As a people-first organisation, the leadership team at Orthoplastics wanted to go above and beyond when providing their employees with a wellbeing strategy. So, in 2021, they selected YuLife to be their employee life insurance and wellbeing provider. HR Business Partner Tandy Kehoe shares her experience.

So far, the Orthoplastics team have been enjoying YuLife and have seen some great engagement.  “The take up and buzz around the workplace has been extremely positive”, Tandy shared.

A factor that made the YuLife proposition attractive to Orthoplastics was that it would benefit all of their workforce. YuLife stood out because its benefits would be accessible and valued by everyone, from head office to the factory floor. “Our culture is and always has been one of inclusivity, and the benefit has been offered to all employees”.

“The take up and buzz around the workplace has been extremely positive.”

In addition to being a gateway to important insurance and wellbeing services, YuLife serves as a tool to inspire healthy lifestyle changes through the adoption of small, daily habits.

Everyday, employees are rewarded for positive habits, like walking and meditating, with YuCoin - YuLife’s currency of wellbeing, which can then be redeemed for vouchers at leading retailers such as Amazon, ASOS and M&S..

The team at Orthoplastics actively use the company leaderboard within the app, where colleagues compete to reach the top of the podium for walking the most steps. This healthy competition has inspired more healthy behaviours and community spirit amongst the team. “Over 70% of employees are involved in the leaderboard.”

Tandy herself is an avid user of the app and has started being more active as a result, “walking more” than before! It seems YuLife has been incorporated perfectly into Orthoplastics mission to build a wellbeing solution that would benefit their entire workplace.

“Over 70% of employees are involved in the leaderboard.”
