          where we are


          Employee Assistance Programme

          Despite clear evidence that good workplaces have higher productivity, greater employee retention and improved customer satisfaction, levels of stress and mental ill-health are ever rising.

          Generali’s employee assistance programme (EAP), delivered by LifeWorks is a confidential resource offering information, advice and support, 24/7, 365 days a year to employees and their families – from partners to children and also dependant parents and parents-inlaw.

          Online access, via the employee app or by telephone, is provided to experts in their fields such as lawyers, independent financial advisers and accredited counsellors. It also includes some valuable resources for the client company. 

          Who Can Access The Service

          Generali is pleased to extend the Employee Assistance Programme to all UK employees of our UK GIP policyholders and their eligible dependants. Subject to agreement, this can also include full access for those UK employees not currently insured under the policyholder’s GIP plan, and their eligible dependants.

          Eligible dependants include the employee’s spouse/partner, any parent, brother or sister living in the same household; any legal dependant under the age of 21 and in full time education; any other legal dependant who is dependent on the member because of disability; or any non-household-resident dependant parent of the employee.

          Employers are recommended to make independent arrangements to declare any taxable benefit to their local tax office.

          Bereavement Counselling & Probate Services

          Members of Generali Group Life Assurance (GLA) schemes have access to Bereavement Counselling and Probate Helpline Services. These services are also available to the GLA scheme member’s immediate family in the event of the member’s death and to the member themselves should they suffer bereavement, or in the event they are appointed to administer a deceased person’s estate. Bereavement Counselling and Probate Helpline Services are provided as a standard feature of the Generali UK Group Life Assurance (GLA) product at no additional cost to the policyholder.
