Corporate Health Resources Employee Assistance Program

Name: Tanya Griego

Location: Rio Rancho, NM 

Type of Business:
Employee Assistance Program

What does your business do?
When an employer contracts with us, we provide counseling to for the employees and family members. We offer workplace training and mediation / conflict resolution. We have a clinician on staff 24/7 for emergency calls.

When and why did you start the biz?
I have worked in EAP for 15 years. The owner of our company just passed away. Since it was just the 2 of us, I know he'd want it to go on and it's an opportunity for me to make that happen.

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
Spare Bedroom

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
Critical Incident Stress Debriefing and DOT / non DOT positive drug screens being set up with a Substance Abuse Professional and taking care of the case management for our company and theirs.

What's the most fun part?
Interacting with our clients as well as our providers. They're always willing to go the extra mile and It's nice to know that you've helped someone at the end of the day.

Anything you would have done differently?
I opened this business upon the loss of my business partner. Things were not taken care of when he passed and it's been difficult to get back on my feet after a professional and personal loss.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
Respond to RFP's, advertising and building the business.

What advice do you have for others?
Make sure your business is taken care of in case something happens to you. Either leave it in a will or designate a new owner before an emergency. We never know what is going to happen to us or when. Loss is never expected. Be proactive and plan.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I'm new. I've browsed the site and intend on researching more. It looks like a great way to bring our company to Social Media as well as other marketing tools. I want to make sure that I have as many outlets as possible to market this and get it up and running. I can't wait to celebrate my first contract.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Vogue and continuing education for mediation and conflict resolution in the workplace

Prior jobs or business?
I worked managing benefits for a large insurance provider prior to moving into the field of Employee Assistance.

Favorite Food?

What are your pets' names?
Mo, Phred, Zoey, Pedro, Dixie, Dexter, Karma

Do any of these pets help with your biz?
They're rescues. It's what keeps me sane.

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
The person who owned the business prior passed away. Unfortunately it is in probate. He was amazing at his job and I want to keep it alive.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
