a partnership with LifeSpeak Inc. to incorporate LifeSpeak On Demand into HRI's
existing Employee Assistance Program (EAP) suite of services. At a time when performance

library of personal finance and health and wellness resources -- giving our clients
and their employees and household family members access to a growing library of
expert-led support and learning topics that span both professional and personal
issues. Allowing employees to take advantage of these engaging and informative programs,
at their discretion, removes the barriers to access that sometimes stifle employee
support and improvement programs."

Each topic is lead by a subject-matter expert and includes six, 6-10 minute modules,
