International employee assistance programmes

Healthy mind, healthy body

An overseas posting brings with it exciting opportunities to experience diverse cultures, taste new food, learn a foreign language, participate in different ways of working and make new friends and acquaintances. Sometimes however, the experience can become overwhelming and bewildering.

Expatriates and business travellers often report experiencing:

  • Isolation and anxiety
  • Feelings of loss and separation from family and friends
  • Lack of familiar social support systems
  • Increased levels of stress leading to physical, social and psychological problems

Willis Towers Watson Health & Benefits understands that being unable to cope with these feelings is a common reason for an overseas employee placement to fail. We provide international Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) through specialist partners, who can offer access to employee assistance services 24 hours a day, every day.

Confidential support and practical information is available by telephone or via the website.
