Atlas Healthcare talks about wellbeing at FHRD conference

Employee wellbeing took centre stage at the Atlas Healthcare stand during the Foundation for Human Resources Development (FHRD) annual conference, held recently.

‘Let’s talk about wellbeing’ was the theme of the stand, said Atlas Healthcare Manager, Claudine Gauci.

She added: “The FHRD annual conference is a great event to promote our benefits and this year we focused on the benefits of Global Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) provided by AXA ICAS International. EAPs can be an important tool for the HR manager of any organisation, as they support corporate wellness programmes by enhancing the wellbeing of employees.”

“The services provided by ICAS include an unlimited 24/7 personal support line with direct access to psychologists, local face-to-face counselling, local legal and financial helplines and support for HR and line managers. Most importantly, confidentiality is guaranteed,” added Ms Gauci.

EAP programmes are known for a number of benefits, including reduction in absenteeism, staff turnover and healthcare costs. They help employees and their family members cope with both personal and work issues and increase productivity, engagement and return on investment for your business. All counselling is provided by masters’ level clinicians.

During the month of October, Atlas Group employees are dressing down to promote mental health awareness and are also sporting mental health badges all month long to project the importance of mental health in all aspects of life. In addition, a talk for all employees on mindfulness was organized as part of the programme of activities.
