The evolution of Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP)

Traditional Employee Assistance Programmes have a utilisation rate of less than 5%, only reaching a few employees who raise their hand and ask for help. Modern Employee Assistance Programmes that embrace the digital experience support 100% of employees proactively, so they stay healthy at work and home.

Help your employees feel supported, guided, connected, recognised and rewarded with the Total Wellbeing Platform.

The Wellbeing Cycle e-book

Total employee well-being is a strategy in which you support workers in every aspect of their lives. From physical ill health and depression, to a family bereavement and spiralling debts, these are all issues which must be resolved.

Why do these concern you as an employer?

Well, employees who have the support, guidance, and advice they need to achieve physical, mental, and emotional health are far more productive at work. It’s simple, you look after them, and they look after your business.
