In today’s fast-paced and ever-evolving business landscape, nurturing a happy, healthy and high-performing workforce is paramount. At Get Up and Grow, we understand that a company’s most valuable asset is its people. That’s why we’ve designed our Employee Wellness Assistance Programme (EWAP) to empower business owners, managers and HR professionals with the tools and support they need to elevate their employees’ well-being and drive business success.

Why an Employee Wellness Assistance Programme (EWAP)?

As you explore the potential of our EWAP, consider the following compelling insights:

1. The Power of Mental Health Support: Recent statistics reveal that mental health issues significantly impact employee performance. Untreated conditions result in decreased productivity, increased absenteeism, workplace conflicts and safety concerns. When employees struggle with their mental health, the entire organisation feels the ripple effect.

2. The Consequences of Neglect: Failing to address mental health within your workforce can lead to diminished morale, decreased effectiveness and lost opportunities for growth. It’s not a matter of if, but when, challenges will arise. The question is, will you wait until you’re dealing with problems or will you proactively invest in the well-being of your team?

3. The Benefits of Being Proactive: Our EWAP is your proactive solution. By adopting a comprehensive mental health support programme, you ensure that your employees are equipped to navigate life’s challenges and in turn, contribute to your company’s growth. It’s about creating a workplace where your team thrives, excels and remains dedicated to your success.

4. Criteria that Prioritise Effectiveness: Our EWAP adheres to international norms for Employee Assistance Programmes, ensuring that support reaches those who genuinely need it, limiting abuse of our system and providing a structured framework for assistance.

5. A Spectrum of Services: Get Up and Grow offers a wide range of services within our EWAP, including trauma debriefing, holistic wellness counselling, complimentary therapies, resilience coaching, strategic life coaching and mentoring. We are committed to addressing the diverse needs of your employees.

6. Real-Life Success Stories: Explore the transformative impact of EWAP through real-life examples where our programme was activated and employees received the support they needed. These stories underscore the potential for positive change within your organization.

Our EWAP is your opportunity to elevate your workplace into a haven of well-being, where employees flourish and your business prospers. Don’t wait for challenges to emerge – be the proactive leader your team deserves and embrace the future of a thriving workforce.

How it Works

Every employee is signed up to the Get Up and Grow EWAP Membership, a monthly subscription ranging from $5 (+/- R94pm) to $13 (+/- R260pm), negotiable depending on the number of employees enrolled. They get instant access to a wealth of Resilience Training Resources: blog posts, quizzes, challenges, videos, books, tools, podcasts, online courses, expert interviews, summits and other resources & events. As employer, you can either choose a list of Resilience Trainings to be completed in a specific period or allow employees to choose themselves, as long as they meet your minimum requirements. Whenever an employee requires support for a critical incident, event or personal challenge, they qualify upon condition that the requirements in terms of Resilience Trainings have been met. In other words, they have completed the required number of Resilience Trainings to date.

For example: You have pre-selected 12 Resilience Trainings for employees to access & complete over a period of 12 months. Nine months later, an employee goes through a divorce but fortunately, they have already, among the nine trainings, completed our course on divorce and are therefore, well-equipped to handle the stress without neglecting their work, so they do not need individual support in terms of our trauma debriefing or counselling services. Another employee gets involved in a motor vehicle accident and need an individual trauma debriefing session to help them overcome the fear of driving to work every day. Fortunately, they have already accessed and completed nine of the Get Up and Grow Resilience Trainings, so they have acquired many skills and tools to apply to their stressful situation and overcome the challenges successfully. The result – your employees are much more resilient and able to deal with the adversities and traumatic experiences life throws at them. (A full list of Resilience Training Resources can be provided upon request, as it is updated & extended regularly).
