Employee Advisory Resource (EAR), the employee assistance plan (EAP) and work-life services provider, has officially adopted the name of its global partner, Workplace Options, and will now operate under its brand.
Since 2006, EAR has partnered with Workplace Options, the largest provider of work-life employee benefits in the United States.
To provide even greater access to tools and services for employees in the UK and throughout Europe, the company’s Global Service Headquarters will now be based in London.
Dean Debnam, chief executive officer for Workplace Options, said: “As we broadened our customer reach internationally, we felt it was a natural progression to adopt a consistent brand, formally unifying our operations.”
The new Workplace Options will be the largest integrated global EAP and work-life services provider, serving more than 15,000 clients, covering more than 22 million employees, in 153 different countries.
Collectively, Workplace Options’ outposts serve 128 of the global Fortune 500 employers.
