Employee Assistance Programme from Gemelli Employee Benefits

Confidential Support & Advice for Life’s Challenges...
Introducing Gemelli's Employee Assistance Programme. It’s an understatement to say that modern life can be complicated. Work, family, relationships, finances, health and much more besides, there’s a lot to juggle. Even when everything is going well, balancing all of these areas can be demanding, and it doesn’t take much to upset the equilibrium; a problem at home or at work can cause worry and stress, and can escalate quickly if not addressed. At some time or another, we’ve probably all been guilty of ignoring a problem, pasting on a false smile and telling people everything is fine, when really it’s not. Taking this approach only serves to prolong things and make them worse – either in reality, or in our perception. 

Whether an issue is work-related or personal, a good part of the solution will usually involve talking it through with someone who can offer advice and support. Depending on the nature of the problem however, finding someone who is knowledgeable and impartial may not always be easy. Gemelli’s Employee Assistance Programme ensures that access to professional, confidential support and advice on a wide range of practical and emotional issues is only ever a phone call away.

How the Scheme Works
Gemelli’s Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is a company-paid benefit that employers can provide free of charge to staff. It enables employees – and their immediate family, to access impartial advice and counselling on work and non-work related issues in strictest confidence. 

A 24/7 telephone support line manned by highly qualified professionals provides expertise on many topics. These are just some of the areas covered – employees can contact their EAP for support on anything that matters to them. As well as helping employees, an EAP can also supplement an organisation’s HR function by highlighting prevalent trends or issues, areas of concern, and training needs.
