The UK-based organisation says it wishes to support its membership of insurance professionals who are themselves doing their best to support a growing number of consumers finding themselves in ‘vulnerable conditions’.
The CII’s Wellbeing Hun offers on-demand health and wellbeing resources for insurance professionals, including articles, videos, webcasts and tailored content from Perks, the CII’s affinity benefits scheme.
Insurers can give their wellbeing a boost
Keith Richards, Chief Membership Officer of the CII, said: “We want to make sure that our members have access to additional support as they work to assist a growing number of consumers finding themselves in vulnerable circumstances due to the economic fallout of Covid-19. That is why, in addition to the practical professional support we already offer members to develop their skills, knowledge and network, we decided to launch a wellbeing hub offering support with mental and physical health issues.
“If insurance professionals are to effectively assist customers clients it is essential that they also take care of themselves and we encourage them to give their wellbeing a boost by visiting our Hub today, which offers resources to help them, their clients and others around them.”
The CII says it will continue to update its platform with wellbeing content and resources for the rest of 2021.
A recent study from Bupa in the UK revealed that employees have been hiding mental health conditions from managers during the global pandemic.
