Vivup, a leading employee benefits provider to public and private sector employers, announced today that it is acquiring Work&Life Partners.
Work&Life Partners supports HR and DEI so that organisations can provide a simple, affordable platform to help employees navigate and manage their family caring needs – childcare, senior care or pet care.
Vivup is the number one employee benefits provider in the public sector, serving NHS trusts, local authorities and blue light organisations. It is experiencing rapid private and SME market growth and across public and private sector serves 800 clients and supports over 2 million employees.
Simon Moyle, CEO of Vivup, said: “Lindsey Doe and her team at Work&Life Partners have built a brilliant platform and product. It allows organisations to assign a budget to their teams to ensure that if there are any unexpected childcare, senior care or pet care difficulties then support is available that allows the employee to be at work, knowing their care needs are being met. This works particularly well as employees are juggling many daily issues, not least teacher strikes and illness.
“The acquisition of Work&Life Partners enhances the Vivup proposition and is another step forward in our five-year strategy to deliver further value to our customers. It helps us bring important and innovative benefits to employers so they can support childcare, senior care and pet care needs within their teams.”
Lindsey Doe, CEO of Work&Life Partners, added: “We are joining the Vivup team at a time of great organisational change in the industry. Employees need more support than ever to transition to new work styles, whether full, flexi or part time. By supporting employees for any care complexities, employers will be ensuring their employees are supported so they can better focus, while also helping reduce organisational absenteeism and increase productivity. We are excited for the journey ahead”.
