Wellbeing at work has been rising up the corporate agenda in recent years as senior leaders have begun to recognise the long-term impact on their business of extended sick leave brought on by stress and burnout.

But the importance of wellbeing has been brought into even sharper focus since the outbreak of Covid-19. The nationwide lockdown meant that instead of many thousands of people heading to EC3, employees were working from home for an extended period of time, placing a mental strain on workers at every level of an organisation.

As with most corporate messaging, a (re)insurance business’s approach and attitude to wellness tends to come from the top. While the pandemic presented leaders with communication challenges, it also heralded the use of new tools and technologies to implement wellbeing procedures throughout an organisation.
