Workplace wellbeing

Group Income Protection

Our workplace wellbeing solutions, available alongside our Group Income Protection cover, focus on strengthening the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of employees by inspiring behavioural change within a business.

Promoting health and wellbeing in the workplace can bring real benefits to your client’s business and their employees, providing a better quality of life for the employee and a healthier workforce for your client. Both could lead to lower sickness absence levels and lower costs associated with it.

Your clients and their employees can benefit from the expertise and experience of our in-house wellbeing and rehabilitation teams, who can design and deliver solutions that meet the specific needs of the workforce and business.

To find out how our workplace wellbeing solutions can help your clients, please call 0800 145 5684, or speak to your account manager.

Workplace wellbeing support

As the benefits of a healthy workforce are far reaching, it’s no wonder wellbeing is high on the agenda for most employers. We all want to feel valued and supported not just at home but also at work.

Finding a wellbeing programme that works for everyone within an organisation, and which meets specific organisational needs can be challenging, We can help your clients identify and implement a wellbeing strategy, and create tailored support solutions from our comprehensive workplace wellbeing programme.

Clinical and vocational rehabilitation support

We offer a range of rehabilitation and specialist clinical services developed in collaboration with our trusted partners, designed to get the right support for your clients and their employees. Plus, our in-house clinical and rehabilitation team can provide advice, case management, signposting and support with return-to-work planning.

It pays to move quickly

If your client is aware of an employee who is at risk of long-term absence, we’d encourage them to contact our rehabilitation and claims team as soon as possible, helping reduce the likelihood of prolonged absence and reducing associated costs.

Making it easy for everyone

We’ll assign a dedicated case manager who will be on hand to discuss any additional support that may help your client or their employee. We’ll provide continuing support and guidance throughout any treatment and specialist referrals and apply the most appropriate intervention measures and rehabilitation techniques to encourage a rapid recovery.

The following services are provided by our in-house clinical experts at no extra cost:

shieldCancer Work Support Service

Specialist counselling, physical rehabilitation, and return to work support for employees living and working with cancer, available at the point of a Group Income Protection claim. These services are delivered by Working Towards Wellbeing at an agreed discount.

shieldPsychological Therapy services

A stepped approach to supporting employees experiencing life-pressures and mental health problems. Ranging from lifestyle coaching and self-help strategies through to specialist psychological assessment and talking therapies, including cognitive behavioural therapy.

shieldMusculoskeletal (MSK) Solutions

Workplace ergonomic assessments, physiotherapy and functional restoration programs to help and support employees trying to return to work following musculoskeletal pain and injury.

shieldComplex Case Review

If an employee has been absent from work for three months or more but is struggling to access co-ordinated clinical and vocational support, we can help by providing face-to-face assessment and return-to-work case management.

The case manager will:

  • source the appropriate assessment and treatment services
  • liaise with the health care professionals treating the employee
  • support the employee, and his/ her line manager, throughout the phased return-to-work process, either on the phone, or face-to-face.

In cases where specialist assessment and clinical services are required to facilitate an employee’s recovery and return to work, we can provide these through our trusted rehabilitation partners.

We’ll always combine the most appropriate intervention measures and rehabilitation techniques to encourage a rapid recovery, which could also help reduce the costs involved for your client’s business, such as sick pay, extra resource costs and reduced productivity.
