The app that offers a flexible, cost effective way to help staff stay healthy
Tech-savvy workers want more
Gone are the days when a printed newsletter, once a month, was a great way to communicate with your employees. It’s the digital age and (apparently) more people own a mobile device than a toothbrush.
From laptops and smartphones to apps and portals, employee engagement is evolving. Your people are hungry for instant, convenient services and information from the palm of their hands. And it’s not just your younger team members that are plugged in, technology use in older generations is growing quickly, too.
Company benefits packages are also evolving. More than ever, the best employees are looking for perks that suit them, and the right reward package could swing the balance of a job decision. Great benefits help retain staff too; when your team are happy and feel looked after, they’re more likely to stick around.
A digital health service available, anytime and everywhere
Traditionally companies have offered private medical insurance packages to employees, but this reactive style of healthcare does little to mitigate serious conditions and is of little use day to day. babylon provides proactive healthcare, it’s like putting a doctor, therapist and personal trainer, all rolled into one, in your employee’s pockets. It deals with the day to day health issues that keep your team functioning at their highest capacity. The best bit? It’s all accessible through your mobile phone via an award winning app.

Health and wellbeing is just as important to the employer as the employee; companies like Boots, Citigroup and HP are turning to babylon to help them keep a healthy workforce that are more productive, more innovative and take less time off.
One babylon user strained his back. It was so painful he was struggling to move, and going about his day to day tasks was a challenge. He had a really important client presentation coming up, and postponing wasn’t an option. He called his doctor’s surgery. A GP couldn’t see him for three days and he couldn’t get a telephone referral for 36 hours. He felt frustrated, he needed a quicker solution.
Then he remembered a briefing they’d had at work; all employees at his company got a free subscription to babylon. He hadn’t used it before, but he thought it was worth a try. He downloaded the app and within minutes he had arranged a consultation with a GP, who gave him a referral to see a physio later the same day. He got treatment for his back and was able stay on track for his important presentation.
Another babylon user is the managing director of a big company. He suffers from a minor illness and needs repeat prescriptions. He used to have to wait weeks for GP appointments and take whole mornings off work to get there. This didn’t suit his lifestyle and he was getting frustrated.
Then one day, a client introduced him to babylon. He downloaded the app, started a month’s trial and was immediately converted. He no longer had to waste time jumping through hoops to get his medication. He could arrange and have a doctor’s consultation from anywhere, including his desk, so his workday never skipped a beat.
