In North America, more than 150 million employees access their healthcare through the company they work for. Toronto’s League has tapped into this market.
The Canadian company earlier this year launched Health Benefits Experience, a data-driven platform designed to provide a single access hub for employees to engage with their health, lifestyle and benefit programs. HBX, as League calls it, acts as a “front door” to healthcare via an integrated ecosystem of over 100 insurance carriers, healthcare partners, and HRIS systems.
According to data from Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 90% of employees use multiple systems to access their benefits, creating complexity. No surprise, then, that 63% of employees don’t know how to best leverage their benefits.
“Employee satisfaction with their benefit options hasn’t improved,” notes Mike Serbinis, League’s founder and CEO. “Employers face a challenge in building programs that improve employee health and engagement while managing business costs, but traditional point solutions have not been able to address the growing demand.”
Serbinis believes that in order to remain competitive, enterprises will need to deploy a health OS in the next 10 years. One step toward this mission was a recent investment in League from Workday Ventures.
“Our partnership with Workday helps accelerate that move, allowing employers to transform their employee experience with a focus on driving health outcomes, bettering healthcare costs, and improving competitiveness,” Serbinis affirmed.
League’s integration with Workday Human Capital Management will focus on creating a seamless digital health benefits experience. According to Leighanne Levensaler, managing director at Workday Ventures, it is an example of technology companies coming together to accelerate healthcare transformation.
“What attracted us to League was its ability to provide an engaging and consumer-like experience to access benefits and health resources, which in turn enables employees to live their best lives and do their best work,” said Levensaler. “As a Workday Ventures portfolio company, League will be able to provide customers with more accessible health and benefits delivery, enabling them to meet their employees where they are.”
League’s innovation has earned accolades. The company was the only Canadian startup to appear on CB Insights’ Digital Health 150 list this year, and notched a readers’ choice award for Best Service Provider at the HR Awards. The company’s Chief People Office, Kim Tabac, was awarded Woman of Distinction.
