Aberdeen-based financial planning firm, Futura, has partnered with WorkLife by OpenMoney, the employee benefits platform, to bring high-quality employee benefits to a broader range of businesses across Scotland.
Through this close partnership, Futura will offer its corporate clients access to WorkLife’s online benefits and wellbeing platform, which supports all aspects of employee wellbeing through a suite of benefits and services, such as an NHS-approved mental wellbeing support app, financial wellbeing and money management tools, a range of employee savings and discounts and easy access to a range of sought-after insurances and protections.
The news demonstrates both Futura and WorkLife’s continued commitment to empowering every business around the UK with the tools to support and reward their employees.
Paul Shanahan, Director of Futura, commented: “Most employee benefits providers tend to focus on the physical aspect of wellbeing but, as the challenges facing workers evolve, we need to think differently about how we can support people in other essential areas too. What first drew us to WorkLife was its clear focus on supporting workers on five key pillars of their wellbeing – financial, mental, physical, social and environmental. In partnering with them, we will not only continue to strengthen our existing workplace benefits proposition, but also have a hand in driving a fundamental shift in how businesses of all sizes view their ability to support and reward hard working employees.”
Paul Chedzey, relationship director at WorkLife by OpenMoney, commented: “The past 18 months have shone a real spotlight on the need for workplace benefits that genuinely support people’s overall wellbeing. Until now, the options available to corporate advisers who want to provide high-quality, consultancy driven benefits for their clients has been fairly limited - we believe that Futura is the perfect partner to help us start bringing our offering to the wider adviser community and to take us one step closer to achieving our overarching aim of ensuring the types of benefits and support available at large corporates are made accessible and affordable to every employee in the UK.”
