With the outbreak of the COVID-19, all Australians are challenged with the emotional and psychological stress of uncertainty in an ever-changing working and living environment. The impact has been on all aspects of life; working, social (both family and friends) and economic.

If your staff are frontline staff, they may harbour fears of exposure. Or if they are in a non-essential industry, they might be stressing about the financial uncertainty and what’s next?

In times like these, no matter what industry, you need to be proactive in checking on the welfare of your staff. You also need to provide an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for your employees to get help.

At Recovery Partners, our team of Psychologists and Counsellors are here to answer your calls and complete the Psychological Welfare Assessments your staff need. Our experienced team are available nationally 24/7 for your people to talk to should they be experiencing stress, anxiety, emotional distress or concerns. Whether it is about exposure or isolation, we are ready to listen.

We can support your team’s well-being both at home and at work.

For more information or to implement an EAP service contact us 1300 OHS RTW (647 789) or enquiries@rrp.com.au

Stay safe!
