Practical, proactive and positive support.

Personal issues can have a major impact on your employee’s work, which can result in absence or distraction. This adds up to a cost to your business, not just in hours lost, but in loss of productivity and engagement. Ceridian provides support services to those who may be experiencing problems in or outside of the workplace, through its Employee Assistance Programme, LifeWorks.


We know from years of experience that sensitive and challenging events sometimes stretch beyond our capability. 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.
