About The Sand Creek Group
Sand Creek Group, Ltd. is a women-owned, small business EAP founded on the values of its owners Gretchen M. Stein, Ph.D., CEAP, and Joan Sirotiak, MA, CEAP. These women live lives of selfless service, love, and dedication to making this world a better place for those who need warm support and professional guidance in the most difficult times of their lives. They have created a group of top level EAP professional staff and consultants who embrace these values and have been called to this work. The Sand Creek Group is a General Services Administration (GSA) multi-schedule holder and a Targeted Group Business.
Caring and Compassionate Service
Sand Creek Group, Ltd. prides itself on being an employee assistance program that provides superior, responsive professional help and personalized, compassionate service. The values of the organization embrace confidentiality, sensitivity to the concerns of its clients, and a fundamental goodness that places the needs of the client first.
Sand Creek uses the most effective, proven model for delivering employee assistance services available. The model is designed around skilled professional counselors providing face-to-face counseling services in a clinical setting. Clients can discuss their problems in privacy and with confidence that they will be served by the providing clinician or referred to another appropriate provider if more specialized support is needed. Sand Creek in not simply a phone counseling service or help line. Up to 10,000 professional counselors form a nation-wide network of service providers who are available to deliver personal care and support to its clients in a local community setting.
We Form Partnerships
Sand Creek Group, Ltd. sees itself as a partner when working with its customers in providing employee assistance services. We provide only employee assistance programs and as a result are not encumbered with trying to sell or broker other programs or related services. As a result we are in a position to customize our contracts to meet the unique needs of the employee group with which we are working. Jim Mulder, Executive Director of the Association of Minnesota Counties, states it this way; “Sand Creek is my partner not my vendor. They have become a vital piece of our organization.”
Whether it is in fulfilling an important component of an organization’s risk management program or in simply providing the highest level of professional employee counseling services, Sand Creek dedicates itself to taking into account your organizational culture, employee needs, and service requirements to ensure your EAP is both effective and affordable.
Sand Creek Group, Ltd. is an industry leader in providing superior quality and customized employee assistance programs. No wonder Dun and Bradstreet’s Open Rating Performance Review has given this EAP its highest rating for performance.
