Sounds like a tall order, doesn’t it? Not when you’ve got Balance.
How Balance Fits Into Your Strategy
Balance uses a quick and easy survey to paint a comprehensive picture of each employee’s unique life history, health risks and personal situation. Developed in collaboration with clinical behavioral health experts at Johns Hopkins, the survey helps people learn more about what’s going on with their mental health situation, so they understand why they’re feeling the way they do. This establishes crucial buy-in from employees – when they have a deeper understanding of their mental health situation, they’re more compelled to do something about it.
Balance Offers Your Employees Options
Based on the results of the initial survey, Balance lets your employees determine the steps they want to take to start feeling better. They can access educational videos, start a virtual mental health chat, have a conversation with a Balance program-trained Care Concierge and get connected to a wellness or financial well-being coach, therapist, or other specialist if needed.
Or if it’s their adolescent child who needs help, our care team can work with them and their parents to get the support they need, quickly and conveniently. Balance offers a whole menu of choices so employees can find the right option for them—on their own terms and in their own time.
Balance Supports Your Employees and Your Business
Balance is tailored to each person’s unique situation and needs, and gives them convenient access to best-in-class support in whatever way works best for them. By offering Balance to your employees, you can rest assured you’re supporting their well-being and ultimately, the well-being of your business.
