BrightDime is the financial wellness partner for Vitality Gateway Flex, offering organizations a new level of benefits choice, and the ability to respond to employees’ changing and diverse needs.
CHARLOTTE, NC — October 13, 2020 — Employers face a growing number of health and economic concerns including: the pandemic, rising costs of employee benefits, and meeting the needs of employees faced with financial stress. To help employers address these evolving challenges Vitality Group, a global health and wellness company committed to making people healthier, unveiled Vitality Gateway Flex a new way of boosting health and wellness engagement by offering more relevant choices to employees to meet their specific needs.
“This is a big win for everyone,” said David Stedman, CEO, BrightDime. “Together, Vitality and BrightDime will offer a best in class holistic well-being solution that inspires employees to change their financial habits, so they improve their overall well-being. This partnership will improve the overall health of employees and employers alike.”
As a strategic partner to Vitality, BrightDime will be offered to employers from a carefully vetted range of industry-leading coaching, lifestyle guidance, condition management and fitness applications that will be most impactful in meeting their employees’ diverse health needs. Employees then select the services they need based on personalized recommendations and can use employer-allocated funds to purchase applications of their choice, and if they want to use additional partners, they can opt to pay using their own funds at a preferred rate.
“We’re thrilled to be Vitality’s financial wellness partner,” said Dan Comisar, Strategy and Growth Officer at BrightDime. “With the launch of the innovative Gateway Flex marketplace, Vitality has truly decluttered the vendor management process for employers and has curated very relevant choices for employees as they manage the financial, emotional, and physical stresses in their lives.”
