About Heka:

For businesses, investing in employee wellbeing is crucial. It leads to increased resilience, better engagement, reduced sickness absence and higher performance and productivity.

The problem is wellbeing benefits often cater for just one area of health and wellbeing, like gym memberships or mindfulness apps. These are then used by only a small percentage of teams meaning that not every employee's needs are met. 

That’s where Heka comes in.

Heka offers over 5000 wellbeing experiences, products and services across 100s of wellbeing categories on one platform. With this, companies can provide one inclusive benefit for diverse teams, and the immediate health and wellbeing needs of employees are met.

150+ companies currently use Heka including the likes of THIS, Ocean Bottle, Oxford Biomedica and Medallia.
