Why
Chaplains?

Workplace health trumps everything else in business.

Workplace health is far less about number crunching, process optimization, and requirement keeping as it is about employee wholeness. Although important to operational efficiency, none of these are sustainable outside of a healthy workplace. Unfortunately, healthy workplaces don’t just happen. They are the product of an intentional effort to foster and sustain employee wholeness.

Emotional health comes from being known.

“Whole” employees develop when they’re cared for out of compassion and respect, not as a “human resource.” By training, discipline, and demeanor, chaplains are “people knowers”. They’re not number crunchers or process experts or managers. Instead, they’re driven by opportunities to deeply know others, respond to need, and foster sustained emotional wholeness in people.

Workplace Chaplains deliver.

For the workplaces that truly understand the power of employee wholeness, we hire the best chaplains we can find and give them all the resources they need to do what they do best. At the foundation of a healthy workplace are emotionally whole workers. Our chaplains know this well.



How we
differ
from an
employee
assistance
program
(EAP).

Present and proactive.

We work on the “shop floor”, not in an office or on the other end of a 1-800 number waiting for a call. Unlike EAP techs, we provide a “ministry of presence”. We intentionally loiter. We engage. Our physical presence enables early intervention. We identify and address potential issues before they become a costly or legal crisis.

Intentional and responsive.

By being present and responding appropriately to basic relational needs, we earn the right to engage with employees. Unlike EAP techs, Workplace Chaplains are trained to love, give grace, and see deeply into an individual. We interact with what we see in ways that bring new realizations and transformation—not just information and resources—to individuals.

Driving real change.

HR departments execute an often bureaucratic process that can keep them at arm’s length from employees. EAPs augment the process by offering important resources. We work outside the process, engaging people with dignity and trust to create transformation—not incremental change. Additionally, our holistic understanding of people combined with approachability and grace, brings us into contact with hidden brokenness. Whole and truly healthy individuals bring creativity and productivity to their work.


 


Our employees say it’s nice to have a confidential source right at work to turn to with problems. We found a very positive impact on our turnover, absenteeism, unfocused work and communication.”

We have found it is a natural extension of our Police Chaplain program that serves all our employees. I have been very impressed with the professional and dedicated approach through which these services are delivered.”
