Explore our latest Perspective - Healthcare: The case for inclusion
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the disparities that exist among many different groups of people, and the need for greater healthcare equality has never been more relevant. The traditional ‘one size fits all’ approach to health insurance is outdated, as customers demand a more personalised approach which meets their diverse set of needs. For too long, benefits have failed to evolve in recognising elements of health which have historically been seen as taboo or inadvertently discriminated against including race, sexual orientation, disability, mental health, gender or any other distinct category. To explore this topic in more detail we were joined by a panel of market leading voices including Dame Inga Beale, Portfolio Director and Former CEO, Lloyd’s of London and Tony Wood, Senior Partner, UK & Ireland Managing Director Mercer Marsh Benefits who shared their views and personal experiences on why inclusion matters, and the crucial role IPMI healthcare benefits play in creating more diverse workplaces of the future.
