The Clean Space is thrilled to announce it has rolled out a company-wide Employee Assistance Program (EAP) designed to improve staff mental health and wellbeing by giving staff immediate access to help, support and counselling (among other benefits).
The Clean Space was founded, almost 20 years ago, on one ever-lasting principle – ‘if you take good care of your people, they will take good care of your customers in return’. Our core values of ‘caring about people’ and ‘making a measurable impact on the lives of our cleaners, staff and their families’ still runs strong in The Clean Space culture to this day.
In line with this belief, we have just rolled out our all new Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to all of our staff.
Partnering with Spectrum.Life, one of the largest providers of health and wellbeing solutions with over £1m users in the UK and Ireland, The Clean Space now offers a raft of professional and self-guided resources for its team.
The new benefits include 3 core features and are available to all our staff from day one of their employment:
1. Access to counselling and advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
“A problem shared is a problem halved”.
This valuable telephone service provides on demand professional support when things get tough or if staff just feel they need someone to talk to. It can be used to help with all kinds of personal, professional and health related issues.
24/7 mental health management and ‘In The Moment Support’ delivered by a team of 2,350+ in-house Counsellors and Psychotherapists:
- It’s 100% confidential.
- The service includes 6 sessions per issue.
- Appointments are delivered in person, by phone or video.
- The service is available for staff and their dependants (over 16) that are living at home.
The fully qualified team of counsellors and psychotherapists are highly experienced in personal and work-related issues and can support anyone suffering with issues including, but not limited to:

There are numbers for both employees at home in the UK and for when they are travelling abroad, making it truly accessible to all, and at any time, no matter where they are in the world.
