For some, a healthy work-life balance can be maintained through supportive family members and colleagues, but for others, the situation may not be the same. Work-related stress is something we all feel from time to time. Prolonged work-related stress without relief can lead to burnout which can subsequently affect all aspects of wellbeing, including physical, mental or emotional, social and financial.
If you are experiencing any of these, remember that it is normal, and it is a phase that almost everyone goes through at certain points in life. Here at EY, we are committed to assisting our people receive optimum health and wellbeing support so that they can be the best version of themselves. One of the solutions that EY offers to its people is the Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
What is EAP?
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) was launched for EY people in Malaysia in October 2018. It is a program that helps our people obtain professional help from certified counsellors and mental health professionals. All the sessions conducted via EAP are carried out confidentially and everyone in EY is given free access to initiate the service when needed. The sessions are 100% confidential and the EAP team can either be contacted via a toll-free line from Monday to Friday (9 a.m. to 9 p.m.), or by email.
Usage of EAP
Through the EAP, one can obtain support and advice in dealing with anxiety, stress, depression, feelings of being overwhelmed by pressures at work or home, personal issues and family challenges, family counseling, conflict with colleagues, career burnout or other issues that may be impacting one’s personal or professional life.
The wellbeing of our people is a priority at EY. In driving our purpose of building a better working world, we need to ensure that our people’s wellness is fully supported. We believe that when our people thrive, we thrive.
The best version of you.
It’s yours to build.
