There is a unique culture within every business, no matter what the size and it’s important to understand there is no one size fits all strategy to support you. Your company’s strategy needs to be fit for purpose, not only for the needs of your team but for your business itself.
Whilst some companies understand their requirement to meet HSE guidelines for managing stress in the workplace, many don’t realise the benefits for them as a business in providing proactive wellbeing support for their teams.
Some companies will use an Employee Support Programme (EAP) to provide counselling for team members once they have triggered signs of stress, anxiety or depression but, what if you had the culture, knowledge and support, to help your team before they reach this point?
Many companies have ‘wellbeing’ support outside an EAP such as providing their team with a gym membership, cycle to work schemes and health insurance but seem to miss the fact that, if their teams lack resilience and are unsure about how best to manage their mental health, then they risk low staff engagement, high absence rates and poor productivity.
NO TIME LIKE NOW® steps into your shoes to understand the issues you face and, working with you and your team, develop robust, holistic strategies that meet the needs of your team and your business.
