Women's wellbeing in the workplace

It has perhaps taken a global pandemic to occur for recognition of, and action to commence on, the plethora of wellbeing issues that women face in the workplace. From physical to mental, social to financial, women have a very different set of wellbeing challenges, both within and without the workplace, that employers must take into account. From group risk cover to implementing support pathways, we’ll examine where progress is being made to support women’s wellbeing at work and where there are still barriers to overcome for advisers, providers and employers alike.

By attending this session delegates will be able to:

  • Explain the social and mental wellbeing elements that need to be taken into account when addressing women’s wellbeing
  • Summarise the importance of a personalised approach to alleviating issues for women’s wellbeing

Mental health, from supporting resilience to helping teams flourish

Human resilience is an important dimension in employee wellbeing and has been high on the business agenda for several years; especially the last two years. But can we go beyond resilience to help people to thrive and grow? In this session we will look at developing resilience. Using findings from AXA’s recent Global Mental Health report, we unpack the skills necessary for positive resilience, and look at how we can build beyond resilience to help employees take the next big step to flourishing.

By the end of this session delegates will be able to

  • Summarise some of the findings from AXA's Global Mental Health report
  • Describe the ways in which employees can develop their resilience and grow beyond resilience to flourish

Assessing the value in VAS

The support offered alongside an insurance pay-out can go a long way towards helping clients improve their mental, physical, and financial wellbeing. “Value Added” Services have become a crucial part of the insurance proposition, but it can be a lot to sort through to determine the actual value added. Services such as social prescribing have a serious impact of holistic wellbeing for individuals and communities, nutritional support and access to counselling can make a huge difference. Let’s take a look at where the “value” is and see what needs to be refreshed.

By attending this session delegates will be able to:

  • Describe how value-added services have become an important part of the protection proposition
  • Explain the importance of sorting through services to determine the value added

Bereavement: You are not alone

It has been, and continues to be, a difficult period for people in the UK, particularly for those experiencing the grief of losing a loved one. Life cover can be invaluable for those facing financial pressure due to bereavement, but those insurers who recognise the importance of holistic care and offer emotional support as part of the policy are the ones who are making a real difference, and in this session, we’ll look at why.

By attending this session delegates will be able to:

  • Understand the need for bereavement support services and how they can make a real difference for vulnerable customers plus aid deliver the improved outcomes that the New Consumer Duty will require
  • Measure the outcome of customer wellbeing when they have access to effective support services

Neurodiversity and inclusivity

Neurodiversity has become one of the key touchpoints when it comes to accessibility, on both individual and group levels, for insurance cover and wellbeing at work. Neurodiversity can bring tremendous abilities such as creativity, ability to focus, and encyclopaedic knowledge in particular fields to employers. It can also present a unique set of challenges that can create anxiety or feelings of isolation in neurodiverse individuals working alongside neurotypical, although these can be mitigated by good leadership practices. Here we will examine the steps advisers can take to promote diversity, inclusivity and engagement on neurodiversity in the insurance industry and beyond.

By attending this session delegates will be able to:

  • Explain the barriers which neurodiverse individuals are facing in the workplace
  • Identify the ways in which neurodiverse people can be made to feel more comfortable and valued in the workplace
  • Describe how making the insurance workplace more accessible to neurodiverse people can fill the talent gaps the insurance industry is facing

Social and Environmental: The fourth and fifth pillars

The last two years have seen a change in the priorities of workers. With working from home affecting social interactions and Gen Z prepared to turn down roles with companies with poor ESG ratings, it’s about more than just salaries, and it’s about more than just mental, physical and financial wellbeing. Employee interests are becoming more diverse and require group benefits to match. So, how do these two pillars affect wellbeing, and what can employment benefit advisers offer to improve social and environmental wellbeing?

By attending this session delegates will be able to:

  • Define wellbeing alongside its context of other social and environmental factors
  • Identify all of the wellbeing factors, and the links between them, when considering wellbeing in a social and environmental context
