HR Briefing - GRID WARNS AGAINST DEALING WITH SERIOUS HEALTH AND WELLBEING ISSUES CASE-BY-CASE

Dealing with serious employee health and wellbeing issues on a case-by-case basis is not only expensive but inefficient and inconsistent.

That’s according to GRiD, the industry body for the group risk protection sector, which has commissioned research that shows most businesses provide employee support on an individual basis rather than putting in place a formal, pre-arranged package or contract to support them.

For example, an employee recently diagnosed with cancer may have very complex needs such as requiring a second medical opinion; fast-track access to counselling to support mental health; support through treatment, rehabilitation; financial support; adjustments to their home; time off work etc.

It can be a minefield for employers to navigate this vast list of support-needs alone but many are choosing to do just that rather than rely on expert help that can be put in place and bedded-in beforehand.
