Providing health and wellbeing support can positively impact employee outcomes at work, according to industry body Group Risk Development (GRiD).

The survey of over 500 HR decision makers showed the impact of offering health and wellbeing support to employee's throughs benefits packages, including group protection.

GRiD found that 43% of employers saw an increase in employee loyalty and engagement throughout the workforce because of additional support measures.

A further 42% of respondents said offering health and wellbeing support can help mitigate absenteeism, while 37% stated it helps employees fulfil business objectives more efficiently.

Meanwhile, 36% of employers noted that by supporting employee's health and wellbeing needs, employees are more"fit, healthy, and engaged" with their work which can lead to better financial outcomes.
