Aspiria Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary!

aspiria_10year_logo_enThis year marks Aspiria Corp.’s 10 year anniversary, and as a part of the celebration, I am excited to launch this new blog where I’ll discuss all things EAP and mental health related!

A little bit about our evolution:  Aspiria Corp. was established in 2003 as a result of the gap forming in the employee assistance program (EAP) market for small and medium sized companies.  Large scale consolidation within the EAP industry helped form my vision to create a specialized employee assistance program that not only focused on quality program offerings, but also provided genuine and responsive customer service.

And we have done just that!

Our roots are embedded in our name “Aspiria”, taken from the Latin derivative “Aspiro”, which means to elevate or to aspire to.  Our proactive employee and wellness assistance programs breathe new life into organizations and its people, empowering them to reach their full potential.

Today, Aspiria is a Canadian-owned, boutique EAP company with a strong national presence. Our team holds over 75 years of EAP experience dedicated to providing customized mental health solutions to empower organizations and their 50,000+ employees and families.

Our growth shows no signs of slowing down. In 2007, we merged with LINK Employee Assistance Professionals Inc., followed by a strategic alliance with The Empire Life Insurance Company in 2011. The collaboration with Empire Life resulted in the creation of a new Employee Assistance Program, AssistNow™, designed specifically for Empire Life Group Benefits customers.

We have established ourselves as the “better alternative” to traditional EAPs, and I believe we have done this with our quality people, from our front-line counsellors to our administrators.   They live and breathe the values important to our company:  Caring, Integrity, Responsiveness, Ethics, and, Dedication.

We look forward to celebrating our 10th anniversary as a progressive mental health company with all our loyal clients, and those just getting to know us!

Please follow my blog where I’ll be sharing my insights and tips on the EAP industry including stress reduction, mental health awareness and related news and trends.
