CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ComPsych today released its yearly aggregate report of health assessments across its book of business, including data from hundreds of thousands of employees of all ages, occupations, regions and industries.

ComPsych Corporation is the world’s largest provider of employee assistance programs and is the pioneer and worldwide leader of fully integrated EAP, behavioral health, wellness, work-life, HR, FMLA and absence management services under its GuidanceResources brand.
“Health assessment data clearly shows that employee physical health issues affect their emotional state, and vice versa,” said Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, Founder, Chairman and CEO of ComPsych. “By addressing employee issues holistically – whether financial, social, mental or physical – organizations can increase employees’ peace of mind and improve their overall health and focus at work.”
