Legal & General and Me
Our Legal & General and Me campaign puts a spotlight on our customer's employees and our colleagues. The campaign provides a personal insight into the value our support provides in the moments that matter most.
It also showcases the passion and purpose of our colleagues here at Legal & General Group Protection, and how we work together to provide the ‘Legal & General difference’ that our clients and their employees deserve.
The Legal & General difference
Colleagues from across the Group Protection and individual retail business provide a personal view on the service they provide and talk about their role in providing the ‘Legal & General difference’, when it comes to helping employees that become long term absent from work due to illness or injury.
The support we provide
Sarah is one of our Group income protection claimants. Sarah was a Clinical Researcher, planning and running large scale clinical trials for a wide range of medical conditions, including Cancer. She held a high-level, high-pressure job for many years. Sarah kindly agreed to talk to us about the events that happened in her life that contributed to her becoming absent from work and how the support from Legal & General helped.
Emma shares her experience of the care and support she recieved from Legal & General, through her employer having a group income protection policy with us.
Emma was diagnosed with Diabetic Retinopaphy, which severely affected her eyesight.
As a result, Emma suffered from recurring haemorrhages in both eyes, had to undergo two surgeries and became long term absent from work.
How our employees make a difference
Nuriye is a Group Income Protection Claims Assessor at Legal & General. Nuriye talks about the parts of her job that she’s proud of, and how she feels we make a difference to employee's lives, with regards to taking the stress away from them when they’re going through tough times in their lives.
Our outcomes focussed approach to health and wellbeing
We’re extremely proud of our outcomes focussed approach to health and wellbeing, and in particular, the support we provide to long term sick or injured employees, in enabling them to get better and, where possible, return to work.
Under our Group Income Protection Get Better pillar, employees can be supported by an extensive range of vocational rehabilitation services. Our expert team build a care pathway around the individual by tailoring support to the employee’s needs and circumstances. We see the person – not the illness. Where appropriate, we'll fund support without the need for a GP referral or NHS waiting lists.
