Mental Health problems affect one in six British workers each year (1) and mental health is the leading cause of sickness absence (2). In the UK alone, the annual cost of presenteeism, where individuals are at work but significantly less productive due to poor mental health, as well as from sickness absence and staff turnover, is estimated to be £29 billion (3).
Employee Support Services
I can help support your employees using Coaching as a tool, to work through staff members’ individual challenges, helping them to create a plan to overcome them, and to set goals in both their work and private lives. This can help them to feel like they are in control, and help create and nurture a more focused and happy workforce.
Sessions can be held at your place of work, or externally, at a time and place to suit your staff, with the content of the sessions remaining confidential between the staff member and myself.
Support is provided through face-to-face sessions (depending on location) and/or on-line meetings / calls, using Skype, Zoom, FaceTime etc.
If you feel this could benefit your organisation, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
