A round-up of employee benefits and support services

Why supporting employees is so important

There’s no need to tell anybody how unsettling 2020 has been. Life has changed considerably for everybody.

There are a range of circumstances people find themselves in:

  • Some will be concerned for their physical health, anxious about the possibility of contracting Covid-19 and the consequences for them or their families.
  • Some will already have seen the devastating impact on close family or friends. They may be worried about returning to their normal place of work.
  • Others will have financial concerns, losing some or all their income. They could be working in a sector or business that has been unable to function or has had to scale back operations.
  • Yet more will have missed normal social interaction. They could be suffering poor mental health. They may be living alone and missing their friends, or stressed with their domestic circumstances.

All these concerns are valid. Sometimes, employees will be affected by several of these things at once.

As your insurance broker, our priority is to protect you and your employees in difficult times. So, we want to make you aware of several services we can offer to help protect the physical and mental health and wellbeing of your staff.

They are solutions that provide great value to help your people gain confidence, certainty and direction. They also ensure you are regarded as a good employer and can be trusted to look after their needs.

Group Income Protection

Group Income Protection provides employees with financial and rehabilitation support when they are unable to work due to long-term illness or injury.

During the coronavirus pandemic, this cover has offered peace-of-mind for those already affected by illness or injury, so they can focus on a return to health and work rather than worrying about their circumstances.

Depending on the insurer, the policy can also respond to certain mental health conditions that may have a debilitating affect on employees, making it difficult for them to work and function normally. Again, this could prove useful during challenging times.

We provide good value cover from a range of insurers, making arranging cover easy for you. This additional benefit also shows employees that you focus on their health and wellbeing, enhancing your reputation.

Covid-19 testing and support services

Right now, these services are proving useful to businesses of all sizes.

We can offer:
