Bennie, an employee benefits platform that provides an easy way to access and understand benefits, and Ginger, a provider of on-demand mental healthcare that offers real-time behavioral health coaching, therapy and psychiatry services, have partnered to help employees better access the resources they need to improve their wellbeing.
Bennie customers will now be able to access Ginger via Bennie’s Employer Marketplace, where administrators can browse and select benefit options to add to their organization’s offerings. Ginger provides users with various tools to help them learn how to manage anxiety and reduce stress, from on-demand behavioral coaching to a hub of curated mental health resources. Members can chat with a behavioral health coach within seconds or schedule a video call with a licensed therapist or psychiatrist within days.
“We are excited to support our members and their mental health through this strategic partnership with Ginger. We constantly hear from HR Leaders about their employees looking for more behavioral health resources. Our relationship with Ginger allows us to bring a best-in-class solution down market to support small and mid-size companies and their employees. This aligns directly with our mission to provide our customers with better benefits and to create a healthier workplace,” said Brett Davis, Vice President of Sales at Bennie.
More organizations are now investing in employee wellness programs and understanding that employee wellbeing is a priority. Having a resource like Ginger that offers employees personalized virtual care from the privacy of their phone at any time of the day or week is a modern and effective way to give them the support they need.
"Now more than ever, organizations of all sizes must lean in to support the mental health of their employees," said Dana Udall, Chief Clinical Officer of Headspace Health (the parent company of Ginger). "We're thrilled to partner with Bennie Health to bring immediate, real-time access to high-quality mental healthcare to employees - whenever and wherever they need it."
