Supporting Employees’ Mental Health
As a Strategic People Partner at SmartRecruiters, I spend a majority of my time enabling people managers and their teams to be the most effective they can be. If we want people who are inspired and ready to achieve big goals, we have to make sure everyone has the support they need. This is why we provide amazing wellness tools and resources to our people across the globe!
Therapy on Demand
What I love most about our benefits is they are deeply anchored in our company culture. As a people-first organization, our priority is your well-being in all facets of your life. One example that is part of our benefits package is free access to on-demand therapy.
As a SmartRecruiters employee, I can reach out to a professional therapist whenever I need it with the option to ask questions and receive thoughtful responses. We also have access to resources - like books, videos and sample exercises - along with the ability to schedule one-off therapy sessions for deep and meaningful conversations about any topic, such as troubling feelings, career challenges, how to effectively support others and more.
Supporting Our People
Leading a team comes with many beautiful moments and can be very rewarding. But it also includes tough moments that create stress and pressure which can be emotionally draining. In those difficult moments, I remind those I work with about the old but simple truth: you have to put the oxygen mask on yourself first if you want to effectively support those around you.
SmartRecruiters benefits can act as your oxygen mask when you need one. You’re able to choose what works best for you from a wide range of options, including but not limited to the following:
Unlimited paid time off to ensure you can rest and recharge when you need
Wellness stipend to start yoga classes, try a meditation app or any other activity that will benefit your health
Twice annual company-wide shutdowns to provide a break for the entire organization so you can truly disconnect and enjoy uninterrupted time off
Ability to take a “workation” to get a break from your routine and change your environment for a bit
Access to professional therapy to release stress and learn how to manage it effectively
At SmartRecruiters, we care about our people. Should you join our team, you will always be a priority and have access to the tools and resources you need to take care of yourself first. In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, I encourage you to invest in self-care and ensure you’re working at an organization that takes your well-being seriously.
