Employee Counselling v.s.

MindFi’s Wellbeing Program

Why wellbeing programs are better at supporting & enhancing the mental health and wellbeing of your employees.

Counseling is largely a reactive process.
Wellbeing programs, proactive.

In most cases, counseling’s aim is to help resolve employee wellbeing issues that have occurred.

MindFi’s wellbeing program aims to prevent issues from arising in the first-place.

Counseling targets the short-term.Wellbeing programs are a long-term engagement.

EAPs are only used by some employees who experience issues and are willing to initiate engagement.

MindFi’s wellbeing program strives to educate all employees to place an importance on their wellbeing and engagement with initiatives.

Counseling is one dimensional. Wellbeing programs — multi-faceted.

Counseling provides employees with support on a singular channel: a 1-1 counseling session.

MindFi’s wellbeing program includes that and so much more like: group initiatives, education, training programs, an app, and analytics/insights for HR.

Their differences — summarized.

Employee Counselling

  • Most of the help only arrives after a crisis occurs.
  • Does not address the stigma associated with mental health. Relies on individuals to self-educate and initiate.
  • “Solo journey” leading to individuals feeling isolated with their problems.
  • HR / employers are unable to support individuals because they have no insight into the wellbeing of their workforce.

MindFi’s Wellbeing Program

  • There’s proactive care and intervention. Prevention is key.
  • Aims to dispel stigma through employee education, training, & group initiatives.
  • Aims to foster a culture of openness to wellbeing in the organization.
  • HR / employers have a strong pulse on employee wellbeing and are empowered with insights to run initiatives for support.

Concerns about mental well-being existed before COVID-19, but stigma made it difficult to address. By partnering with MindFi, we're able to eradicate this stigma and increase our employees' mental strength. The most powerful aspect of MindFi is the access to regular, highly-detailed updates on organizational well-being. The insights and recommendations help us make effective, data driven decisions.
