Validium was established as a specialist and independent Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) provider in 1998.

The company has a fresh approach to EAPs, focusing on reducing the impact of employee problems on the workplace, as well as supporting individuals with their issues. Validium continues to be run by its founder directors and the core of its business is in the provision of effective and high quality EAPs. Unlike many offerings in the marketplace, Validium concentrates on the delivery of high quality and value for money and does not cut service delivery standards in order to offer lower prices to gain a sale.

Since it was founded, Validium has grown rapidly – mainly by recommendation – and today offers EAPs to some of the UK ‘s leading companies across a wide range of industry sectors. Validium works closely with its customers to deliver EAP services that support their individual organisations by impacting sickness absence, retention, management capability and employee productivity. In addition, Validium gives employees and their dependent families effective counselling and information services to assist them with their work-related and personal concerns.

Validium also offers a range of complementary organisational support services including: helplines, standalone counselling services, post-trauma/critical incident support, stress management, psychological management and assessment, mediation and investigation, employee surveys, staff development and training, and consultancy.
