Putting Simplyhealth Care for Life to the test
Simplyhealth is pleased to announce that The Great Run Company is the first company to pilot its new product that addresses the need to support employees in the workplace with Simplyhealth Care for Life.
Simplyhealth Care for Life provides practical advice and expert support to employees on issues surrounding healthy ageing and caring. With over 3 million people in the UK combining caring with paid work Simplyhealth, Care for Life is an essential provision to today’s workforce.
We’re delighted for the opportunity to work with The Great Run Company as they come on-board as our first company to pilot Simplyhealth Care for Life. The Great Run Company understands how challenging it can be for employees who juggle work with caring for a loved one, regarding Simplyhealth Care for Life as a pivotal part of their employee well-being offering.
We immediately saw the potential in Simplyhealth Care for Life and how this product will assist our staff in an area that is often ignored or under estimated. Employment Law hasn’t really addressed the support that many employees will require at some point in their life. We’re excited that Simplyhealth is piloting a solution to address this area of employee well-being in a new and innovative manner. We are thrilled to be supporting them in this initiative and look forward to rolling this out to our staff.
A study of 1,041 working carers showed that 42% said it had put a strain on their professional relationship and 71% said they felt lonely or isolated in the workplace as a result of their caring responsibilities. Simplyhealth Care for Life has been developed to help employers play a pivotal role in supporting their employees’ wellbeing by providing support from experts to help navigate the social care maze, including legal and financial advice.
