Employee Assistance Programmes
Thomas Carroll Independent Financial Advisers can help you develop an Employee Assistance Programme that is based entirely on your needs.
Psychological illness is now the number one cause of absence in the UK, with one in every four workers experiencing depression, anxiety, or stress at any one time. Psychological health issues remain somewhat taboo, and employees are often unaware of the support available to them. If employees fail to receive the expert clinical support they need, their productivity and performance may suffer, with an inevitable effect on your bottom line.
For you to benefit from a productive and healthy workforce, your employees need to have fast access to appropriate support when life becomes challenging. The sooner they get the support, the faster they can be back to their best performance at work.
A well-promoted Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) can quickly and effectively tackle psychological health, with measurable results. Group life* and income protection schemes* often include an EAP but a standalone scheme will offer you a more comprehensive range of services which may include:
- Unlimited telephone support for health issues
- Telephone support and online access for information on a range of ‘everyday’ issues such as financial, legal, consumer, family care and housing issues
- Face to face counselling sessions as clinically appropriate. All face to face and complex cases are assessed and treatment directed by a psychologist
- Counselling via email
- An extensive range of promotional materials to encourage employee engagement
We would be delighted to review your current arrangements and discuss the benefits of an effective Employee Assistance Programme with you. Whatever the nature of the review, as a Chartered Financial Adviser, you can be assured that we will provide a solution that is based entirely on your needs.
