Why sustainability is key

With rates of burnout, stress and mental ill health continuing to climb, calls to employee assistance programs (EAPs) are at a record high, with more employees than ever seeking help for complex and often serious wellbeing concerns.

But that ‘high’ is still only around 12% of the workforce. Many more need support but don’t engage with EAPs. And out of those who do call, it’s estimated only a fifth (less than 3% overall) are offered counseling sessions.

This is coming at a huge cost to both employees and organizations. It’s clear reactive, short-term support is only acting as a band-aid – it’s not enough to meet the needs of today’s teams.

That’s why sustainable high performance is now a major focus for organizations looking to level up their wellbeing solution.

Employee support programs offering sustainable results understand that to maintain high levels of wellbeing and performance, they must be considered from a long-term perspective. They must be addressed at all levels of an organization (from individual employees to relationships to wider policies and practices). And that increasing employee resources is crucial for both preventing problems and promoting wellbeing.

Happy and healthy people are now being recognised as an integral part of sustainable, socially responsible and productive businesses. But don’t just take our word for it. Not only is wellbeing now a key sustainable development goal for the UN, employee mental health is set to become a mandatory part of sustainability reporting, with new ESG regulations being rolled out in some countries as soon as 2024.

From traditional EAPs to modern solutions

Traditional EAPs are no longer fit for purpose. Offering employees short-term counseling and other reactive support services, they’re failing to meet the complex needs of a modern workforce.
