- Users can quickly and easily get support from their EFAP and other services that can help them address immediate concerns or for proactive long-term personal growth.
- Users can also initiate health assessments that will identify areas of their health and wellbeing to target right away for quick and meaningful improvements.

Together, these features of the LifeWorks app in Teams empower users to take needed wellness breaks and establish healthy habits, all while staying connected to their coworkers – an essential part of building workplace culture and maintaining social wellbeing. It brings total wellbeing even closer to people while they are working.
Comments from Stephen Liptrap, president and chief executive officer, LifeWorks:
“Integrating LifeWorks EFAP and total wellbeing platform into Microsoft Teams is a big win for thousands of organizations and millions of people worldwide. Customers with the LifeWorks wellbeing platform and Teams have the right ingredients in place to prioritize people’s health and wellbeing, which improves their lives at home and work.”
Comments from Jason Brommet, modern work and security business group lead, Microsoft Canada:
“Microsoft Teams brings together everything employees and organizations need in one place – communication, collaboration and information. Since the modern workplace became remote and hybrid, the demand for the right technology solutions to keep employees engaged and informed has never been greater. Wellbeing resources, such as LifeWorks, are integral to supporting employees. Bringing this to life directly in Teams empowers employees to access the services they need directly in the flow of their day.”
Integration with Teams helps keep mental health top of mind and a part of people’s daily routine, leading to healthy resilience and wellbeing for all.
