Close to 2,000 LUXASIANS across 15 markets in APAC are set to benefit from this new policy, which includes Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Greater China, and India.
Omni-distribution platform for beauty and luxury brands, LUXASIA Group, has announced an annual one-day mental health leave benefit with the objective of destigmatising mental issues issues at the workplace, and providing employees an opportunity for self-care.
Close to 2,000 full-time LUXASIANS across 15 markets in APAC are set to benefit from this new policy, which includes Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Greater China, and India.
The initiative was launched at its recent GROWTH 2024 event (pictured above), where Group CEO, Dr Wolfgang Baier, presented the ambitious three-year growth plan for the company. He shared: "In tandem with explosive business growth, LUXASIA wants to ensure that our talents are cared for especially around mental health. Beyond professional development, we must also take a more holistic view of every team member’s needs."
In parallel with the Group's three-year growth plan is the launch of the three-year talent roadmap. The new mental health benefit is, thus, a subset of the company's wider employee wellbeing framework which is being rolled out over the next three years, to benefit and support employees' development & wellbeing.
Chan Wing Git, Group Head of Talent & Excitement, elaborated: "At some point, we had considered generically naming it 'wellbeing leave'. Eventually, we felt that it was important to emphasise and destigmatise mental health issues. Moving forward, LUXASIA will continue strengthening mental wellbeing support through meaningful initiatives such as sponsored counselling sessions and wellness workshops."
