Ecclesiastical unveils wellbeing guidance videos for brokers

Ecclesiastical has introduced a series of four videos, in partnership with motivational speaker and army veteran, Chris Moon, to help brokers manage stress and wellbeing. The initiative comes in response to the insurer’s 2019 Broker Wellbeing Survey, published in November, which found that over two-thirds of brokers experienced a mental health issue related to work in the past year, such as stress or anxiety.

The guidance videos feature Moon in conversation with commercial director at Ecclesiastical, Adrian Saunders, discussing how to recognise and manage stress, the importance of opening up and talking about mental health, and how to support others.

Saunders said: “While our 2019 Broker Wellbeing survey found that three in five brokers feel stressed at work, it also showed that as an industry, we are making positive progress towards building supportive environments and opening up about issues of wellbeing.

“We wanted to take the conversation forward and so we teamed up with Moon to explore how we can better connect with our wellbeing, recognise our stress triggers, build resilience and help those around us,” he added.

Former army officer, Moon became a double amputee after sustaining nearly fatal injuries while clearing mines in Mozambique in 1995.
