[email protected] proposition is a suite of products, policies, advice and support to help our people in the UK business stay healthy, and also to look after them if they are unwell. Ultimately this isn’t about ‘doing wellbeing’ to our people – it’s all about giving people good options, advice and support, and then letting them make personal choices about what they want to get involved in – or not!
We’ve divided the proposition into four core themes so people can make sense of it and it doesn’t just feel like we’re throwing lots of ‘stuff’ at them! The themes are mental health, physical health, financial health and social/community wellbeing.
[email protected] includes things like free health checks, mindfulness sessions, healthy eating options, and mental health support. It also includes company-funded health products for our people, such as Cancer Essentials which is an insurance to give financial and practical support people who develop cancer for the first time, and Physio Essentials which covers people who develop any muscular-skeletal problems.
Mental health and dealing with stress are two important concerns that our people want to tackle, and mindfulness sessions can really help. We’re also encouraging people to download the Headspace app (which isn’t an Aviva product), which focuses on mindfulness and meditation.
Our Employee Assistance Programme is a very well-used and respected service which is independent of Aviva, so people can talk about any personal or family issues in confidence. The EAP can help our people around issues such as financial stress, life events like bereavement, childcare, relationship issues, etc.
We also offer financial wellbeing
Yes, financial wellbeing is one of the biggest causes of stress in many workplaces. As a financial services company we have a great deal of expertise around things like retirement and pensions planning, so for example we’ve created some simple materials and short films for people to run sessions in their own teams about planning for the future
We also offer our people lots of ways to save money as part of their reward package, so part of [email protected] is helping people understand how to make the most of the range of employee benefits we offer.
