Benenden health appointed to provide corporate health plan to York print business
30th August 2013
York-based mutual healthcare provider benenden health has been chosen by local printing and exhibition company, Colour Options, to provide health and wellbeing services to their staff.
The move by Colour Options comes shortly after the launch of a new partnership between benenden health and Leeds, York and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce which gives special offers to Chamber members. Local printing company, Colour Options are one of the first to sign up to have their employees benefit from the corporate health plan.
Laurie Parker, National Sales Manager at benenden health said: “It’s been great to reach out to local businesses such as Colour Options, as part of our new relationship with the Chamber of Commerce and to highlight the range of discretionary healthcare services we have available.
“Health and wellbeing in the workplace is a key issue for businesses – particularly within smaller organisations. Our corporate health plan offers employers peace of mind and helps to achieve a healthier, happier workforce. We look forward to working with Colour Options and other businesses in the local area to help achieve these goals.”
Signing up to benenden health’s corporate health plan means that employees of the York-based printing company will have access to a wide range of discretionary healthcare services and all can benefit from expert medical advice, prompt diagnosis and treatment, as well as 24-hour, UK based GP and Psychological Wellbeing Helplines.
Vivienne Taylor, HR Director at Colour Options said: “Being very much a small team, it is even more imperative to ensure the health and happiness of the workforce. The reassurance that Benenden Health is there to help when things go wrong, whether it be a health concern or the stresses of today's living, is a very comforting thought.
“The deciding factor for choosing benenden health was the fact that they have been around for over 100 years and are a trusted organisation. And we were also pleasantly surprised that for the first time we were able to provide a comprehensive healthcare plan at an affordable price.”
benenden health has been voted the UK’s most trusted healthcare provider for three years running in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
