Employee Assistance Program

The City of Hibbing recognizes that its success depends largely on the capability, productivity and dependability of its employees. The Organization further recognizes the realities that exist in our society and the related impact on the work environment.  An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) has been implemented to encourage covered employees and their families to seek professional counseling services and to help reduce the social stigmas that often prevent employees from seeking counseling assistance. 

This free benefit offers you and your family a wide variety of tools and services to help with problems that might affect your daily life at work or at home. It also includes training and other resources for your personal growth and development. The City’s plan includes a standard benefit for all benefit eligible employees, and a specific benefit for public safety staff.

There are many more benefits, so we encourage you to explore them and share them with your household. To access your EAP, simply call the toll-free number 1-800-252-4555 to talk with a counselor or coach. You can also visit your EAP online at www.theEAP.com  OR www.PublicSafetyEAP.com for thousands of problem-solving resources and self-help tools.
