PPP healthcare has recruited comedians Mel Smith and Griff Rhys-Jones to communicate the benefits of its new employee assistance service, Employee Support.
The five-minute video uses Smith & Jones’ “talking heads” to promote to company directors the benefits of introducing stress counselling into their organisations.
PPP’s Employee Support provides this stress counselling and is designed to reduce staff absence and improve workforce efficiency.
It is a 24-hour confidential telephone service with access to full-time qualifies counsellors.
Latest statistics indicate that employees lose on average 2.5 working days a year due to stress.
PPP’s corporate services director, Keith Trower said: “Company directors need to appreciate the importance of stress and understand how it can be prevented and managed.”
