Leading Irish nursing home provider Mowlam Healthcare has launched an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP).
The 24/7 Employee Assist and Wellbeing programme, in partnership with SpectrumLife, is a confidential, free counselling and wellbeing support service designed to support employees and their immediate family members.
Through a freephone helpline, live chat, WhatsApp, SMS and email, employees can access advice, customised online services, specialist information on health and wellbeing and structured counselling.
John O’Neill, Head of Human Resource, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has been and continues to be an ongoing significant challenge for our team members around the country. We are committed to promoting positive mental wellbeing and resilience within Mowlam Healthcare so adding an Employee Assistance Programme, to the range of health and wellbeing initiatives we offer, has been a natural progression.
“Our EAP is more than just a counselling service and will offer excellent ongoing support and advice. It will also provide our employees with a wide range of practical day-to-day issues such as access to financial advice, advice on legal issues, career guidance, life coaching, mediation information, consumer advice, advice on childcare and eldercare and support for non-Irish nationals settling into Ireland.”
Alison Kelly, Employee Relations & Communications Manager, added: “The service also offers all of our employees a Mowlam Healthcare Digital Wellbeing Platform. This will include lots of wellbeing content which is refreshed regularly and covers topics such as diet, nutrition, fitness, free e-learning courses on mental health and much more.
“We are also launching a rewards and discounts service for all Mowlam Healthcare employees as part of this initiative. This will offer Mowlam employees many discounts across a wide range of Irish stores, supermarkets, clothing websites, cinema tickets, restaurants, hotels and much more.”
