Support for B&A Group Employees During Covid-19

Support for B&A Group Employees During Covid-19

At B&A Group we understand the toll the current Covid-19 situation is having on individuals and their families. We have recently taken the decision to temporarily suspend our operations in a bid to help protect our employees, clients and preserve our NHS from becoming overwhelmed. 

This is a time of uncertainty and for many it may be stirring up feelings of fear and anxiety. At B&A Group, we are pleased to be able to offer our valued staff a comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme to help meet some of their needs at this time. 

Last year, we teamed up with Smart Hive/Busy Bees Benefits in order to provide a range of excellent benefits to our B&A Group employees. These include support, discounts, childcare schemes and more. 

Employee Assistance Scheme

Part of our benefits scheme is our Employee Assistance Programme. The programme offers confidential help and advice for our employees who need support dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression, stress management, legal or financial concerns.  

Employees can have access to up to six sessions with a trained counsellor. Counselling is independent and confidential. Plus, it is available for employees to access 24/7.

This service is available over the phone, so it is something employees can take advantage of while self-isolating in their own homes. The service is also available to employees’ partners and any dependents. 

Our Smart Hive hub also offers a wealth of helpful free resources for employees on topics such as financial wellbeing and debt management. 

We understand that at such a tough time, it can be helpful to reach out and talk to someone who can offer impartial help and advice. Be it financial worries or problems with anxiety. To all our staff, please take advantage of this service to help yourselves and your families during this season. 

We hope this service will be of help to our amazing team, especially during such challenging times. We’d like to extend our thanks to everyone who works so hard to make B&A Group great.
