How this Big 4 Accounting Firm is building an inclusive culture of wellbeing
The Singaporean branch of a Big 4 accounting
firm reached out to MindFi during its search
for a wellbeing solution.
As a regional leader in audits and accounting,
the firm wanted to ensure that its 3,000 employees had the tools and support needed to thrive under high pressure.
Fast-paced and highly stressful all year around, the audit and accounting industry is known for high turnover. Such problems can be especially acute among the Big 4 firms, where, in addition to managing long hours, employees must manage client expectations and uphold company prestige.
One Big 4 firm sought to improve overall wellbeing in the organization with a combination of employee support resources and leadership-led culture change. They desired scientific insights into the wellbeing state of employees and actionable suggestions for leadership to execute.
After a thorough review of different providers around Asia, the firm decided that MindFi fulfilled all of its needs.
MindFi delivered a customized solution that included:
- Premium app subscription for 3,000 Singaporean employees, with access to 600+ video classes and audio guided exercises
- Private & Confidential EAP: Digital therapy & counseling services for employees
- Masterclasses on various wellbeing topics, including “Happiness Starts With Good Mental Health” and “Mental Health First Aid For Leaders”
- Wellbeing Analytics to provide actionable insights and refine the wellbeing program delivery
“MindFi is an amazing app. After having a counseling session with a kind and understanding therapist, I can follow up with or post my questions in the form. It increases my capacity to deal with self-isolation.”
