Right size, Right fit
In light of the coronavirus pandemic, boutique facilities management provider Anabas looks inward to ensure employees are being as well cared for as possible. The company launched its new employee assistance programme (EAP) to staff via webinar to begin with immediate effect.
The corporate office FM specialist has been working on an employee wellbeing programme for several months and made the decision to accelerate the launch of an EAP to provide extended support to its team during such unprecedented times. The programme, provided through Health Assured, was implemented to ensure positive wellbeing is a part of culture both at HQ and on the frontline. The new EAP is also available to families of employees.
Respecting the privacy of employees and their families, the EAP provides a confidential 24/7, 365-day helpline. It provides advice and support on legal, financial, medical and other personal issues for staff who may be struggling in such times of uncertainty. Anabas staff and their families can have individual counselling sessions, and there is unlimited access to online information including podcasts and downloads covering a wide variety of health-related topics.
The boutique FM provider has also launched a range of e-learning programmes about cleaning and hygiene to support staff in staying safe and healthy during the current pandemic.
Alistair Craig, Managing Director at Anabas said:
“Our staff are our biggest asset and their safety and wellbeing is absolutely paramount. One of Anabas’ main focuses for 2020 is employee physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, and we have been working on developing a new employee welfare package for some time. It was critical that we accelerated the go-live to support our staff when they need it most.
My sincerest thanks go to all our staff at Anabas who have worked tirelessly to help us and our clients to remain safe and healthy during this time. The support they have all shown in these last couple of weeks is fantastic and I couldn’t be more proud of the entire Anabas Family. We really have lived up to our value of being ‘there for each other.”
