CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LifeSpeak, the mental health and wellbeing platform for employee and customer-focused organizations, today announced a partnership with Lime, the online-only provider of affordable top-ups that complement UK public health services. Through the partnership, Lime customers will gain complimentary access to LifeSpeak's curated expert-led mental health and wellbeing education solution directly through the Lime platform.
"Over the last few years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of organizations around the world that are making our preventive mental health and wellbeing solution a key element of their employee benefits programs. Recognizing the value that these offerings bring to their employees, a growing number of these organizations, especially those in the financial services and insurance fields, are now adding our solution as a value-added service for their customers," said Michael Held, CEO, and founder of LifeSpeak. "We are excited to partner with Lime, a highly innovative and customer-focused organization that's leading the way in whole-person care to bring our services to their clients."
At launch, Lime will offer expert-led micro-learning videos and other digital content drawn from LifeSpeak's mental health and wellbeing solution to approximately 850,000 employees of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) via their distribution partners. The content will be carefully selected to help SME employers support their employees’ mental health and wellbeing as the UK emerges from lockdown. Lime will then extend the offering through additional channels and new services the company is launching this summer. Beyond the value-add of offering these resources to people seeking extra coverage on top of what the UK's world-class public health services provide, Lime will also provide access to all employees. Offering these resources as an employee benefit demonstrates Lime's commitment to ensuring a happy and healthy team and workplace.
“We are excited and proud to partner with LifeSpeak. After an incredibly challenging year for so many people, we look forward to working with LifeSpeak to support existing and potential customers across the UK with relevant, trusted, health and wellbeing content that will help them build the resilience they need to succeed,” said Shaun Williams, CEO, Lime Global Ltd. “At Lime, we are concerned with providing products, services, and resources that people will really use and that will make a tangible difference to their lives. What I love about LifeSpeak is the fact that their content is expert-led yet completely accessible. As such, this partnership will provide a valuable, practical tool for our mission to help people stay healthy for longer by providing super-simple, affordable top-ups to public healthcare.”
