Smart Pension

When online pension and tech experts Smart were thinking about improving staff benefits, health insurance was at the top of their list – and they found Equipsme a great fit for their business.

Martin Warner, Director of Talent at Smart, explains: “Health and well‑being are really important to us as a business,” says Martin. “For us, it’s obvious: if you look after people and encourage them to look after themselves, they’ll be more engaged and more productive.

“What we liked about Equipsme was that it offered people not just peace of mind but real, practical benefits. We wanted a provider that was going to be able to help people get things sorted fast – for example, being able to secure a physiotherapy appointment without the wait, or getting to see a GP at home on the sofa after work.

“I’m particularly pleased we took up the ‘stress support’ option, so our employees had access to some support during what’s been one of the most stressful periods of working life for everyone.”

So far Equipsme has proved pretty popular with staff. “People tell us it’s really good, it’s really quick, they like being able to get everything they need from an app, and they like being able to choose to add on family members themselves. That was particularly important to us when selecting a provider.”
