Healthcare for the few? That has been the popular theme of benefits such as PMI and Group Risk products as employees see them as the realm of the senior executive board.

This year’s Reward Live panel on group risk is pulling together a team of experts to dispel these myths – showing how group risk products can be relatively inexpensive for employers, and importantly, how they can be extended to the whole workforce – and the value of this to employees.

The panel will comprise of Daniel Crook, head of group income protection proposition, Canada Life; Katherine Moxham, GRiD Spokesperson; Chris Morgan, distributor partnerships manager, Ellipse and Matthew Whitehouse, head of regional sales, Unum.

Our experts will examine all aspects the group risk product – for example: early intervention, absence management and how employers can use EAPs, as well as looking at best practice for employers administrating the products they have.

Equally important will be an examination of how best to communicate the value of the benefits to employees – our panellists will be able to give practical guidance on communicating the benefits that employers have spent money on to see the best return on investment.

A further extension of the discussion will show how group risk can fit into the overall benefits programme – for example via a flexible or voluntary benefits package.

The comprehensive discussion will be a real myth-buster for both employers and employees!
