At 4FX and our sister brand, CodeHub 200, we’ve always been advocates of positive mental health and supported Mental Health Awareness Week over the years. However, we know that safeguarding staff wellbeing is an ongoing commitment, which is why we’re proud to offer mental health care to our team for all 52 weeks of the year.
We provide every staff member with an AXA mental health care package that gives them access to tailored support, from 24/7 GP access and phone counselling sessions to psychiatric treatment and specialist referrals whenever and wherever they need it.
Julie King, Director at 4FX, says, “As a business, we know that coding and software development can be an insular industry, which can lead to serious mental health issues, such as depression.
“Although we pride ourselves on being very friendly and approachable, we understand that everyone’s problems are different and staff might not want to talk to a line manager or a colleague. By providing the team with outside support, they have access to a wealth of tools and advice to help safeguard their personal wellbeing.”
The wellbeing package offers the team a range of physical, mental and financial benefits including mental health support covering counselling sessions, Psychiatric treatment and specialist referral to psychologists and cognitive behavioural therapists. In addition, there is an Employee Assistance Programme which offers 24/7 phone support for psychological issues and life management, such as help with legal, debt, family, consumer and housing concerns, plus discounts on gym and other wellbeing activities.
