Ceridian has launched an employee assistance programme (EAP) mobile application (app) for employers to provide counselling support for employees.
The human capital management and services provider has partnered LifeWorks to produce the app in the UK, following a launch in the US.
The app, which is available to download on all smartphones, includes:
- 24/7 LifeWorks consultancy telephone support.
- Crisis management in emergency situations.
- Staff counselling.
- Absence management.
- Online services.
Iain Campbell, head of LifeWorks at Ceridian, said: “Some employees are uncomfortable requesting support services in person or over the phone. Others simply prefer the convenience of accessing resources and tools online when they need them.
“The LifeWorks mobile app ensures employees are able to access information and request the EAP services they need in a way that feels safe and comfortable for them.”
