Services to Organizational Leaders

The JPS Employee Assistance Program provides consultation with, training of, and assistance to JPS leadership seeking to manage a troubled employee, enhance the work environment, and improve employee job performance. These offerings include the following stand-alone or integrated resources:

  • Management consultation: use of an EAP clinician to offer behavioral science expertise in the formulation of a plan to address an employee behavioral problem.
  • Management trainings: for example, the “Constructive Accountability” segment of Sprint for Success.
  • Management referrals: This may begin with coaching a leader in the use of constructive confrontation to address the employee’s job performance problem. Once the referral is made, the EAP clinician provides the referring leader with information specific to the employee’s attendance and compliance with EAP recommendations.

Schwartz Rounds

Schwartz Rounds, which provides a special method of fostering emotional resilience in the workplace, is now embraced and practiced across more than 500 healthcare organizations. The purpose of Schwartz Rounds is to bring us together, on a regular basis, to talk about the difficult social, emotional, and spiritual issues we face daily in our work as caregivers. It is a chance to hear from, and share with, our colleagues, in a safe and confidential environment, our thoughts, our feelings, and experiences. And in doing so, to remind and refresh the compassion and caring that originally led us into our careers. Schwartz Rounds are different than the usual ones. They are not to problem-solve, analyze, or critique. We meet to share our experiences, to find support in our daily challenges, to foster teamwork, and ultimately to enhance the quality of care we provide our patients. The JPS Employee Assistance Program is one of several JPS functions that collaborate in the offering of Schwartz Rounds.
