Why implement an EWP?

Working closely with many multinational organisations for many years has given us an extensive understanding of the challenges that international businesses face, and the increasing costs and implications for businesses caused by presenteeism and absenteeism.

ICAS EWP's create win-win situations for employers and employees. Resolving employees difficulties quickly and maintaining a contented and productive workforce for the employer. 

Our professional teams of counsellors, psychologists and work-life consultants are there to help individuals tackle all types of problems, from simple issues that we all encounter in daily living to more complex and challenging personal and emotional difficulties.

We provide the same world-class EWP everywhere through our network of local offices, helping your employees stay healthy, focused and productive.  And as our EWP is made up of a number of components, we can tailor our service to meet your requirements.

Our key elements of our EWP include:

  • Counselling services for emotional support, 24/7, 365 days a year
  • LifeManagement Services for practical and legal issues 
  • Online wellbeing services for access to EWP resources
  • Critical incident management for immediate solutions to organisations recovering from crises
  • Wellness Coaching - Nutritional and Fitness Coaching service
  • Disease Management - proactive management of diseases like Diabetes
  • Health Screening - mobile health screening unit to provide indidviduals with biometric data
  • Health Care Management - preventative action linking to disease management.



A really important aspect of the EWP is confidentiality.  We follow strict guidelines on ethics and data protection.  Your employees can be reassured that they will remain anonymous whilst dealing with AXA ICAS.

Our reporting on utilisation and most common employee issues, is useful for helping employers design their wellbeing programmes in order to improve working conditions and environments, reduce stress, and improve employee satisfaction. We do not provide information on individual cases.
