HCB is delighted to launch ‘Connected at Home’, a new service designed to enable Employers to support their staff working at home due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The ‘light-touch’ service has been specifically created to support staff with the practical aspects of working from home, and also helping Employers’ observe their duty of care to employees. The service can identify difficulties or health issues which may be emerging. HCB Case Managers will call employees to find out how they are and if they have any concerns.
Designed as a simple one-off telephone call which enables the employer to not only give empathetic support, but helps with the proactive detection of health issues, designed to aid improving staff retention and optimising attendance. Employees will feel supported through this confidential access to an independent and unbiased healthcare professional.
Jim Harris, Managing Director of the HCB Group commented:
“During this difficult year, HCB has proudly committed to developing Covid related services to support our clients. These services are designed to deliver timely and sustainable outcomes, focussed on keeping employees at work and minimising the risk of ‘drift’ into longer term or more serious illness. This is particularly relevant with employees having limited opportunity to share their concerns that potentially affect their biological or psychological health or of equal importance, their social wellness.”
