Meantime Communications is a global B2B PR consultancy specialising in the logistics industry. “A small company with a big heart and a sustainable outlook - people, planet, profit.”

As a socially conscious, employee-first company, the wellbeing of their people is naturally a priority. This is what led founder and CEO Emma Murray to begin a partnership with YuLife. Here we share what attracted Emma to YuLife and why she’s so excited about the impact it will have on the everyday wellness of her team.

Meantime Communications were seeking a “scalable and affordable solution” to protect their team’s welfare: “We are always looking to be the best we can for our customers and our team. YuLife's approachable offering with all of the extra thought, including the app and the mental health support, is ideal”, explained Emma.

95% of small businesses don’t provide life insurance for their employees.

Yulife insures the lives of Meantime Communications employees, which gives them peace of mind and a sense of security. But it doesn't stop there. Their package includes YuMatter, an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) to help employees better manage personal or work-related challenges that may impact their mental health. The team also has access to Smart Health, which delivers round-the-clock and global coverage in the form of a 24/7 virtual GP.

A factor that made the YuLife proposition particularly attractive to Meantime was the wellbeing app which rewards employees for engaging in health-enhancing behaviours such as walking and meditation. Emma is eager to see how the gamified element will drive positive change among the team. She anticipates it will encourage everyone “to be more healthy and mindful.”

95% of small businesses don’t provide benefits such as life insurance for their employees - but Emma feels that the duty of care is actually greater for smaller companies such as hers.

She firmly believes that when people are happy and taken care of, they reward employers with increased loyalty and engagement. “It is even more important for a small business to punch above their weight when it comes to staff welfare, not only because it is the right thing to do, but also it is a good way of attracting and retaining great talent.”

YuLife is a tech-driven insurance company on a mission to inspire life and turn financial products into a force for good. Our bespoke policies give small and medium sized companies the opportunity to purchase life insurance cover for all their employees with one simple online portal. By harnessing the power of gamification and the latest behavioural science, YuLife rewards healthy living and puts everyday wellness within reach of everyone.
