Abstract
The study was mainly to investigate the need for an Employee Assistance Programme at Reamogetswe Secure Care Centre, North West Province. EAP is a worksite programme aimed at assisting troubled employees to improve their work productivity and enhance their social functioning.

The investigation was comprised of a literature study about EAP in order to gain an understanding of it. A questionnaire was designed and handed out to employees of the Secure Care Centre to complete. Empirical findings were gathered based on the information from the questionnaires, which were completed and returned by the respondents.

The findings in the study suggested that there is a need for implementing an EAP at the Centre to assist with problems affecting employees. The findings suggested that 93.8% of the respondents agree that the Centre should take responsibility for employee’s welfare. The majority of the respondents further indicated that they prefer to have an EAP practitioner always at the Centre. The study also revealed that if employees experience problems be it personal or work related or a combination of both, they need to assist to enhance their social functioning.
