How do our Employee Assistance Programmes help?
About 1 in 6 workers struggle with their mental health at some point during their career. The statistics concerning the prevalence of stress are even more staggering, with some estimates saying as much as 76% of employees struggle with the condition at work.
Employers have a duty of care to ensure that workers have access to mental health support in the workplace. The practice of doing so becomes increasingly difficult as the prevalence of hybrid working increases; employees who are never or rarely physically present can suffer in silence. The same can be said of remote workers.
Although in-house training is possible, it is hard to find convenient slots during busy work schedules. Part-time staff can struggle to access the sessions, meaning they are disproportionally disadvantaged.
Employee Assistance Programmes aim to combat these problems and provide mental health support in the workplace.
What are Employee Assistance Programmes?
Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) are online digital platforms that allow your employees to access mental health support whenever and wherever they are.
We provide a comprehensive package of support for employees, leveraging Lifework’s market-leading platform to offer resources on all aspects of mental health, including stress and anxiety; it also includes features that allow you to find counselling through an app or website if more involved help is needed–and sharing updates with team members has never been easier!
LifeWorks tailors its wellness programs to your people’s needs, enabling them not only to be their best but also to have a more fulfilling and creative life at work.
Our accessible mobile platform provides the tools that help you achieve total well-being – mental, physical, financial, social and emotional all in one place; leaving no stone unturned when it comes to improving any aspect of someone’s day-to-day experience from hiring right up until retirement.
In addition, to further build resilience and promote mindfulness across your team we offer MyMindPal to complement our EAP solutions. To find the right solution for your business, speak to one of our benefits consultants.
