Help with mental wellbeing
Insurance broking can be a stressful environment with frequent deadlines, serious customer claims, intense competition, difficult market conditions and heavy regulation.
Many people facing clinical stress or anxiety may feel uncomfortable telling their employer that they need to take sick leave – something that would not be questioned for a physical complaint. Understanding mental wellbeing and the causes of mental ill-health has therefore never been more important for our sector.
