Just as you look after your patient’s health and wellbeing, Lloyd & Whyte have always worked hard to look after your financial health. However, we want to extend that aspect of care to cover more than just financial planning.
We also want to support you in managing your own physical, mental and social wellbeing and the welfare of colleagues, because your Wellbeing Matters to us as well. It’s never been more important to look after yourselves and your families, than right now. That’s where our Wellbeing Matters programme comes in.
We have launched a range of health and wellbeing-based products and services for individuals and businesses; supporting you to feel better at home and at work.
Portal for online access 24/7
Our free Wellbeing Matters portal gives you and your employees easy, 24/7 access to over 200 hours of content, including blogs, articles, and advice, in addition to seminars, workshops, through to videos and podcasts, covering a wide range of topics such as mental health, nutrition and diet, recipes, demos, and fitness plans, and information, designed for all levels. You can even track your own fitness and daily activity, plus eating patterns and calory intake. You can also benefit from lifestyle e-learning. The platform offers smart searching to easily access the content you are looking for, which you can then easily organise; where you want it, how you want it, because we appreciate that your time is precious.
According to Spectrum Life, a leading provider of Employee Assistance programs;
- 49% of employees lose an hour of productivity or more each day due to stress
- Almost half of all employees cite stress and personal issues as the most common reason for absence
- Companies lose as much as £611.00 per employee annually due to unscheduled absenteeism.
To combat these risks, many employers provide EAPs that include assessment, short-term problem resolution and referral services for employees and their families. These services provide tremendous benefits for employers, including lower medical costs, reduced turnover and absenteeism, higher employee productivity and improved employee engagement. Having an EAP also demonstrates to employees that their employer cares about their health and well-being.
Now more than ever, we recognise that everyone needs support, no matter who you are.
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is there to proactively help you, your family, your employees and their families and your members with access to confidential telephone counsellors available 24/7 and the option to arrange face to face consultations, which currently take place via a video conference call.
We can provide a broad range of mental health promotion activities and events to help prioritise and support your mental wellbeing, something that is particularly relevant during such challenging times.
