At M&T, we are concerned about the well-being of our employees and their families. That’s why we offer an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) as one of the many benefits provided to you as an M&T employee. Sometimes personal problems or relationship issues can affect performance as well as interactions with colleagues and/or customers. Employee Assistance Programs offer assistance and support for yourself and your immediate family members (spouse or domestic partner and dependents) on a wide range of personal issues.
GuidanceResources offers free confidential assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you resolve these issues and get back on track. We encourage you to make the most of this valuable benefit. Referrals to our Employee Assistance Program can be made by the employee, by an immediate family member, or by the employee’s supervisor.
