Work/Life Services

We recognize that your employees—like our own—need help to maintain work/life balance and productivity. Life is complex: demanding schedules may overwhelm employees. A growing number of employees are single parents or in households where both spouses work; and in some cases, employees are responsible for the care of both children and elders.

Employers have recognized that Work/Life issues such as dependent care concerns, often turn into bigger, more costly issues if they are not effectively addressed early on. Complications related to child and elder care and many other personal issues can impact the workplace and cause tardiness, absenteeism, turnover and low morale.

The Beacon Health Options Solution

Beacon Health Options’ Work/Life services offer a range of online and telephonic support that help members manage their day-to-day concerns and needs. Because we understand that workplace demands can spill over and affect spouses and families, our Work/Life services are tailored to support effective management of work and home responsibilities to assist both employees and families. The result: reduced stress and greater peace of mind, improved morale and retention, reduced absenteeism and restored productivity.

We connect program participants with Work/Life Specialists who are specially trained to identify their needs and preferences. Our spectrum of Work/Life services include referrals and information on:

  • Adoption
  • Adult care
  • Aging
  • Balancing work and family
  • Child care
  • Children and adults with special needs
  • Daily living
  • Education
  • Emergency dependent care
  • End-of-life issues
  • Health and wellness
  • Moving and relocation
  • Parenting and child development

Employees and dependents also have unlimited access to our award- winning behavioral health and wellness website, Achieve Solutions. This web-based resource offers tools and information such as podcasts and webinars, self-search locators for dependent care and education, tip sheets, articles and quizzes. For example, an employee concerned about child care can access a library of articles on how to select a child care provider and then use our online provider search tool to find lists of local providers in the community.
