Pentagon Technical Services Launch Employee Assistance Programme
Modern life is becoming much more instant and convenient in so many ways. But that doesn’t mean it’s getting any easier. In fact, the opposite seems to be true.
Today, people feel under immense pressure both inside and outside of work. This pressure deeply affects employees’ productivity. It can reduce morale. And it could potentially cause long-term sickness absence.
PTS are excited to share with you where we are with this programme as the health and wellbeing of our team members is paramount.
We are therefore proud to offer an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), for all employees who are UK citizens or reside in the UK, delivered by Health Assured – the UK and Ireland’s leading wellbeing provider.
What is an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)?
An EAP is a confidential employee benefit designed to help you deal with personal and professional problems that could be affecting your home life or work life, health, and general wellbeing.
Our EAP service provides a complete support network that offers expert advice and compassionate guidance 24/7, covering a wide range of issues. We strongly believe in providing an EAP service that offers not only reactive support when someone needs it but also proactive and preventative support to deliver the best possible outcomes.
With Health Assured there really is a better way. By balancing everyday life with the requirements of work and home can create pressures for all of us. Work is a large part of people’s lives. With increasing working hours as well as technological developments to support remote working, it is vital to ensure that there is a productive, healthy environment that is conducive to a healthy lifestyle.
