Bro McFerran, Managing Director at Allstate Northern Ireland commented "As a major employer in Northern Ireland, we understand the importance of health and wellbeing for our employees in helping us to retain and recruit the best talent to our organization. We have a saying at Allstate that it's not just a job it's a way of life, we want to make it easy for our employees to have a good worklife balance that revolves around their family or leisure activities. We know that those employees in turn are more engaged, loyal and happy in their work. This leads to reduced absenteeism and higher employee retention, allowing us to keep the knowledge capital that we have built over the years."
