LifeWorks’ service means that we can confidently recommend that both employees and line managers make contact and work through their issues supported by the wide range of professional experts available.VP HR, global consumer goods organisation

Support on short-term issues affecting work and life.

Online resources & communications
Online resource always accessible at lifeworks.com
Your employees and their families can access our comprehensive online resource lifeworks.com, which provides practical and support information in the form of articles, podcasts, booklets, a health encyclopaedia, self-assessments and audio recordings.
We send you monthly promotions to help you communicate LifeWorks within your organisation, to ensure that your employees get maximum value from the service.
LifeWorks mobile app
Information and support on the go, whenever you need it.
The valuable resources on lifeworks.com are also accessible on the LifeWorks mobile app; so your employees can access information and request the support they need while they’re on the go, whenever they need it.
Measure and track absence records to gauge the true scale of absence levels within your business.
For example, are employees taking short-term leave, or is there a wider issue with long-term sickness? What are the main causes of absence? Is it stress or back pain? This information will dictate the right interventions to counter the issues effectively.
Critical incident support
Immediate support – on-site or by phone.
Following an incident (for example the death of a colleague, or a major national disaster) a team of counsellors can be assembled to offer immediate confidential support for those affected, either on-site or by phone.
