PFS and PI

The article headlined, PFS members won’t get preferential PI (Money Marketing,March 3) misrepresents the arrangement between NCG and the Personal Finance Society.

The statement made by the PFS in November that NCG would take into account PFS membership (which carries with it qualification, adherence to a code of ethics and CPD) when assessing risk profile was agreed between PFS and NCG and both parties still stand by it.

Of course, others with some of these characteristics might well get some advantage but PFS members have them all and are readily identifiable.

EEF/Jelf Employee Benefits Sickness Absence Survey 2015

EEF stated in its 2015 EEF Manifesto that the UK’s growth prospects depend on people being fit, working and productive. Keeping people in work and helping people return to work is very important for the manufacturing sector. It means boosting productivity by getting people back into work as early as is possible, as well as fostering workplace cultures and environments that proactively manage individuals’ health conditions so that all can benefit from lower sickness absence outcomes.
