Organisations and team members have all experienced an extended and heightened period of change and stress during the pandemic.
Many are juggling the demands of flexible, hybrid or remote working with their family and personal responsibilities, and the cracks are beginning to show.
As for expatriates, they add another layer of complexity to the mix. Far away from home and family, they need to adapt to different business cultures and lifestyles, whilst also delivering results at work. It’s no wonder that expats often experience a higher level of stress and family pressure, even if they enjoy their host country and company. The toll on workers’ emotional, mental and physical health is real, leading to lower performance, higher absenteeism and disengagement – all of which impacts your business.
Happy Consults helps companies
The effectiveness of online support (be it therapy or coaching) has been proven many times over the past 10 years*.
Patients love the fact it is easy to use and gets both immediate and longer-term results that make life at work and at home a happier experience.
Companies love the fact that with executive talent at a premium, offering employees ongoing well-being programmes and specific, individual assistance when needed delivers increased motivation, engagement and better business results.
You need to ensure your company is attracting the best talent and stopping the flow of people thinking about ‘the great resignation’. Key team members are expensive to replace and losing someone can set a team back for months.
Productivity is not just about driving people harder, but supporting them to get results and be happy and engaged at work.
