Employers should offer a variety of benefits that will help foster wellbeing and ensure they're easily accessible. Through a dedicated engagement portal, like Hive360's, employees can access a myriad of benefits and services, from Gym and retail discounts to mental health support and access to GP's all from a mobile device in the palm of their hand.
Focusing on education as a way to assist your employees' financial wellbeing is a powerful tool. Research shows that problems in the home often make their way into the office. Try to help your employees get a better understanding of debt, and budgeting, along with other money related topics as part of a broader employee offering.
Employee assistance programs are a great tool to assist with employee mental health, and fit well into a broader 'employee wellbeing strategy.' Offering these types of assistance programs via an engagement portal is a perfect solution. There is (unfortunately) still much stigma surrounding mental health, and while more people are opening up, some still want to keep their troubles private. Offering support via a portal allows your employees to keep their problems private, but still have access to the help they need, when they need it.
