The Employee Assistance Program (EAP), previously provided by Davidson Trahaire Corpsych, has a new name and a new brand. Benestar, which means ‘wellbeing’ in Catalan, captures the essence of the shift towards holistic health and wellbeing for employees.
Benestar now provides free confidential counselling, coaching and wellbeing services for all UNSW staff and their eligible family members. The service can help you achieve lifestyle, work, personal and family goals and assist you with managing work and life experiences, issues or concerns that arise from time to time.
Your wellbeing at work is crucial in helping you achieve your full potential. To help you stay healthy and happy at work, the University offers a wide range of benefits, services and facilities ranging from flexible working to counselling services.
It’s easy to get started and once you’ve registered you’ll have secure access on any device to the portal and the BeneHub app.
