WellBeing

Gates places a high priority on the WellBeing of our employees and families – physical, emotional/behavioral, financial and social. Our goal is to make sure you feel supported and are aware of all the awesome opportunities available to you. Resources and programs will be offered throughout the year, focused on enhancing your life experience – facilitating more “good” in your life.
Our benefits are designed to support you when you need them most. Some of them are paid for in full by Gates and will support you automatically. Others are available for you to choose from to build a benefits package that suits your needs.

EAP/ Personal Resiliency Program - Magellan

Balancing the demands of work, home, family, finances, health and WellBeing can be challenging at times. We want to make sure that when issues do arise, you won’t have to face them alone. Our Personal Resiliency Program / EAP, is a confidential service, offering you access to experienced counselors who can help with stress, anxiety, drug and alcohol dependence, grief, loss and more. The program is run by Magellan and paid for by Gates– it won’t cost you anything to use and any calls you make are confidential; no one at Gates will be informed of your call.

In any calendar year, a member can participate in up to five (5) sessions (of 50 minutes each) for each specific problem or set of problems. If the counselor determines after one or two sessions that a member's problem or condition cannot be resolved with brief counseling, the counselor will assist the member to transition out of the employee assistance program to a provider who is appropriate for his or her condition. At that point, no further sessions are available to that member, except in connection with the transition to another provider.
