More forward thinking employers and business owners are now focused on the mental wellbeing of their employees through a programme of Employee Engagement.
This can take the form of an Employee Assistance Programme which may well be sourced and paid for as an addition to other employee benefits such as medical insurance and hospital plans. An EAP offers telephone counseling to employees seeking advice on a number of issues including stress and health.
WPA (Western Provident Association) offers an Employee Assistance Programme as standard on their corporate Private Medical Insurance policies and our Corporate Paid/Corporate Voluntary Paid Cash-Plans. This means that the employer can be assured that the staff has access to counseling as well as the many other benefits on these types of policies. For example on our Corporate Paid Cash-Plan the EAP is one of the many benefits along with dental, optical, therapies and NHS car-parking that can be covered for as little as £1 per week.
