Are you wanting to support your employees? Do you see value in increasing your Employee Benefits offering?
Throughout their time with you, employees will go through a range of issues, causes from both inside and outside the workplace. Remember – your staff are humans too! No one is infallible against illness, the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship, bullying or financial hardship. Change is inevitable – having children, moving house, workplace re-structures, technology and the society we live in.
So how do you, as a business owner or Manager, support your staff through these issues?
Many companies will enlist an Employee Assistance Program provider. A yearly retainer is paid, and staff can access various services as they need. Unfortunately, the uptake of these services can be as low as 5% per annum, making investment a challenge for small to medium sized businesses.
This is where Human Angle can help, with our Human Support Program.
As a qualified and registered Counsellor, I can be there for your staff as and when required. My relationship starts with you, the employer. You have someone to call. When your staff need support, we agree to how many sessions to start with (usually 6) and I then work with your employee in a confidential relationship.
Because I have a 12 year career in Human Resources, I can better understand both yours and your staff members challenges.
Outcomes of this type of relationship might include:
- Higher staff engagement
- Noticeable positive changes in mood, behaviour and morale
- Stronger relationship and respect between employee and yourself
- Increased productivity
- Increased retention
- Positive reputation
If this is something you might be interested in exploring, please give me a call or an email. I’ll come and meet with you, and we can take it from there. There are no upfront fees, costs or obligations – what have you got to lose?
