Multinational hospitality company Accor has launched a wide-ranging employee wellbeing solution along with a financial wellbeing scheme for its 4,500 UK employees across its hotels and London support office.

Together, the benefit solutions – from employee benefits and wellbeing provider Vivup – will support Accor’s UK employees with physical and mental health as well as the cost of living.

From menopause, to virtual GP to financial wellbeing

The wellbeing solution, Your Care Plus, is a health management platform which offers a range of wellbeing products and services with a focus on positive, proactive care. It provides evidence-based interventions and support tools to help build mental resilience, strengthen people’s emotional, physical and financial wellbeing, supporting them in and out of the workplace.

In addition to wellbeing assessments, face-to-face and virtual counselling, online GP services, financial wellbeing tools, access to EAP support and counselling, the platform also provides a specialist menopause helpline. Personal goal setting services and access to a wide range of wellbeing resources are also included.

The menopause helpline offers a range of resources to help colleagues understand and manage menopausal symptoms.

Also launching is the Lifestyle Savings scheme which helps people afford the things that matter, with access to over 1,150 ways to save money.

Fran Carr, Talent and Culture Director UK/I&Nordics, Accor Hotels, said:

“We needed a one-stop solution for our diverse and multi-generational UK-based workforce which would be easy to use and accessible while bringing together existing and new benefits.

“Vivup’s platform does all this and more. The menopause helpline, in particular, will support a large proportion of our employees.”

Jilly Brown, Client Acquisition Director of Vivup, said:

“We are delighted to partner with Accor to provide such an important range of benefits to their UK staff. The Your Care Plus platform focuses on providing positive, proactive care from access to counselling 24/7 365 days a year, EAP support and health and fitness apps, while the financial wellbeing provision will help enormously with the cost of living.”

Accor already provides a range of existing benefits for their staff, including eye care vouchers, a Cycle to Work scheme, up to 50 percent discounts in Accor hotels and restaurants, additional holidays, Merlin Entertainment discounts and a generous pension scheme. These are now available to employees on Vivup’s benefits platform.
