At CommScope, happy employees are productive
employees. Our well-being program, Good for You,
provides physical, emotional, and financial well-being resources. In 2018, we
expanded the scope of the program to include all facilities by identifying and
engaging wellness champions at the facilities outside the U.S. region.
Many sites have taken proactive steps over the past few
years to promote health and well-being awareness and to organize activities for
employees. These include:
- On-site health clinics at manufacturing
facilities. Supervised by a medical doctor and/or staffed with nurse
practitioners, these clinics provide preventive care, disease management,
prescriptions, and treatment for chronic conditions like diabetes and
- Wellness champions who raise awareness about
healthy living by encouraging employee participation in the well-being program,
healthier eating, weight loss programs and walking challenges.
On-site fitness centers.
Financial planning resources to help employees with
major life events, or to help manage their monthly budget and get out of debt.
- Annual biometrics screening and flu shots. CommScope
partners with third-party service providers to offer on-site biometric
screenings and flu shots in multiple facilities around the world. This
screening provides employees information about their personal health and
identifies potential health risks, if any.

Recognizing that employee well-being is impacted by many
aspects of life—physical and mental health, personal relationships, career,
family, finances and education—CommScope introduced a new program called
GuidanceResources in 2018. The program aims to help employees take on these
life events with confidence, whether it is a positive change like buying a
first home, or an overwhelming challenge such as tackling mounting debt.
GuidanceResources provides access to information, counseling
and more to assist employees with a wide variety of life situations including
coping with loss, drug and alcohol abuse, family and parenting issues and much
“Having a caring
resource to turn to for support and guidance can make even the toughest of
life’s challenges more manageable,” said Dr. Robin Schroyer, manager of
corporate health and well-being for CommScope, who helped bring
GuidanceResources on board. “We wanted to put together a program that all
employees and their families, no matter where they live, can use and benefit.
GuidanceResources is superior to similar programs available, providing
world-wide support and assistance that is culture and country-specific. The
range of life situations it supports is almost limitless.”
GuidanceResources is available 24 hours a day, seven days a
week and there is never a financial charge to employees for the information and
guidance provided. When an employee or a member of an employee’s family calls
GuidanceResources, they will speak live and in confidence to a specialist who
will determine the type of expertise their situation requires and start the
process of getting them the right support. Employees can request something as
routine as a referral to a trustworthy car repair shop in their local community
or as personal as marriage counseling. The program provides services and
support across four key areas:
- Financial Guidance—From creating a college savings plan
for children, to tax questions, mortgage help, budgeting and much more.
GuidanceResources can connect employees to the right information, advice and
- Legal Assistance—Consultation on common tenant/landlord
issues, estate planning, and many other legal matters. If an employee’s issue
requires more in-depth attention, GuidanceResources offers 25 percent off legal
fees when the employee or a family member engages an independent legal
representative from the GuidanceResource network.
- Work-life Balance—From child or elder care to home repair
companies to medical services and much more, GuidanceResources can save
employees time by doing the “legwork” to find reputable services in their area.
- Personal Counseling/Coaching—Working with a professional
to help manage and prevent challenges. Employees can talk to a licensed
professional in their area, confidentially, and at no cost to them. This
service does not count against employee health insurance and there is no
In the first few months alone, more than 1,000 CommScope
employees around the world received services under the GuidanceResources
Taken together, the Good for You and GuidanceResources
programs offer a wealth of guidance, resources and support to keep CommScope
employees happy and healthy. These programs are an essential part of high
productivity and high-quality work.
