COVID-19 is an amazing teacher. Management has learned so much from the pandemic experience and discovered ways to make employees more productive. One discovery is that teleworking really improves the numbers. People enjoy working from home and the performance increases have taken place. Still, there are some challenges when it comes to teleworking that need attention.
One Is the Loneliest Number
It is the title of the hit song from the 60's and it is relevant today in the world of remote work. Employees need to adapt to technology and how to manage their time. Management helps, but more needs to be done for someone who works alone.
There was an informal communication system in the office. People learned how to get things done and how to deal with external emergencies. This friendly voice is art there for longer. A teleworker can be stressed and an organization needs to help these people with different challenges. Financial well-being is one way. It is more than answering questions about salary for benefits. Employees are remotely concerned about all financial issues such as college debt, credit card management and medical bill management. Employers can provide good help by offering professional support. Nationwide prepaid legal services have an economic health benefit that is a powerful stress reducer.
Comes to the rescue
type of assistance that nationwide will provide depends on the employee's circumstances. Some of these high-tech employees, whose contributions are crucial to success, may be overwhelmed by their college debt. Other employees may stare at credit card bills getting out of control.
Nationwide trusts a national network of certified advisors to provide the benefit. These are skilled professionals who handle common financial problems that ordinary people face. They offer the kind of suggestions and guidance that anyone can use.
An older employee may have problems with medical deductibles and the rising cost of medical treatments. Our advisors can give suggestions on how to handle medical debt and keep things under control. Those who are in severe financial stress may need the services in our debt management plan. We recognize that it costs a little extra, but this is the type of service that provides additional advice and other types of help that are badly needed. We can also help someone who is trying to handle bankruptcy.
It is not all doom and gloom. There are some financial health benefits. Nationwide provides what helps those who are trying to save money or even buy a house. We have a self-study course that teaches the new home buyer how to handle real estate. If an individual wants to control their money, the nationwide advisor will do a budget analysis to help.
Empathy and Emotional Intelligence
Experts in management science comment on the need for emotional intelligence, especially with remote workers. Nationwide can no longer agree. We believe that emotional intelligence is a critical service given to all members of the financial health plan.
Client organizations can expect nationwide counselors to listen and not preach. They provide answers to problems and our advisors listen patiently to anyone. Our administrative service is deliberately streamlined to help people get help quickly. Remote employees do not have to worry about being ignored. They will not be if they are part of a financial health plan sponsored by Countrywide.
We ask customer organizations to tell us what benefits we offer will be part of their financial health plan. These choices are part of the final planning document. We explain all options and answer all questions about the Countrywide program. We welcome the opportunity to talk to you.
Feel free to contact us when it suits you. Countrywide is ready to explain the benefits and show how your teleworkers receive quality support. We offer the kind of help that all your employees will appreciate.
