Employment Assistance Health Benefits

Work-related stress and personal concerns such as marital or family problems, alcohol abuse or drug misuse can affect almost anyone at any given time. As a result, an employee’s performance can be impaired, leading to lower productivity, strained relations with co-workers and frequent absences or accidents. In addition to this, emotional stress can develop into stress-related illnesses, which can in turn cause employees to require time off work to attend doctors’ and hospital appointments. They may even need long-term sick leave. Ideally, employment assistance would be provided before the employee’s difficulties lead to them being absent from work, resulting in less disruption to your organisation. Alternatively, employees who are already absent from work can be assessed and helped to return to work as soon as possible. Glister’s employment services can assist with a variety of work-related issues and personal concerns. By helping employees to balance their work responsibilities and any personal problems, our services enable them to function fully and to the best of their abilities.

“Kerry helped me at a time when I felt lost, anxious about the future and was at a really low point in my life. My difficulty in communicating with close ones made meant I felt isolated and alone. With regular sessions in a relatively short space of time Kerry was able to support me in making positive life changes and become a better person as a result by helping me to work on areas I had shied away from previously. I’m now looking to the future in a more positive frame of mind and can express my emotions much better with my friends and loved ones, meaning I no longer feel I am carrying any worries on my own.”
