Health Insurance & Protection - Taking a case-by-case approach to wellbeing ‘expensive and inconsistent’

GRiD says employers should have formal packages to support employees.

Dealing with serious employee health and wellbeing issues on a case-by-case basis is expensive, inefficient and inconsistent, GRiD has warned.

Research by the group risk association found most businesses provide employee support on an individual basis rather than putting in place a formal, pre-arranged package or contract to support them. 

The survey found over half (52%) of employers have supported an employee dealing with bereavement on a case-by- case basis, followed by 12% funding one-off emotional support themselves.

Another 43% have supported an employee diagnosed or dealing with a serious illness on a case-by-case basis, 13% through protection insurances and 11% funding one-off emotional support themselves.
