Leading disability insurer Unum has been named 'Rehabilitation Provider of the Year' at the 2007 Rehabilitation First Awards, which were held on 13th July 2007 at the Kensington Roof Gardens in London.
The judges gave particular praise to Unum's account management processes, which they cited as a major factor in the decision to hand them the award.

Joy Reymond, Head of Rehabilitation Services at Unum, says:

“When it comes to protecting against the impact of long-term employee sickness absence, no business can afford to take shortcuts. Sickness absence can play havoc with any company's bottom line, regardless of their size and, moreover, can have devastating effects on the morale and productivity of all the company's employees.”

“For many years, Unum has been supporting employers and their staff during these often traumatic times, helping them to safeguard one of their most valuable resources. Our in-house team of experts provide crucial rehabilitation support, absence management and disability guidance to facilitate a safe and timely return to work for their staff. We are absolutely delighted to see our hard work recognised in this way.”
