a healthy and productive workplace for your employees.
UBC’s EFAP is designed to offer you the advice, consultation and resources you as a manager need to promote and maintain a healthy working environment.
EFAP Support for Managers offers a hands-on approach to problem solving that that is meant to supplement (and not take the place of) the information and guidance you receive from your UBC Human Resources Advisor and/or Associate. It can even help you deal with performance problems, approaching difficult conversations and tackle the tough situations that you are not quite sure how to handle.

There is no cost to receive a manager consultation. Simply call the Shepell Care Access Centre at 1-800-387-4765 and identify yourself as a manager or supervisor in need of support.
