Whether they serve to protect your employees or your business, your company’s insurance programmes play a major role in supporting your CSR initiative and contribute to your company’s long-term success.

CSR + EB = QLW

One of the main objectives of a CSR initiative is to improve the quality of working conditions and employee relations, and employee benefits (EB) programmes can make a large contribution to the quality of life at work (QLW).

For example, the health insurance offerings of some insurers include wellness programmes that reduce illness-related absenteeism by engaging employees to take  responsibility for their health.
Whether in the form of health-related advice, on-site fitness classes or personalised programmes, the wellness movement is rapidly gaining momentum that is driven by the exponential development of applications and connected devices.

CSR isn’t just about employee health

In addition to health, insurance programmes can support employees in other areas, such as returning to work after an extended sick leave, end-of-career management as retirement approaches, or retirement savings plans that include socially responsible investment funds.

Companies that have implemented a CSR certified insurance programme also enjoy the benefits of specialist expertise and dedicated procedures. For example, the identification of internal and external risk areas can improve work safety, reduce energy bills, administrative expenses and other structural costs, and boost profits.

 

A well-rounded CSR initiative encompasses the environment, employees and society in general. When comprehensively supported by a tailored insurance programme it will be even more effective in attracting, engaging and retaining quality employees and in improving the bottom line.
