Beacon’s customers have frequently been the recipient of the industry’s highest recognition, the Employee Assistance Society of North America (EASNA) Corporate Award. For 11 of the last 15 years, Beacon customers have been the recipient of the industry’s highest recognition, the Employee Assistance Society of North America’s Corporate Award. EASNA is the employee assistance industry’s trade association and fosters best practices, research, education, and advocacy in behavioral health and wellness that influences workplace performance.
Each year, EASNA recognizes companies that demonstrate excellence in their use of the EAP. An independent panel of judges reviews submissions and evaluates them on criteria that underscore the importance of integrating EAP services to ensure the health and wellbeing of the company’s workforce. The EASNA Corporate Award of Excellence identifies companies that work in partnership with employee assistance providers to design and integrate a program that enhances employee wellbeing and empowers the company to work toward a healthy and productive workplace.
In 2019, the Boeing Company received the EASNA Corporate Award. The Boeing Company is the world’s largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners, defense, space and security systems, and service provider of aftermarket support. As the biggest US manufacturing exporter, the company supports airlines and US and allied government customers in more than 150 countries. The Boeing EAP and Work/Life Solutions Program is a long-standing, well-respected and multi-pronged service delivery model that is well coordinated internally with its Wellness, Security, Legal, HR/ER, and Medical departments, and the Industrial Athlete program to support employee wellness and productivity.
Highlights and results of Boeing’s EAP include the following:

- The rollout of a six-session mindfulness series, with 237 in-person sessions conducted, reached 1,672 participants and another 7,065 participants who viewed the recorded sessions.
Boeing’s depression screening initiative was integrated into the overall wellness incentive program, yielding 10,303 screenings compared to 2,773 the prior year. For members initially assessed with a severe level of distress, EAP outcome measures showed an 82 percent improvement in overall functioning, including workplace performance.
