Enables employers to respond to growing demand for more accessible and personalised fertility treatment services
Reward Gateway, a leading global employee engagement company, has partnered with fertility treatment provider Apricity to offer tailored fertility journeys that match an employee’s specific needs, preferences and location. Employees will be able to seamlessly access the Apricity client portal through their Reward Gateway platform to explore fertility services, connect with Apricity advisors and develop a tailored treatment plan.
The addition of Apricity to Reward Gateway’s suite of employee benefits coincides with data from the NHS that reports 1 in 7 couples in the UK are affected by fertility issues. Employers are recognising that dealing with infertility can create massive employee stress, gaps in productivity, absenteeism, and even resignations. This is reflected in research that reveals how much employees value fertility support from their employers, including:
Rob Boland, COO at Reward Gateway, comments:
“Going through a fertility journey can be stressful and overwhelming and often negatively impacts personal wellbeing. That’s why we’re very proud to partner with Apricity, which makes fertility benefits accessible and inclusive, and as stress free as possible. It’s an important example of the innovative and inclusive benefits we know employees are looking for in today’s employer market.”
Caroline Noublanche, CEO at Apricity, comments:
“We are delighted to partner with Reward Gateway to make our unique model of fertility treatment available to numerous companies across the UK. This gives employees easy access through Reward Gateway’s platform to a convenient, modern and highly effective fertility treatment operated by Apricity virtual fertility clinic. Fertility diagnostics and treatments can either be embedded in their private medical insurance, provided as a flexi benefit or self-funded, depending on their company’s choice. This partnership enables employers to empower their employees with supportive family-building solutions and next-generation fertility care.”
