AIA holds workplace mental wellness trial
AIA is testing a corporate mental health program in partnership with medical technology group Medibio.
The six-month pilot encourages the insurer’s staff in Australia and New Zealand to monitor for symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress, with a “wellness snapshot” allowing participants to make improvements.
AIA CEO Damien Mu says people often reach out to their employers or support networks only in the latter stages of mental health issues. “We want to be involved in early intervention, education and awareness,” he said.
