To help support CUSU’s employees we are offer a free and confidential Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). The EAP is delivered by Workplace Options, an independent provider of employee support services.
Advisors at Workplace Options are specialists in a range of fields, from well-being to relationship issues; from debt management to consumer rights. Te service offers practical information; fact sheets and packs; resource information on support services in your local area; and short-term face to face or telephonic counselling if needed.
The Workplace Options website offers extensive resources including articles, interactive tools and regular online seminars: whether you have a current matter that's causing distress, or simply want to 'think about' your work-life balance, the website may be useful to you.
CUSU pays for the support service so that it’s free of charge for you to use. CUSU does not receive information via the service: it is completely confidential for you. It’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and is accessible by phone, email and online.
