Tomorrow's Health & Safety - CANCER ACCOUNTS FOR ONE IN FIVE LONG-TERM ABSENCES

Research revealed by Group Risk Development (GRiD) shows that cancer and other acute medical conditions account for nearly one in five (19%) long-term absences among employers. Indeed, cancer is the main cause of claim across all group risk products (employer-sponsored life assurance, income protection and critical illness benefits). Yet employers are often surprised at the support that is offered routinely by group risk providers to help both themselves and employees when staff are diagnosed with cancer.

Support for employees

When employers implement group risk protection benefits for their staff they may do so with the primary aim of providing a financial benefit. But the benefit today goes far beyond that. Support is holistic, tailored uniquely for the individual and is designed to support the employee at every stage. 

It can include financial help, rehabilitation support, physiotherapy, occupational health, counselling and sign-posting to specialist charities. Support is both practical and emotional, it starts at diagnosis and continues during treatment and beyond.
