Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs)
Stress and other illnesses have an impact on individuals’ work performance, costing your company in sick leave and underachievement. Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) help protect your staff investment, promoting wellbeing in the workplace by providing solutions for the human problems that affect your business. Manage Health enables employers and their employees to access a trusted source of information, advice and counselling if required.
One of our specialist areas is in the provision of Employee Assistance Programmes. There is a freephone telephone advice, information and counselling telephone service which offers immediate support to employers and their employees in the UK and internationally 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This enables the opportunity to talk in confidence from work or home and anonymously if desired.
It’s a common fact that employees work better if they feel better about
themselves. Many companies, whether small or large, now realise that the wellbeing of their employees is at least as important as profit and customer service. Manage Health organise Wellbeing Events to appeal to all types of different workforces emphasising the importance of nurturing staff wellbeing. These events include:
● Bespoke one-day to long-term events
● Onsite health screening
● Health quizzes
● Delivery of fresh fruit and other healthier food onsite
● Onsite masseur
● Pedometer distribution
● Lunch & Learn seminars about the importance of hydration, vitality & nutrition
As one of our key specialist areas, Health Screening provides employers and employees with an excellent opportunity to detect disease and health issues in their early stages. It is one of the most popular employee benefits available.
There are “full” screens, health and fitness screens, and those more specific, such as heart risk assessment, breast, cervical smear testing, prostate or osteoporosis risk checking. The providers of these services normally operate from their own specifically designed centres, using state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, under qualified medical and clinical supervision.
A Health Screening or health assessment is an excellent way to understand your current health status and wellbeing, and can also help to identify areas of risk in the future, regardless of how healthy or unhealthy you may be.
In the UK, over 13 million working days are lost every year because of
stress. Work-related stress is a major problem for businesses and organisations across the UK and accounts for over a third of all new incidences of ill health. According to research commissioned by the HSE, around 500,000 people in the UK experience work-related stress and at a level they believe is making them ill. This can have major impacts on other elements of business such as productivity, organisational image, health and safety and morale.
Dealing with stress-related claims also consumes vast amounts of management time. Aside from the obvious humanitarian and ethical considerations, there are strong economic and financial reasons for organisations to manage and reduce stress at work.
Whatever numbers or statistics are quoted, the cost to an organisation of not tackling stress and its effect on both the individual and the organisation are colossal.
The health audits Manage Health offer have been designed to provide a full independent examination of your organisation’s systems for health management purposes.
In particular, they help organisations like yours to identify how you could better target your investment spend on employees’ health and wellbeing initiatives.
By using our audit service, your organisation will not only be able to identify areas of high risk within its operation but also reduce potential losses. A health audit will provide you with an indication of the risks that your employees face in the workplace.
