Digital health app Peppy (opens a new window) today announces a new partnership with Lockton, the world’s largest privately-owned global insurance broker, to offer gender-specific health services for the employees of UK-based clients.
Peppy is a digital health app that is changing the way employers care for their people, supporting under-served areas of healthcare. Through Peppy’s app, the employees of Lockton’s clients can access personalised support from leading health practitioners for family and reproductive health, including: trying to start a family, becoming a parent, going through the menopause, and specialist support for both men’s health and women’s health.
The health and benefits landscape is changing rapidly, with a greater expectation from employees to be supported across their daily wellbeing, key health journeys and life stages. The increased competition to attract and retain talent means companies are seeking new, innovative, and cost-effective ways to support their people. The emergence of digital healthcare opens up new opportunities to deliver support that meets current expectations – this new partnership further expands Lockton’s offering, making a tangible difference to the relationship between their clients and their client’s employees.
Chris Rofe, Partner at Lockton Employee Benefits, said: “People’s lives have changed significantly over the past couple of years and we’re seeing a greater focus than ever on digital solutions and improved accessibility for healthcare. This partnership builds on the compelling offering Lockton has built for clients in the employee benefits space. The fact that Peppy’s proposition is delivered directly by clinical practitioners is the key differentiator that is going to be a great support to our clients’ employees.”
Mridula Pore, CEO and Co-Founder at Peppy, said: “Lockton is on the frontline, listening to what HR and benefits teams want for their colleagues. They hear directly from companies how important it is to offer support for menopause, men’s health and other gender-specific areas of health. We’re delighted they’ve chosen to partner with us to deliver those services and look forward to working together.”
