The ties between financial, mental and physical health – and what it means for employers

Most would classify insurance as a financial industry. And, they wouldn’t be wrong. At its core, insurance is a financial transaction where people and organizations pay for financial protection from the unexpected. Looking at it that way, however, is also a bit of a simplistic approach.
