28 Employee conditions Everyday health Topdanmark wants to give its full support to our employees’ good health. We believe that it creates wellbeing and job satisfaction, and this in turn provides a strong platform from which we can deliver the best service to our customers. In practice, the employees are offered a range of health-related initiatives, which can be made use of when required. For example, cycling activities such as the ‘Cycle to work’ campaign, healthy canteen food and a health check. Stress prevention In Denmark, generally speaking, the number of people who take sick leave because of stress is increasing, and at Topdanmark, we experience an increase among our employees. Therefore, we have initiated efforts to prevent incipient stress and take care of employees suffering from stress. All our employees have the option of anonymous stress counselling, provided by experienced psychologists. This service can be used as a first step for employees or their colleagues who experience symptoms of stress. In this way, employees can get help quickly without having to get a referral from a family doctor first. In cases of serious and long-term stress, a programme tailor-made for the individual is available as part of the employee health insurance scheme. My Health – offer to the employees In 2017, employees who were at risk of getting lifestyle diseases were offered an individual health programme, My Health. 30 programmes were made available to the employees for a minor self-payment – each programme lasted for 3-4 months. We have previously tested similar programmes among our employees, and they have provided unique results within long-term and sustainable lifestyle changes. Plans for 2018 Another 30 My Health programmes will be offered. Absence due to illness below industry level As regards absence due to illness, Topdanmark’s goal is that it should be below the outline for the insurance business. During the period, 2011-2015, Topdanmark was on par with the business, while in 2016 from which the latest statistics are provided, we were marginally below the industry level. This is very satisfactory. In 2017, the percentage for absence due to illness at Topdanmark was 3.0% - at the finalisation of this report, the result for the insurance business is not yet published. See the statistics for absence due to illness from the last five years on page 35.
