Welcome to ISME's Wellness Programme in partnership with Laya Healthcare and Spectrum.Life.

Our programme provides an exclusive offer on an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) for Members.

What is EAP?

EAP provides a first-line response to providing prevention, triage and short-term problem resolution services to an organisation’s team and select family members. It is also available to managers to support them through any personal issues they might have while also helping them with any unique issues they may face in their role. It can be used by an employee, a spouse/partner and any dependent over the age of 16 who is living in the same household.
