Programs & services

Online mental health community support

Provide support for your employees’ mental health and well-being in a safe, online community with our partner Togetherall. The Togetherall platform empowers them to seek and provide mental health support anonymously with a global community, helping them through difficult feelings they may experience while creating a sense of belonging and connection with others going through similar situations.

Benefits include the opportunity to anonymously connect with others experiencing similar situations, thoughts and feelings in a safe and supported platform that is fully moderated by clinical professionals.

Virtual fitness program

Offer a wide variety of virtual fitness solutions tailored to your employees’ unique abilities and goals through our partner LIFT session. Working out and staying healthy becomes not only convenient but also fun and engaging with accessible workouts that accommodate any schedule.

Benefits include workout programs built specifically for each individual that adapts to their ever-changing fitness journey and guidance and support from a live coach.

Parent, guardian and caregiver support

Provide parenting, guardian and caregiver support through our partner Torchlight. Regardless of age, stage, crisis or concern, Torchlight provides real-time access to strategies and solutions related to the needs and challenges of caring for children and/or elderly loved ones.

Benefits include trustworthy resources to help your employees tackle everyday and out-of-the-ordinary challenges, expert advice, one-on-one advising sessions and an online community to learn and share with their peers.

Sleep program

Help your employees take control of their sleep and improve their physical and mental health by exploring the cause of any sleep difficulties and getting support for a more restful sleep. This journey begins with an assessment to determine what sleep difficulties they may be experiencing and the solutions that are right for them. Personalized strategies may include a sleep consultation, sleep study, cognitive behavioural therapy or RestEd, which is a six-week, internet-based, self-guided program to learn how to identify and change thoughts and behaviours that may lead to sleeplessness.

Benefits include resolving a potential sleep disorder, such as insomnia, restless leg syndrome or sleep apnea, getting a better night’s sleep and improving their quality of life.

Financial planning and retirement resources

Support your employees by giving them access to valuable information and tools to effectively plan for retirement and their future. This also includes access to a three-hour virtual workshop that will cover a variety of topics and answer many questions about affordability, pensions, investments and government income sources.

Topics include:

  • demystifying the financial planning process.
  • performing a financial wellness checkup.
  • understanding your finances and taxes.
  • exploring sources of retirement income.
  • gaining knowledge on the amount of money needed to retire comfortably.
