Beyond Benefits

Oregon State University cares about the health and well-being of its employees. As a part of OSU’s Culture of Care, Human Resources is excited to introduce a new employee assistance program (EAP) called Beyond Benefits*.  Beyond Benefits will replace Cascade Centers EAP effective July 1, 2020, and will provide extensive resources for employees while also delivering cost savings for OSU during this time of budget challenges without reducing employee benefits.  

Beyond Benefits provides resources across life events and seeks to provide impactful, holistic solutions at times they are most needed. Areas of focus include family needs, financial needs, mental/emotional support needs and legal needs. Employees will have access to robust online resources including online communities and on-demand learning programs. 

The EAP is available to Graduate Assistants, Post-Doc Scholars, Classified Staff, Academic Faculty, Professional Faculty and their household members. Employees will be able to access Beyond Benefits support by phone, online or through a mobile app. Beyond Benefits consultants also are available to create personalized action plans related to individual employee needs.

*OSU has contracted with a new EAP provider Guidance Resources. We have the opportunity to brand the new EAP program and choose our own name for this comprehensive set of services now available to employees. We chose the name OSU Beyond Benefits.
