Julie Westgarth - HR Advisor
Newcastle Gateshead CCG
The service we have received from Carol at NECS has been amazing, from start to finish Carol listened to our needs and developed a bespoke programme of support for our staff which has been invaluable, we cannot thank her enough for her professionalism and the way she just intuitively “gets it” and pitches her sessions just right.
Christopher Piercy - Executive Director of Nursing Patient Safety and Quality in the CCG
Carol has provided a range of free sessions for our employees and Managers which have been invaluable in helping RTC North ensure the mental health and wellbeing of our employees while they are predominantly working from home. The sessions are delivered professionally and the workbooks provide a useful reference tool to reinforce learning points after the sessions.
The NECS team are very approachable and I would recommend their services without hesitation.
Mica MacInnes - Head of Learning and Development and HR
We have been using NECS for over a year now, and have counsellors come on site once a week. Having counsellors on site has been an integral part of our wellbeing plan, helping to support our colleagues when they need it most, and also helps to remove the ‘taboo’ around the topic of mental health and seeking support.
Beth Hatchett - HR Manager
Why refer your staff for counselling?
It all worked well for me, I guess when in crisis however you need rapid initial access and sometimes even a week seems like forever to be seen, helped, rescued or prevented from doing something more regrettable.
Carry on! More companies need to adopt a proactive and responsive service to staff in crisis. Save and help your staff and you will gain a more committed and resilient staff member for the future, saving time and money to recruit and train a replacement. It makes perfect empathic and economic sense.
