In the early 1980’s when our company was just beginning, our leadership and staff were creating an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) platform from the ground up. We had humble beginnings but we had a wealth of talent, heart and strategy.
All of us were excited to “Build What Comes to PAS”. At every turn, we celebrated the excellent reputation we were building together as a team. “Taking Care of the People Who Take Care of the People” became our internal slogan of hope for continued growth and dedication to service excellence. We had a shared vision and purpose. The contributions made by each and every PAS employee truly made a difference.
Our business has grown and thrived ever since! While we have tremendously broadened our service delivery platform over the years, we have never moved away from how and why we serve people the way we do. Every single day, the people of PAS measurably improve lives by personally providing encouragement, support and resources.
Today we cover hundreds of thousands of people working in virtually every industry across the U.S. Our domestic network of licensed behavioral health professionals has grown to 60,000 and our international reach has grown to 185 countries. We are blessed to have hundreds of employers place their trust in us to serve as their EAP partner. We serve the people of PAS and our clients exceptionally well and we are very grateful for our 98%+ account retention rate. On behalf of all of us at PAS, thank you for the privilege to serve you!
