Right Management, the talent and career management experts within ManpowerGroup, have integrated their Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) and Wellness and Productivity solutions under the new name of Right Management Workplace Wellness™.

Right Management Workplace Wellness will subsume the previous trading name of Right Corecare, one of the UK’s leading providers of Employee Assistance Programmes, Work-Life Services Training, Consultancy and Mediation Services.

Jayne Carrington, Managing Director, Right Management Workplace Wellness™, says: “Over the years we have seen an increase in demand for new wellbeing services as well as our first-class employee assistance programmes. In addition we have also been leading the market with initiatives to move the emphasis from reactive to proactive wellbeing solutions, including recognising the need to develop a resilient and engaged workforce. Bringing all our wellness and employee assistance solutions into one practice will be of benefit to our clients.”

Right Management Workplace Wellness™ recently released its annual EAP report, which revealed a larger percentage of the workforce  are accessing their Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) than they were four years ago.  In the last year, 30,000 employees accessed Right Management’s EAP services for help, an increase from 4.36% to 5.37% in percentage use of the services in 2011.

Carrington concludes: “In navigating the changing world of work, we believe no organisation will be successful in a globally competitive market with anything but healthy and productive people. Cost efficient, measureable solutions that support a culture of wellness and address psychological and physical ill-health have become an economic imperative. The cost of doing something is less than the cost of doing nothing”
