NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- wayForward, a behavioral health and emotional wellness technology company,

today announced its partnership with PAS (Personal Assistance Services), a global EAP (employee assistance program) that helps employees and managers solve problems, navigate challenges and strengthen their work and home life. Combining evidence-based assessment and user-driven training tools with robust analytics, the wayForward digital platform provides a structured, yet personalized approach to care. The platform efficiently engages, screens and trains employees and managers, which extends the reach of PAS' expertise and maximizes outcomes.

"PAS has always been at the forefront of EAP innovation, which is why today's announcement is so meaningful," said Ritvik Singh, wayForward's CEO. "PAS is among a handful of full-service EAPs whose business model is based on delivering value via measurable results. The wayForward platform allows PAS to scale its programs and service offerings by reaching more people where they 'live' – on their mobile devices – and engaging them in a self-paced process that will help them achieve their personal goals and improve their quality of life. PAS' customers will reap the benefits of a better prepared, focused and productive workforce."    

Independent, as well as internal studies, have shown that the wayForward platform improves employee engagement rates. According to wayForward data, a third of all employees complete detailed screening on multiple domains. Additionally, the regular digital outreach campaigns are read by over 25 percent of the covered employees.

"A modern EAP for today's workforce needs to proactively increase engagement, leverage technology to deliver personalized care through people's preferred means of communication, and ultimately it must consistently deliver better outcomes to more people at all levels of the organization," said Susan Skinner, President of PAS. "The wayForward platform allows us to do all these things by broadening our engagement platform to include automated risk assessment and on-demand access to cognitive behavioral care, with the option to request additional services or speak directly with a licensed counselor 24/7."
