The start of a new year tends to be the time that many of us take stock of the state of our lives. Why else would we make all those shiny new year resolutions?
Unsurprisingly, it’s also a time where organisations take stock of the state of their business, examining their financial and organisational health as they enter the second half of the financial year.
What is surprising though, is how many organisations fail to recognise the importance of workplace wellbeing in this process of review. Because, focusing on workplace wellbeing can deliver huge benefits to every organisation, increasing productivity, performance and profit.
Why You Should Prioritise Workplace Wellbeing
If you’re looking to improve the performance of your organisation in 2019, you need to prioritise workplace wellbeing. Did you know that your organisation could save $5.81 for every $1 invested in employee health and wellbeing? That’s a great return, no matter your business.
Workplace wellbeing can have a huge impact on organisational productivity, retention, reputation and performance, so it makes financial sense to consider investing in workplace wellbeing in 2019. The best way to do this is to engage an Employer Assistance Provider (EAP) to guide your organisation to improved health and wellbeing, as well as a healthier bottom line.
An EAP delivers significant returns for your organisation by assessing current organisational health and wellbeing, developing targeted programs, providing professional counselling services, delivering effective training, reporting on progress, recognising trends, identifying future issues and supporting your organisation through times of change and transformation.
Investing in an experienced EAP, such as Hunterlink, is an investment in the future of your organisation – for 2019 and beyond.
Why Choose Hunterlink as Your EAP?
Hunterlink is an award-winning, not for profit organisation, committed to assisting organisations and their employees achieve lasting health and wellbeing. With a focus on early intervention, our mission is to develop a culture of wellbeing in our partner organisations, where employees are supported to succeed, encouraged to seek help and contribute to the success of the business.
As our CEO, Gavin Kelso, stated recently, “I always say that if we can help one person a year we’ve had a successful year. In the last year we’ve helped thousands of people.” We don’t define success in dollar terms or by the size of our client list or by how many cases we take on.
Our success is defined by the positive impact we leave on individuals and their organisations. Our focus is on making a positive difference, sharing our expertise to improve workplace wellbeing and increasing organisational performance.
In other words, our success is dependent on yours. It’s that simple.
Why Hunterlink is a Different Type of EAP
Apart from our unique take on what success means to us, there are other reasons why Hunterlink is a different type of EAP.
We focus on early intervention and prevention
We offer a range of early intervention programs and initiatives to identify, address and prevent workplace wellbeing issues before they become serious. For instance, our Toolbox Talks give your teams the practical tools and resources to improve both themselves and their environment.
Our focus on specific industries sets us apart
While we operate across 20 industries, we only work with organisations within industries we intimately know and understand. This way, we provide you with specialised knowledge and expertise, to increase the chances of a positive return on your investment.
We don’t cap our sessions - ever
Because we are here to help your employees and your organisation, we don’t cap the number of sessions or phone calls we offer – ever. We believe in being here for you and your staff, for however long you need us and our unique business model reflects this commitment.
We’re not for profit
Seriously – we’re not in it for the money. Operating with funding from peak industry groups, we are here to help. We don’t have shareholders and we don’t seek to make millions. All we want is to make a positive difference to our partner organisations and their employees. Corny but true.
We’ll help you, wherever you are
Whether you’re a local company in Newcastle, or a business with workers in remote parts of Australia or around the globe, we can help. With a growing network of partners, we can deliver the advice and support you and your workers need, when and where you need it.
