Currently, 92% of small business owners are reporting a moderate to very high level of stress at this time, yet over 70% are still optimistic about the future.*
Guardian is committed to providing their small businesses customers with the support they need to help navigate the challenges of this unprecedented time.
Guardian is expanding their current WorkLifeMatters Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to include a new Small Business COVID-19 Action Center, with resources their customers can use to help manage their business needs, including guidance on recent legislation.
Also, effective immediately, they are extending complimentary WorkLifeMatters services to all Guardian small business customers (with 500 employees or less who do not currently have Guardian's EAP), through July 31, 2020.
Customers have direct access to dedicated behavioral health, financial, and legal specialists for personalized, individual support via telephone or video:
- Employers can benefit from financial and legal guidance on a variety of topics related to COVID-19, such as the CARES and Family First Coronavirus Response Acts.
- Their employees can benefit from professional counseling that may be particularly needed at this time to help address their emotional well-being.
Guardian's new, dynamic COVID-19 Action Center is updated regularly with relevant webinars, videos and educational content for small businesses and employees.
Plus, comprehensive online tools and resources are available to help employees with day-to-day challenges around work, health, family, finances and legal issues.
