ADVICE IN ALL
LIFE SITUATIONS

  • Difficulties in the workplace

    Conflicts in the workplace are often difficult for us humans to solve. There are situations in which we feel overwhelmed, such as

    – hidden or open conflicts with superiors, employees or colleagues
    – not enough self-esteem to assert oneself
    – fear of not meeting the requirements
    – No more joy at work
    – Exhaustion and fatigue
    – upcoming retirement, which can make you afraid

  • Relationship issues, separation/divorce

    Relationship problems are among the most common private issues why people contact us. They can be very stressful and affect our performance at work. With ICAS, employees can get support at an early stage, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, before presenteeism and absenteeism occur.

  • Family matters, parenting, childcare, eldercare

    People bring private concerns such as raising children or caring for relatives to their workplace.  Managers often do not know how to deal with such personal problems. Nor is it their job to solve private problems. So as to support them to fulfill their duty of care, the manager is enabled to offer their team member access to help to deal with their personal issues. They can do this in complete confidence, and it will help them to work better and more effectively.

  • Stress, conflicts, bullying, harassment

    Stress and conflicts in the workplace are among the most common work-related issues why we are contacted. Especially stress-related performance losses are rarely visible from the outside. Therefore, the most effective and cost-effective prevention is if those affected can immediately help themselves. The ICAS service is low-threshold and strictly confidential. ICAS services can significantly improve the effectiveness of the employees’ work performance.

  • Burnout, depression, anxiety, bereavement, addiction

    The WHO estimates that by the end of 2020 depression and affective disorders will be the world’s second most common disease. According to the WHO, the absence from work for mental illnesses is 50% longer than for physical illnesses. The earlier help is sought, the lower the risk of long-term mental illness. In order to be effective, support must be low-threshold, highly professional and absolutely confidential. The WHO recommends an EAP as an effective tool for organizations.

  • Legal issues (housing, consumer rights, contracts, etc.)

    Our specialists offer you and your employees expert guidance on practical and legal issues such work-related topics, finances, debt, housing, family, consumer questions, contracts, etc.
