In an ideal world, every employee would be able to leave their personal life at home and focus 100% on their job. The reality is that, whether it’s personal debt, divorce, care issues, workplace bullying or anxiety about managing others, employees distracted by worries or concerns cannot perform fully at work.
Committed to working in partnership with HR to measurably improve the value of people to the organisation, Validium can help you boost productivity by supporting your people with our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). This provides employees with 24/7 confidential access to fully accredited counsellors and information specialists.
The health and ability of your workers to attend and perform at work is one of your most important business drivers. It pays to energise workers and invest in their physical wellbeing, to motivate them to release their full potential.
Optimise Vitality leads to a more vitalised and productive workforce, reduced absence, and increased creativity. We will work with you to create a bespoke package for your organisation after consultation to understand your priorities and share benchmarking data to help you identify which health risks your organisation is at most risk of developing.
The Validium Group has the expertise to transform absent employees into productive workers. Long-term absence is a serious and expensive issue for employers.
Once an employee has been absent for six weeks, the chances of a return to work are halved, with feelings of isolation, depression and anxiety about going back often proving more debilitating than the original reason for absence.
Over half of all absent employees have been off work for more than six weeks.
Deliver Change gives you low-cost, high impact support mechanisms to provide employees with the practical and emotional support required for them to deal with and embrace change.
Telephone and online resources can be supplemented with access to specialised counsellors and onsite workshops for managers and employees, equipping them with the tools, insight and support required to take change in their stride and make dramatic changes to their way of working or way of life with confidence.
The Validium Reduce Stress solution educates managers to recognise the signs that an employee is close to the limit of their ability to handle pressure and provides them with the knowledge and the skills to offer a supportive and co-operative response.
The aim isn’t to turn managers into counsellors, but instead to teach them how to identify people in need of help and direct them towards appropriate support, before the problem escalates. Managers quickly see the benefits of a proactive response to stress, for the organisation, for themselves, for their team, and for their individual team members.
