With the rapid development of the modern economy and society, the pace of work, study and life in the workplace is becoming increasingly fast, and with it, various kinds of pressure. China is in a period of transition, with a rapidly developing economy and increasingly diverse values causing spiritual anxiety, lack of faith and emotional confusion. The current EAP can be implemented within the scope of appropriate activities to give employees a comfortable and relaxed working environment to improve cohesion, employee motivation, and thus overall performance and image. The Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is a set of systematic long-term employee services and welfare programmes set up by companies for their employees, which help to solve the psychological and behavioural problems that plague them through professional counselling and training. This paper introduces some of the existing relevant studies and provides a detailed explanation and description of the concept definition, development history and relevant theories of employee help programmes.
