One of Fermilab’s newest additions is here to help on both sides of the house. Kathy Burke, Fermilab’s new Employee Assistance Program on-site counselor, can provide guidance to managers and a range of counseling services to employees.
Burke is an account manager for Employee Resources Systems, the new contractor to provide EAP services to the laboratory. She will be on site from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays.
Burke, who has worked with EAP organizations for the past 16 years, has more than 20 years of experience in the field of mental health. She started as a counselor when she joined Employee Resources Systems, and has continued to expand her role within the company.
As the onsite EAP provider for Fermilab, Burke is looking forward to getting to know the laboratory and its employees.
“I’d like to get a better appreciation for the people who work here and the work that they do,” Burke said.
Learning about and helping the Fermilab population will also help ERS get a clearer picture for how things work at the laboratory.
To make an appointment during Burke’s office hours, employees can contact her at x3591. Employees can speak to someone and receive counseling services on other days or after hours 24/7 by calling (800) 292-2780.
