You don’t need to break the bank to make a difference...
And at a time when the UK market is facing a shortage of skilled workers, creating work environments conducive to high performance and loyalty are key to attracting, and keeping, the cream of the crop.
Deloitte’s 2018 survey on Human Capital Trends shows that as many as 88% of UK business and HR leaders are working towards the improvement of their existing wellness schemes or seeking providers of better programmes.
Because the impact a decent wellbeing programme has on the office attitude and capability is undoubtable. Whether it’s your company budget, or the question of time - for a business owner whose spending is limited in either, a decent wellbeing scheme can be a cost-effective way of ironing out many work-related issues. In particular, how to…
· reduce employee absenteeism
· improve long-term employee retention
· raise day-to-day staff performance
The purpose of a wellbeing scheme is to check all the boxes.
So, how can Growth Partners help your business?
It’s our belief that the greatest tool a business has is its people; that’s why our wellbeing scheme is a collection of handpicked resources designed to enhance engagement, and overall workforce performance, without adding to your staff’s existing workload. Not only does it benefit your team, but it stands as a great attraction to potential recruits who will be interested, beyond salary, in what care schemes are incorporated into their offer of employment.
Our Online GP service is available 24/7 and will be available to all your employees (as well as their immediate families). It’s a common complaint – whether the phone lines are engaged, or the waiting room is crowded, the current GP experience can be a cause of frustration, and the cause of extended time off. Our service resolves this, directly contributing to lower absenteeism rates. We guarantee GP availability within 3 hours maximum, a private Facetime/Skype or phone consultation, and an inclusive prescription delivery service.
Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)
Our Emotional Counsellors are trained to handle the range of personal issues that may be troubling your employees. A qualified listener, and sound advice can be the difference between a day wasted, and a day well recovered – and more simply, it’s useful for your employees to know that their place of work will not turn them away when it comes to compassion. Our Counsellors work around-the-clock, are confidential, and are here to offer practical coping strategies no matter the cause.
Fitness & Wellbeing
Not every business can offer their employees a corporate on-site gym, it’s nice – but a bit much. What is more feasible however, is a hub of industry experts and practical guidance for your staff to maintain a healthy lifestyle independently. We offer a platform of regularly updated fitness & dietary advice, online health assessments, workout resources, fantastic gym membership discounts on a nationwide scale, and much more.
Brand new to our service offering, we’ve procured a market-leading supplier to support corporate health & safety needs.
