Employee wellness programme
The employee wellness programme (EWP) is comprehensive and employee-centric. The programme trains managers to identify distressed employees. Distressed employees are encouraged to partake in the programme. Healthwise is an easily accessible platform that provides wellness services for employees and their immediate dependants.
The programme is designed along four pillars:
This consists of our annual business unit wellness days, DBC wellness days, on-site weight loss programme, boot camp, and charity walks. We also offer the clinic on-site at our Florida offices.
This is our 365 24/7 Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) facilitated by Ask Nelson. It provides counselling services to our employees and their immediate family members.
The debt management programme facilitated by our service provider, Interface, offers employees free financial wellbeing services on issues such as budgeting, wills and estates.
This is absence management through our ICAS first day of absence system and disability management
through Sanlam Group Life.
In line with our vision to empower greater access to sustainable quality healthcare, and to improve employee productivity and wellness, we launched our first on-site employee healthcare facility on 6 March 2018, which provides employees with primary healthcare services ranging from health assessments and consultations, to family planning and disease management.
The facility is managed and operated by an external service provider to ensure confidentiality for employees' health data and records. While the facility is fully sponsored by the Group, dispensed medication is subsidised and comes at a marginal cost to employees.
We intend to continue expanding the facility's service offerings to our employees and, should this pilot initiative be successful, to make available similar services to employees at our regional operations.
