Additional free counselling sessions and updates to mobile app and online portal
Legal & General has renewed its partnership with Health Assured, the third-party which provides early intervention programme and rehabilitation services through its group income protection policies.
L&G has also announced a series of updates to the employee assistance programme (EAP) service it provides to policyholders through Health Assured.
Up to eight free counselling sessions are available over the phone, via online video and in person for group income protection policies; there's a new, updated mobile app and wellbeing resources such as webinars, health assessments and factsheets available via the app and online portal.
Additional employer and employee benefits include a range of support and guidance on everyday issues, including bespoke line manager training and critical incident support.
"We believe Health Assured's expertise in providing EAP is the best in the market and their industry experience complements Legal & General's wider group protection proposition extremely well, as we are both dedicated to providing employees with quality support, when they need it most," said Chris Ford, head of employer services, group protection, at Legal & General.
"Life is full of challenges and through the enhanced features of our EAP we are making it even easier for employees to have access to expert help and facilitate their return to work more quickly. We look forward to working with Health Assured and providing one of the most comprehensive EAP services on the market."
