University of Glasgow Employee Assistance Programme – a benefit for you

Published: 23 January 2012

As part of our wellbeing initiative, we will have a new provider for our EAP services from 1 February

As part of our wellbeing initiative I am pleased to announce that, as of 1 February 2012, our new supplier of Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) services, providing a range of information and support services to all University of Glasgow employees, will be PPC Worldwide Ltd., a leader in the global EAP arena.

The EAP can help with all sorts of different personal and work related queries; some from anticipated life events and some from events which take you by surprise.  The service helps individuals by providing emotional support via the telephone and face to face, as well as providing extensive information and access to specialist advice on their website. The programme is provided free of charge to all employees. 

To contact the service simply dial 0800 282 193

You will also have access to an online resource where you can seek information and advice on a wide range of topics concerning work-life, personal support, and health and well-being.  The information, in the form of hundreds of fact sheets and useful links, is drawn from a number of professional sources and presented in a format that’s easy to read and download.  All you will need to do is log on to and enter your organisational username and password which is:

Username: Glasgow

Password:  University

Our current EAP provider, Employee Counselling Services, will continue to provide services up to the end of January, completing the support programme for all employees contacting the service up to and including 31st January 2012.

I warmly welcome the start of our working relationship with PPC, which I believe will be a constructive initiative, and provide a new dimension in employee care.  I am confident that all employees will find this a valuable service to have available.
