Resolution Re recognised by mental health group
Resolution Re, the specialist Bermudian life reinsurance company, has earned a gold designation under the Bermuda Mental Health Foundation’s Mindful Employer Certificate Program.
The foundation determined that the Resolution Life Group Holdings subsidiary’s existing workplace policies in the areas of human resources, employee insurance benefits including wellness and mental health coverage, flexibility between in-office or work from home and code of business conduct are exemplary.
A statement from the foundation said that it launched the Mindful Employer Certification (MEC) Program as an initiative that seeks to encourage, highlight and cultivate company cultures that put mental health as a workplace priority.
The Mindful Employer Certification signifies that employers are in compliance with existing legislation while challenging them to develop, implement or enhance sound policies and practices around mental health.
The MEC Program begins with a baseline assessment of a company’s existing policies and practices and measures them against a set of key standards aimed at fostering a mentally healthy and stigma-free workplace.
“Resolution Re is honoured and delighted to be recognised as having achieved the Gold Standard of the Mindful Employer Certification Program,” said Resolution Re CEO Steve Hales.
“We are proud to carry this designation as a sign of our commitment to promote and support positive mental health in our workplace: it is, and always will be, a key part of our holistic approach to wellbeing.”
Chairman of the foundation James Macdonald said that Resolution Re is commended for making the commitment to its employees and ensuring that they work in a mentally friendly environment.
He said: “We encourage more Bermuda-based companies, both local and international, to join Resolution Re as mental health concerns, especially during this global pandemic, have reached a critical level.
“Ultimately, Resolution Re responded to the call to act and we believe its employees will continue to flourish in such a positive work environment.”
