Workplace Wellness Matters

According to Safe Work Australia, 92% of serious work-related mental health condition claims were attributed to mental stress. And a recent Head’s Up report revealed that 91% of Australian employees believe mentally healthy workplaces are important, but only 52% of Australian employees believe their workplace is mentally healthy.

“Australian employees expect mental health support in the workplace environment, but many are not aware of, or are unable to access appropriate resources.” Heads Up / Beyond Blue - State of the Workplace Mental Health in Australia

Regardless of whether mental stress is related to work or personal issues, an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) can provide the critical support that employees may need to proactively address their mental stress before it escalates.

Employee Assistance Program

An EAP is a workplace wellness program that is offered by the employer but facilitated by an independent provider. The EAP is designed to confidentially assist employees with a range of issues in a variety of ways.

WorkPlacePLUS offers a holistic, fully integrated EAP incorporating mental, emotional and physical health education. Our EAP’s are positioned to deliver innovative, best practice and proactive solutions. Our service delivery model takes into account the four areas of wellness:

  • Psychological Health

  • Physical Health

  • Lifestyle

  • Working Environment

Employee Assistance for Aged Care workers

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety has been a challenging time for aged care service providers and their staff. Providing emotional and psychological support to employees during this period is critical for individual employees’ wellbeing and ensuring the managing of a business-as-usual approach.

To assist aged care employees to deal with any distress they may be experiencing, WorkPlacePLUS has partnered with both LASA and ACSA to provide members with an Employee Assistance Program.

LASA & ACSA members receive a 50% discount on the starting rate for WorkPlacePLUS Employee Assistance services.

Call Anna at WorkPlacePLUS on 0419 533 434 and mention you are a LASA or ACSA member to take advantage of this special member entitlement.
