Dr. Chatterjee, widely regarded as one of the most influential medical doctors in the UK, will inaugurate the series on the 15th October, 2020 with a virtual event about 'The new world of work: How small businesses can create a cost-effective culture of wellbeing'. Dr. Chatterjee will discuss how employers can help their staff incorporate easy, healthy habits into their daily lives to bolster their mental and physical wellbeing. The upcoming virtual event will be followed by further events throughout the coming year, such as online question-and-answer sessions, video chats, and blog posts.
YuLife is the first digital life insurance platform to place policyholders' everyday health and wellbeing at the heart of their experience. YuLife equips members with an engaging, game-like app, through which users can access vouchers and discounts from Britain's leading brands in return for completing everyday wellness challenges, such as walking, cycling, meditation and mindfulness, thus creating a tangible incentive for healthy living. In this way, YuLife enhances workplace satisfaction for the 87% of British office workers who say that they would be more likely to stay with an employer who demonstrates a commitment to their wellbeing.
"I am delighted that we are launching this exciting new series together with a thought leader as influential and innovative as Dr. Chatterjee – one of the best-known practitioners of everyday wellbeing in the UK today," said Sammy Rubin, CEO and Founder of YuLife. "In a year when physical health and mental wellbeing are more valuable to us than ever before, creative methods are essential if we are to help people lead more balanced and holistic lifestyles. Dr. Chatterjee's ideas and experience are set to make a lasting difference to our efforts to improve workplace wellbeing by updating the very nature of insurance."
"I believe in making healthy habits as simple and accessible as possible," said Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, Chief Wellbeing Officer, YuLife. "People don't necessarily need to be gym buffs or meditation masters to feel physically and mentally healthy. YuLife has identified that the key to healthy living is about accumulating short, regular and effort-free bursts which boost concentration and performance during the course of a typical day. I am excited to work with YuLife's dedicated team as they continue to build products which have already had a proven impact on thousands of people up and down the country."
