Engage Mutual expands to enter the corporate health cash plan market

Friday, 09 September 2011

The last year has been a time of substantial growth for Engage Mutual and as an organisation it has seen this growth underpinned by a strong financial performance. Engage Mutual is one of ICMIF’s UK-based members with its head office in Yorkshire.

On August 9, 2011 Engage Mutual announced the acquisition of National Friendly’s sales team and the One Fund, a health cash plan targeted at the corporate market. In addition to the new sales team, more people were recruited as part of the consolidation of the recently acquired business of Ecclesiastical Life into the Harrogate office. Engage Mutual are also hoping to further drive and support new business with the addition of five roles into the customer contact centre.

Andrew Haigh, Chief Executive at Engage Mutual commented,

“Building on a successful year, we are delighted that recent developments have created additional employment opportunities in the local area.”

“As a customer owned business, a sound financial base and continued strong performance are essential. Growing and developing the team in our Harrogate centre to keep in step with the success of the business will ensure that we are able to improve products and services and deliver additional benefits to our members.”

On the acquisition of the ‘One Fund’ health cash plan, Andrew said,

"This is a significant step forward in establishing Engage Mutual as a key player in the UK healthcare market … One Fund offers a genuinely customer focused proposition benefiting both the claimant and the employer who can be confident that the flexible nature of the benefits will contribute to a healthier workforce.”
