Social entertainment brand Lucky Voice has extended its employee assistance programme (EAP) to include mental health and wellbeing support.
Lucky Voice added a suite of resources and self-help tools to the EAP, aimed at supporting its 87 employees both physically and emotionally, from managing anxiety to breathing techniques.
The business also launched a four-week self-help programme that has been designed to help staff through small yet important lifestyle changes, such as sleeping better or addressing smoking and alcohol consumption.
The EAP has also been expanded to include support regarding debt management, household budgeting and civil disputes.
Lucky Voice made the decision to introduce this due to its core value that staff should feel like work is a positive factor in their lives, and its aim to protect and enhance their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
Charlie Elek, managing director at Lucky Voice, said: “Lucky Voice would be nothing without its people, and we have always placed great emphasis on mutual respect between employer and employee, flexibility for life, and day to day happiness in the workplace. One of our core business values is to have fun, be fun and we strive to offer our employees the same excitement that our karaoke-loving customers enjoy when they pick up one of our mics, and our EAP is very much a realisation of this value.
“We’re proud of the fact that our staff retention levels are among the best in the hospitality sector, with our people staying with us for several consecutive years. By incorporating mental health support as part of our wider support programme, we hope to encourage in our employees a continued confidence in the business.”
