Health insurance plans for tech start-ups

Health insurance plans for tech start-ups

Equipsme offer award-winning health insurance plans that are flexible and innovative.

Some of the world’s leading and most innovative organisations fall within the tech sector – and they’re often innovating on how they run their businesses as much as on the apps, services and platforms they design and deliver.

Attracting and retaining top talent is key for tech start-ups like yours, and benefits like health insurance could help make your business stand out from the crowd.

Healthcare is increasingly one of the most sought-after benefits, with 57% of working Brits even prepared to sacrifice salary to secure it.  But if resources and budgets are tight or uncertain, it can be really hard to know where to begin…

Our business health insurance plans for tech start-ups make healthcare benefits a realistic possibility by making them simple, practical, and affordable. We want to help you help your people stay fit and well, and get back to work faster if they’re ill or injured.

How much does company health insurance for tech start-ups cost?

We understand that tech start-ups have very different budgets, which is why our health insurance plans start at just £8 per person per month, with the most popular, comprehensive plan costing just £33 per person per month.

But it’s not just the price that makes them so suitable for growing tech businesses. They’re also flexile, and easy to administer – so you don’t need an entire HR department to get set up.

Important health benefits for tech start-ups

The best health insurance plans for tech start-ups need to be simple, and scalable. You need a plan that can grow with you, that’s going to be sustainable, and not a drain on your resources.

Do tech start-ups generally offer health insurance plans to their employees?

You don’t have to offer company health benefits as a tech start-up, but it’s worth looking around at what competitors in your chosen market are doing. Tech businesses today are often seen as the trailblazers of employee perks, and at the top of everyone’s list is excellent business health cover.

Equipsme offers affordable and accessible business health insurance plans to enable your tech start-up to offer a great employee benefits package for your employees – helping you to attract and retain the top people needed to help your business thrive and grow.
