Personnel Today - Communicate mental wellbeing benefits of group risk to all employees, ahead of World Suicide Prevention Day (10 September)

Rates of female suicide in the UK are at their highest in a decade, up 3.8%* on last year, nonetheless, men are three times more likely to commit suicide. GRiD is urging employers to ensure they communicate the mental wellbeing support available via group risk products to all employees. In addition, the organisation suggests that HR teams should ensure that they too know how to access the support available from their group risk provider.

Group Risk Development (GRiD), the industry body for group risk, believes that whilst the taboos around mental health are slowly subsiding, suicide is a topic that is rarely aired in the workplace. However, help and support for employers and their workforce is accessible through group risk products (employer-sponsored life assurance, income protection and critical illness).
