Ahola's employee assistance program is the first
to be specifically designed for your family and your family business.

BreaktHRough® EAP

Beyond all of the benefits of a traditional EAP, BreaktHRough® EAP offers a unique suite of programs and services designed to strengthen family business workforce performance. Our exclusive family business services are designed for the family members working in the business in addition to stakeholders outside of the business. These services are delivered through a vetted group of professionals who have an expertise in family dynamics within a business structure. Such services empower family and non-family employees to confidentially deal with personal and professional problems and keep their focus on their work performance, health and overall well-being.


Join us for our next Family Business EAP Workshop: Ownership Exit Strategies
on August 24th, 2017!

You’ve created or purchased this organism that perhaps consumes you: it needs constant attention, as its parts wax and wane its customers happily need it; its employees need it,; it consumes vast amounts of cash, it generates cash, it’s hungry for growth, it needs inventory, it depends on others outside its control to keep it fed.

It is the largest asset, by far owned by the family, and it’s the most illiquid. It’s fraught with risk: has a high Owner-Dependence Index. And, it is likely the major source of the family’s income, whether comprised of salary, rent, or expenses run through it.

Our workshop is designed to present this investment from a new perspective. We’ll start with the premise that some day, and this is the key, you’ll not be in your current ownership position with respect to this business. And, this meeting can be the impetus to create a plan for your eventual COD…your Cash-Out-Date. It’s a process, not an event.

Family businesses are unique!
Traditional EAP programs function as a  “safety net,” serving to catch employees when they have significant work/life challenges. BreaktHRough® EAP offers a preventative, professional and proactive approach to managing workforce performance in your family business.

Because of the dual roles many leaders in family businesses must assume, developing and cultivating healthy relationships are critical to the longevity of their business. Family businesses that utilize the professional services of BreaktHRough® EAP have the support needed to develop these relationships, which allow them to grow and outperform other businesses that don’t. The prominence of family-owned businesses in the American landscape has a profound impact on the livelihoods of their family members, their employees within their company, and their local communities.
