Sun Life invests heavily in employee wellness. We believe it’s an investment that pays off. Employee wellness underpins our ability to deliver excellent service to Clients and to attract and retain top talent. It also helps to support our high-performance culture.
We’ve been fostering employee wellness for years. The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the importance of our wellness programs to Sun Life’s resilience. That’s especially true for programs focusing on mental health.
We help our Clients achieve lifetime financial security and live healthier lives. We want the same for our employees. Through our Global Wellness Strategy, we aim to drive a culture of health and well-being for employees worldwide. In line with Sun Life’s Purpose, the global strategy centres on three pillars – mental, physical and financial wellness.
