How we deliver
Create a culture that cares
When it comes to employee wellbeing, it’s all-too-easy to focus on the physical side – the coughs, colds and broken arms that keep people out of the office, or off the shop floor. But mental health should be a major cause of concern – in fact, over 13 million working days are lost every year to stress.
Stress, depression and anxiety are believed to trigger 70% of doctor visits and 85% of serious illnesses. Be the kind of employer that breaks the mental health stigma, gives people the support they need, and creates a culture that cares with an employee assistance programme that can provide support, guidance and advice.
Depending on the programme you choose, telephone or face-to-face counselling sessions are available to assist your employees with any issues, making sure everyone can reach out to someone in the way that best suits them. All our counsellors are members of, and accredited to, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
As well as accessing health and wellbeing benefits directly through our platform and app, your employees can find resources for dealing with stress and mental health issues, as well as information on other tools and services that they can use.
Your programme is fully managed by us, with a dedicated account manager to help you out with any issues you may have. We'll create an engagement strategy to spread the word on your benefits, deal with employee queries, and provide you with easy-to-follow utilisation reports.
Everything in one place
Our entire portfolio of employee benefit services are accessed through one online platform. Whether you want the full package, or just one specific service, it's all delivered through the same easy-to-use portal.

What an Employee Assistance Programme can do for you
While the costs of staff absences are well known, the hidden cost of mental health comes in the form of presenteeism – where people are physically present for their jobs, but are unable to focus because of stress, anxiety and depression. Giving your employees affordable access to mental health support means they can get the help they need when they need it most, for happier and healthier lives both in and out of work.
Even the presence of a programme helps break the stigma around mental health – it’s OK to seek help, and it’s OK to talk about it. This all contributes to that all-important workplace culture that nurtures and cares for its employees. Scroll down to find out more.
When we say engagement, we really mean happiness. Employees that are happy at work feel more loyal, do more, care more, do better, and stay with you for longer. It's that simple.
Attracting and Retaining Talent
People are changing jobs more than ever before, so if you want to attract new talent and keep it around, having an engaged and happy workforce is more important now than ever. It’s what makes you more than just the employer people settle for.
Growing a Positive Workplace Culture
There's no shortcut to a great workplace culture. One that makes a real difference to the employee experience every single day. It's not about table football and casual Fridays - it's more than that. We don't do gimmicks, we just take who you are and make it better.
