Post-Covid, is often described as Long Covid, but what is it? Well, Post-Covid is the common term used to describe signs and symptoms that last for longer than four weeks after getting Covid-19. The statistics on the prevalence of Post-Covid are continuing to evolve, with the Office of National Statistics estimating that 1.3 million people in the UK were experiencing self-reported Long COVID at the end of December 2021.
As the number reporting Post-Covid may increase, it’s likely to have a significant impact on businesses of all sizes, as with the many thousands of people who are likely to suffer with long-term symptoms affecting their ability to work. We’re providing support and guidance around the topic of Post-Covid. Making sure you have access to our well-considered information.
Learn how to help protect your business from the impact of employee ill health.
Our Claims and Governance Director, Vanessa Sallows and her fellow Board members, discuss what businesses can do to protect themselves from Post-Covid Syndrome (Long Covid) and other conditions that can affect employees and the impact on the health of the business.
In this summary guide to the webinar, we’ve compiled key take outs with the aim of enabling HR managers and advisers to refer back to the information, to aid understanding of Post-Covid in the workplace, and to offer ongoing support and learning.
Recovery from Post-Covid can take time. For employers managing employees with Post- Covid, it can be difficult to find the right support or signposting for employees and it can also be hard for family and friends to know what to do. We've spoken to two employees who have suffered with the affects of Post-Covid. They told us about what helped them to recover, from the support they recieved, their own strategies that helped them cope, to the importance of time and space to rest and recover.
With our Group Protection proposition, we put the individual at the heart of everything we do. We see the person not the illness and that’s why our outcomes focussed approach to wellbeing focuses on enabling employees to Be Well. Get Better and Be Supported in the moments that matter most.
