Fáilte Ireland has announced that it has developed a range of free employee well-being supports to help people who work in the hospitality and tourism sectors on both a professional and personal level during the COVID-19 crisis.
Well-being supports include:
I Am Here
A rapid Response service, in partnership with PulseLearning, I Am Here offers a programme of mental health support and learning within the workplace and beyond to empower employers and employees to have conversations about mental health.
I Am Here recognises that employees want to connect with their fellow team members to get the help or support they may need, especially during times of crisis. This programme enables team members to signpost existing services to those who need it.
To access this service, visit I Am Here.
Employee Assistance Programme: Counselling and support
To provide more formal supports to those who need it, Fáilte Ireland has partnered with Inspire Workplaces to offer free and confidential access to an Employee Assistance Programme. This is available widely to tourism business owners, employees and people who are self-employed in the industry.
Inspire Workplaces offers wellbeing supports and counselling services as well as advice on financial concerns and legal issues and has a wealth of experience in supporting organisations and employees at times of crisis across Ireland.
Through a Freephone Helpline, offered 24/7/365, businesses and employees can access this full range of services:
Freephone Helpline on 1800 201346: You will need to quote Fáilte Ireland when accessing the service to ensure the services are provided to you free of charge.
