There’s been a big focus this year on wellbeing and the idea that a healthy body and mind can lead to a more positive outlook on life which in turn, can create a happier you. With this in mind, we created My Irish life, somewhere to celebrate our Irishness and take a look at some of the topics Irish people would like to know more about.
As a company, Irish Life has a comprehensive product range and we aim to give our customers clear and concise information so that they can understand it, the first time they read it. We were thrilled to be awarded “Best in the world at plain English” ahead of 12,000 other organisations from 80 countries. Irish people and their needs are always top of the agenda and we believe we know Irish Life.
As well as providing cover for life, pension and investment plans, we are committed to Irish lives through sport, the arts and charity events. We have proudly partnered with Healthy Ireland, the HSE and the National Office for Suicide Prevention and will invest €1million in the initiative to support the GAA’s Healthy Club Project as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility programme. We are delighted to have recently won the Best Corporate Social Responsibility category for this initiative at the second annual Sports Industry Awards. Each year we also select two charities to receive donations collected throughout the year; staff always give generously and this has been very successful.
It could be said that My Irish life is the next step for Irish Life, an extension of the culture that’s already in place. Our most recent success was receiving the Irish Heart Foundation ‘Healthy Eating at Work’ award which rewards excellence in food quality, preparation and health focus – as you can see, we like to practice what we preach.
We hope you enjoy browsing the hub as much as we enjoyed creating it!
