Press release 21 September 2021.
Working To Wellbeing specialises in helping people with long-term physical and mental health conditions, and has developed an evidence-based framework to help people improve their health and remain at work or return to work when they’re ready. Working with insurers, benefit providers and employers, they’ve joined GRiD to work closely with the industry and share their insights.
Dr Julie Denning, managing director & chartered health psychologist, Working To Wellbeing, said: ‘This is a pivotal time for the group protection industry, following the Government’s long-awaited response to the “Health is everyone’s business“ consultation on proposals to reduce ill-health-related job loss1 and acknowledgement that the industry has an important role to play. We look forward to working with other members of GRiD to share our experience.’
Members of GRiD benefit from industry networking opportunities, sharing best practice, exclusive access to research and to work with industry leaders in group risk.
Paul White, chair of GRiD said, ‘As group risk spreads its net ever-wider to offer support for mental and physical health and wellbeing alongside financial wellbeing, we increasingly work with a wider network of players. This is great for the industry, as well as employers and their staff: we all benefit from working more closely together and we very much welcome Working To Wellbeing into the fold.’

Notes for editors
Group Risk Development (GRiD) is the industry body for the group risk sector, promoting the value to UK businesses of providing financial protection for their staff, enhancing their wellbeing and improving employee engagement. Our membership includes insurers, reinsurers, intermediaries and those operating in (or with other interests in) the UK group risk market. Together this forms a collective wealth of experience built over many years. Under the chairmanship of Paul White (head of technical, Howden Employee Benefits & Wellbeing) GRiD aims to promote group risk through a collective voice to Government, policymakers, stakeholders and employers.
GRiD works with government departments and regulators involved in legislation and regulation affecting group risk benefits, and with other organisations involved in the benefits and financial protection arenas. GRiD also seeks to enhance the industry's standing by encouraging best practice and by participating in industry-wide initiatives such as the professional qualification in group risk managed jointly with the Chartered Insurance Institute.
GRiD’s media activity aims to generate a wider awareness and understanding of group risk products and their benefits for employers and employees.
GRiD's dedicated spokesperson, Katharine Moxham, provides expert media comment on a full range of group risk issues.
