Should you Offer a Counselling Service to your Employees?
Just as employee volunteering can yield numerous benefits for both the workforce and the organisation, providing access to counselling can transform the workplace into a more supportive and thriving environment.
How can an employee volunteering programme add value to your business?
Providing a workplace volunteering programme is more than just a way to give back to a local charity, it is also an important element of supporting employee wellbeing. The benefits are far reaching and can have an impact on the long term success of your business.
With large EAP providers, the costs are often prohibitive for SMEs or third sector organisations so we aim to make what we offer affordable. Our current rates are frozen until April 2023 and range from £300 to £2100 per year depending on the level of cover and the number of employees. By paying these small annual retainers, we are able to provide businesses with expedited access to the counselling/psychotherapy service for staff which means that they can access support when they need it, either in person or online.
Studies show that this kind of investment in employees, not only builds loyalty but it also helps create a healthier working environment overall – leading to increased productivity and improved team morale. Investing in an EAP with Healing for the Heart not only provides you with numerous benefits both economically and culturally - improving relationships amongst staff members while creating a positive work culture where everyone feels supported at all times, it also helps us to support people in local communities who struggle with poor mental health. Not only are you making improvements in your own business but you are helping local communities too.
Are you a small to medium-sized business looking for ways to increase employee morale, productivity, and loyalty? If so, then an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) may be the solution. EAPs are designed to provide employees with access to mental health services and resources that can help them better manage personal issues or work-related stressors
