Thanks to the partnership with Helping Hand, since the beginning of 2022, all the employees of Cushman & Wakefield in Poland have been able to enjoy unlimited access to psychoeducational materials supporting personal development such as interviews with specialists, webinars, workshops, videos and articles. The employees may also choose individual, anonymous consultations with a therapist such as chats, voice rooms and online meetings.
The collaboration with Helping Hand is aligned with the entrepreneurial culture of Cushman & Wakefield, while the input from experts cooperating with the platform adds value to the app and demonstrates that the provided support is effective. This innovative mental health solution is one of the pillars of Cushwake Cares, a well-being programme designed to increase the awareness of building a healthy life through a holistic approach.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has been a major challenge for all of us both from a business and personal perspective. At Cushman & Wakefield we do our best to build an organisational culture that will drive business excellence sustainably while focusing on our employees and their everyday needs. So far we have organized a number of webinars on physical and mental health and provided individual consultations with a psychologist. Our collaboration with Helping Hand is an innovative and comprehensive solution that provides an educational component on the one hand and offers support in individual cases on the other. The platform was built by fantastic people and the actual offer is prepared by specially trained experts. The fact that it is a start-up gives us plenty of space for flexibility and partnership, which we value very highly,” says Anna Trochim, Head of HR, Cushman & Wakefield.
“The hardships of the pandemic and the transition to remote working have only confirmed us in our conviction of the importance of having direct contact with another human being and constant access to therapeutic advice or preventive educational content. Cushman & Wakefield is a well-informed company that fully understands the employer’s pivotal role in supporting the mental health of employees. We remain hopeful that our cooperation will be an inspiration for others and that employee benefits comprising psychological support will soon become a standard on the Polish market,” says Aleksandra Tokarewicz, Board Member, Product and Sales Officer in the company managing the Helping Hand platform.
