A family break-up. Difficulty with depression. Struggles with debt. Your employees bring so much more to work over and above themselves and the skills you employed them for. And, while some things they can manage, others might seem too much to cope with.
With an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) in place, they can get help with the things that are affecting them right from the start – before their everyday stresses begin to influence their wellbeing and productivity.
An EAP can have a number of benefits for your business and your team. For your employees, it can be reassuring to know that they have someone to speak to, no matter what is on their mind. It can also show your commitment to supporting their mental health and wellbeing, which can help with staff retention and productivity. Providing support through an EAP can also help to reduce the amount of absenteeism within your business, as your team is able to access help and support quickly.
Our EAP cover option is only available as part of a healthcare cover plan when chosen with at least one other cover option.
Julia’s accountancy business has eight employees. She’s always aimed for an open and honest culture within her team and likes to think that her staff will talk to her when things aren’t adding up in their personal lives. However, Julia knows that there are many things that people find it hard to talk about with someone they know, let alone with their employer. And she knows that the demands of running a small business sometimes take their toll on her, too.
Julia has an Employee Assistance Programme included as part of her small business healthcare cover. Her staff have someone independent to talk to about their worries and concerns. And she can also reach out when she needs to.
Regardless of the cover options that you choose, you'll have access to the following included as standard:
