Flood Support

Supporting employees affected by floods

Natural disasters like floods can have a significant and ongoing impact on your people's health and wellbeing of your people. 

These floodings are affecting all of us, with Benestar's team members experiencing damage to their homes and losing access to everyday amenities and assistance. 

To ensure we maintain adequate support, we encourage you to call in any standard Critical Incidents requests on 1300 360 364 and select option 2 for Incident Management support. If you have any bespoke requirements please reach out to your Customer Relationship Manager.
