YuLife, the tech-driven insurance company on a mission to inspire life, has announced a new insurance partnership with Capital One UK. Through the partnership, all 1470 of Capital One’s UK employees will now be covered by YuLife’s pioneering group risk insurance policies, which also encompass a range of additional services designed to give employees ownership of their financial, physical and mental wellbeing and reward them for looking after themselves.
Capital One’s collaboration with YuLife came as a result of a comprehensive market review by Willis Towers Watson, the employee benefits consultants of Capital One.
Among the provisions offered by the partnership are 24/7 virtual GP access, full service Employee Assistance Programme, daily rewards through the YuLife app in the form of vouchers from the UK’s leading brands, and the opportunity for associates to seamlessly review and manage their policy through the YuLife platform.

YuLife will help us offer the best possible working environment for our associates.”
