Protect your people

Caring for your business & employees

Having the right staff can make or break a business, so it makes sense to look after the ones you’ve got. Our workplace protection offers financial, emotional and practical support when your employees need it most. We’ll also help you manage long-term absence and even support a grieving family if an employee dies.


Look after your business and employees with the UK’s number one group protection provider. Our workplace protection products look after your business, employees and their loved ones, if they fall ill or pass away.

We include a wide range of support services with our policies that support your business and improve your employees’ wellbeing. Whether it’s 24/7 access to remote GPs, expert guidance during important life events or support from our in-house team of absence specialists, you’ll receive more than financial protection with us.

At Canada Life, we don’t just help you provide financial security to your employees in a time of need, we also help provide the care, support and reassurance they need to face the future - whatever that future looks like.

Canada Life – caring for your business and your greatest asset – your people.
