WORKLIFE BY OPENMONEY EXPANDS TEAM WITH TWO KEY HIRES

WorkLife, the digital employee benefits service by OpenMoney, has announced the expansion of its team with two new hires. Dave Lambert has been appointed Marketing Strategy Consultant, while Leah Heath joins as Financial Wellbeing Support Adviser.

Lambert, who has over 30 years’ experience of sales across B2B and B2C companies and extensive knowledge of the business software market, will oversee the firm’s sales strategy. He previously worked at HR services provider, Citation Professional Solutions, as Sales Director, responsible for developing relationships with sector partners.

Heath joins from financial advice firm Wealth Wizards, where she worked as a Financial Wellbeing Specialist. As Financial Wellbeing Support Adviser, Heath will help deliver financial wellbeing education into workplaces, as well as being instrumental in developing WorkLife’s business proposition.

Dave Lambert said: “WorkLife has a fantastic ethos. I am excited to be joining a business with a mission to support small businesses in areas where they are usually overlooked.”

Leah Heath commented: “I am delighted to be joining the team at WorkLife. There has been a profound change in the way people work, and employee and financial wellbeing remains paramount in these uncertain times.”

Rob Marshall, Managing Director of WorkLife, said: “It is an exciting time to join WorkLife as we look forward to the next year. Demand for employee benefits continues to increase and the knowledge and expertise Dave and Leah have will play an important part in the future of WorkLife.

“Our ambition of empowering all SMEs to support the financial wellbeing of their employees is core to the work we do. We are pleased to welcome such talented individuals to help us achieve our ongoing mission.”

The new hires follow the appointment of a number of staff earlier this year as WorkLife by OpenMoney augments its development strategy and corporate expansion plans. Since its launch in June this year, WorkLife has been providing businesses with a range of employee benefits usually only found in big companies, the core ones being free financial advice for employees, free mental health support and discounts on shopping, eating out and health and fitness.

Firms and employees can access WorkLife through a simple digital platform, which is free to all small businesses for the rest of 2020 to help those firms hit hardest by the coronavirus crisis.
