The new EAP is also available to families of employees.


Launched via a webinar, the EAP offers a a round-the-clock helpline which provides support on legal, financial, medical and personal issues callers may be struggling with.

"Our staff are our biggest asset and their safety and wellbeing is absolutely paramount. One of Anabas’ main focuses for 2020 is employee physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and we have been working on developing a new employee welfare package for some time. It was critical that we accelerated the go-live to support our staff when they need it most.

"My sincerest thanks go to all our staff who have worked tirelessly to help us and our clients to remain safe and healthy during this time. The support they have all shown in these last couple of weeks is fantastic and I couldn’t be more proud of the entire Anabas Family. We really have lived up to our value of being there for each other".
