Cover Magazine - Govt to work with insurers to create 'consensus statement' to guide employers on good work and health

The government has said it will work with the insurance industry to improve awareness among employers and self-employed people of the benefits protection policies can offer workers’ health and wellbeing.

The government yesterday evening published its response to a consultation titled ‘Health is Everyone's Business', which looked at proposals to reduce ill-health related job loss.

In its consultation response the government welcomed the idea of a ‘consensus statement', an idea developed by industry body Group Risk Development (GRiD) that would aim to improve employer guidance and awareness of the link between good work and good health and promote the use of expert-led support services.

The government also said it recognised the role that employers play in health and wellbeing, particularly in terms of making full use of the benefits within group income protection and helping employees remain in, or return to, work.
