Offer third-party counselling to your staff

Menopause is often gruelling for staff.

And while you want to support them, it’s unlikely you’re trained to guide them through psychological or physical symptoms. That’s why many employers use an employee assistance programme to outsource specialist support.

With Peninsula’s EAP, your staff have round-the-clock access to:

  • A 24-hour medical line – so employees can always reach out to a trained nurse about their symptoms.
  • In-person counselling – face-to-face sessions with a qualified counsellor to manage any emotional difficulties.
  • Online support – give your team access to specialist wellbeing tools and resources to manage their mental health.

Because when staff feel supported at work, they’ll repay you with loyalty, productivity, and more.
