Workplace wellbeing

According to the Office of National Statistics, in 2016 an estimated 137.3 million working days were lost due to sickness or injury in the UK. Employers are actively investing in workplace wellness programmes to support their employees improve their health. 

Insurers are committed to improving health and wellbeing in the workplace so that employees can better understand and manage their health.

Insurers can do this by:

  • Offering comprehensive health assessments
  • Introducing initiatives aimed at improving your physical activity
  • Offering incentives for healthy life styles

Workplace wellness programmes are designed to support employees manage their health and prevent or delay the onset of illness. Firms with healthier employees are more likely to have higher levels of staff retention, a motivated workforce and increased productivity.
