At Kura we put people first
The last year has challenged all of us in more ways than one. COVID-19 has changed a lot of things; change can often impact our mental health and wellbeing.
From an employee satisfaction survey taken soon after COVID-19 was seen as a longer term issue, we saw that people were worrying over things such as ‘how to achieve a better work life balance’ or ‘how they could overcome feelings of isolation’, as well as many other external factors.
At Kura, we wanted to continue to help.
Mental health and wellbeing always form a big part of the conversation within our Leadership team at Kura. We already had lots of resources available internally to help them be the best version of themselves. These resources have been invaluable at this time; they have helped us to support each other and deliver for our clients.
We all have our part to play in improving our mental wellbeing, but sometimes we just need that little bit of extra support. It is one of the main reasons why we put in place a telephone support service. This currently forms part of our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). Our people can discuss topics such as mental health, bereavement, financial/debt and legal matters at a time that suits them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We are planning to continue our investment in supporting staff wellbeing and will continue to roll out more initiatives throughout the rest of this year and beyond and we believe these additions will continue to support our people, our clients and their customers moving forward.
