TORONTO, June 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Morneau Shepell, a leading provider of employee and family assistance programs, is pleased to announce it will be working together with Dublin-based, international health and life insurance company, Allianz Worldwide Care, to provide a range of specialist health and wellness support to expatriate workers around the world, as a core component of Allianz's Corporate Assistance services.
"Morneau Shepell is very excited about this new global partnership," said Stephen Liptrap, Executive Vice President, Morneau Shepell and General Manager, Shepell. "Through Morneau Shepell's worldwide network, Allianz will be providing access to immediate and confidential, culturally relevant counselling 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
