You chose your staff well and they are your most important resource – looking after their welfare, means looking after your business too.
Personal problems and unresolved workplace issues can have a major impact on your employees’ work and can result in prolonged sickness leave, poor performance and lack of concentration.
This adds up to a cost to your business, not just in lost working hours, also in reduced productivity or engagement.
In the NHS, workplace stress alone ‘is believed to account for over 30 per cent of sickness absence in the NHS, costing the service £300-400 million per year. The latest NHS annual survey found that over 38 per cent (36 per cent in 2016) of NHS staff reported that they had suffered from work-related stress.1
Including counselling/ psychotherapy in your employee assistance programme benefits both you as an employer – as your time will be freed up, from dealing with these issues and employee – who will welcome your support and find their job more enjoyable and rewarding.
Face to face or online counselling or psychotherapy takes only one hour a week or fortnight of (your) and employees’ valuable time.
As a qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, I have a real understanding of people’s needs, having experienced both roles – employer and employee.
Counselling and psychotherapy are not just for people in crisis, but a valuable resource to help employees with the everyday problems that we all face in life such as:
- Conflicts at home or at work
- Carer’s issues
- Family and relationship difficulties
- Anxiety, depression and stress
- Abuse and bullying
- Assertiveness and anger management
- Decision making and problem solving
- Bereavement and loss
- Addictions such as alcohol, gambling or drugs
- Confidence and self-esteem
