Next annual conference
Welcome to EAEF, Employee Assistance European Forum, a non profit organisation dedicated to the development of employee assistance and worklife services in Europe.
EAEF was founded in 2002, and is the leading voice for employee assistance in Europe. Current membership of EAEF includes individuals and organisations from over 25 countries – attracting subscriptions from all over Europe and also Asia Pacific and North America. We offer a unique opportunity to share expertise and network with EA professionals who are delivering different models of workplace support in their own region.
Membership of EAEF allows you to join our resources network and we welcome applications from those who would like to become further involved in the organisation whether new to the field, or expert in their country. There is also opportunity to join our multiple task forces enabling real contribution to developments in the field of employee assistance in Europe. Members have the opportunity to exchange up to date news items, articles on best practice etc via the website – and data from our university led research programmes will be published for their information.
Our annual conference is the highlight of the year, and this is held in June in a different country each time to reflect the broad remit and diversity of the organisation. The highly successful event in Athens this year will be followed by a conference in Dublin on 20th/21st June 2013. We warmly invite delegates to join the energetic team in Ireland at that time and will welcome HR and Occupational Health professionals, client organisations as well as EAEF members and their colleagues. This year our first EAEF Innovation of the Year Award was presented at the Conference and we look forward to receiving more dynamic and innovative applications this year.
EAEF is a continuously developing organisation and seeks to enhance the professional delivery of workplace and wellbeing solutions throughout Europe, relying on input from its members to ensure current ideas are publicised and shared. Further details of the 2013 conference in Ireland will be advertised when available, and in the meantime we hope that increasing numbers of individuals and organisations will take up membership and become part of this vibrant community of professionals.
