At Hope Therapy & Counselling Services, we understand that anxiety in the workplace can have negative consequences for both employees and employers. When employees suffer from anxiety, they may struggle to perform their job effectively, which can lead to decreased productivity and increased absenteeism. Employers may also feel the impact of anxiety in the form of decreased morale, increased staff turnover, and higher recruitment and training costs.
To support the mental health of your most important asset, it is essential to provide access to mental health support and employee wellbeing services. This can include an Employee Welfare Programme (EWP) or an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) that provides employees with confidential and short-term clinical support within an organisational setting. By providing support for mental health and wellbeing, employers can promote resiliency, increase work-life balance, improve staff retention, boost productivity, and increase employee satisfaction.
Anxiety in the workplace is a significant issue that should not be ignored. 1 in 4 people in England experience a mental health problem each year, and an estimated 1 in 6 experience common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. Moreover, 17 million working days were lost due to work-related stress, anxiety, and depression in 2020/21 in the UK. The impact of this can be devastating for both employees and employers.
At Hope Therapy & Counselling Services, we provide Employee Coaching, Employment Counselling, E-Learning, Employment Mediation, and Executive Mindfulness services to help organisations support their employees’ mental health and wellbeing. Our team of clinical professionals surpass professional standards and understand the importance of offering short-term clinical support within an organisational setting.
By providing mental health support and employee wellbeing services, organisations can attract new employees when hiring and retain existing employees. More and more employees and potential employees expect to see staff counselling as an integral part of the company’s health and wellbeing strategy. As a result, investing in mental health support and employee wellbeing is essential for any organisation that wants to remain competitive and support the mental health of their most important asset.
At Hope Therapy & Counselling Services, we remain nimble and highly flexible, allowing us to offer a cost-effective, collaborative, and ethical real-world solution for your employee welfare needs. We understand both the corporate needs of the organisation and the welfare needs of your employees, and our commitment is to deliver clinical and wellbeing services designed to support both.
