Health services for employees

With our health policy, we want to create a healthy framework in the workplace. We offer our employees several initiatives that can be used as the individual wishes and needs. This includes access to office bicycles, massage by a professional, healthy food in the canteen and ongoing health checks.

We keep an eye on our employees' absence due to sickness, as we also consider it a sign of how the physical and mental well-being is among our employees. Our goal is for absence due to sickness to be lower than the Financial Sector Employer Association's statement for the entire insurance industry.




Together on mental health

For several years, Topdanmark has prioritised efforts in relation to mental health - partly in relation to prevention, and partly when the injury has occurred. This focus was strengthened in 2020, when we, as the first commercial pension company, entered a collaboration Together on Mental Health (Sammen om mental sundhed) - a cross-sector partnership initiated by the Ministry of Health. Thus, we commit ourselves to work to improve mental health in workplaces in Denmark.
 
Together on mental health is an initiative that aims to establish a binding collaboration with relevant stakeholders on mental health in the workplace. The target group is all workplaces in Denmark and all types of employees, including Topdanmark. The initiative is funded through the Financial Act and the partnership consists of 46 actors across the private and public labour markets.




Stress prevention

The number of people who are reported sick due to stress is generally increasing in Danish society. We also see this development among our own employees. Therefore, we have several initiatives that must both prevent initial stress symptoms and take care of the employees who are affected by stress.
 
As part of the prevention of stress and other illnesses, all Topdanmark's employees are offered a health check during working hours every other year. It focuses on mental, social and physical health, both inside and outside the workplace. In addition, all employees can receive anonymous stress counselling from experienced psychologists. In the event of severe and prolonged stress, we can offer an individually tailored course of treatment as part of the employee's health insurance.




Prevention of lifestyle diseases

Since 2016, employees at risk of getting lifestyle diseases have been offered an individual health course, My Health. Each course typically lasts 3-4 months. The courses have proven to give good results in long-term and sustainable lifestyle changes.
 
When we work with health, we do so based on Sustainable Development Goal 3.4 By 2030, early mortality due to non-communicable diseases must be reduced by a third through prevention and treatment, and mental health and well-being must be promoted.
