Welcome To Engage Health Group

The world of work is evolving fast. We’re here to ensure you deliver the very best workplace benefits and health plans, whether you’re a start-up, SME or large international company.


Engage Health Group was founded in 2016 by Nick Hale CII with a vision to provide a superior level of service and expertise to businesses seeking employee benefits. 

Nick observed that many UK companies were being treated in a transactional way. He determined to change that by launching Engage as a full-service brokerage dedicated to developing long-term relationships with clients, rather than the fast-churn business model which he saw prevalent in the industry. 

Ian Abbott, formerly of Bupa Global, joined as International Director in 2018, launching the company’s international benefits division. Its introduction meant that corporate customers and SMEs with global employees could now source expert advice and tailored solutions when it came to health insurance, life insurance and other employee benefits policies.

From a bootstrap start-up operating from a spare bedroom, Engage Health Group today employs a team of 25 staff – and fast-growing – at its headquarters in central Brighton.

How we work

“Our objective has always been to offer world class advice to our customers and make the world of employee benefits as straightforward as possible for them.”

Engage advises on every aspect of sourcing, implementing and managing benefit schemes here in the UK and all around the world. 

We know how difficult it can be for businesses to launch and manage a benefits package: 

It’s not just about the policies and services that you provide to your teams. 

It’s not just about negotiating the best price points and terms. 

It’s not just about how you make them accessible to your teams. 

It’s about all the above and more. 

As a trusted partner to hundreds of businesses, we alleviate HR’s workload and guide them through the finer details of how policies work and help them attain the most effective benefits at the most competitive price.

Our support continues long after benefits have been implemented. We help introduce new policies to your teams, assist with claims, answer any further policy-related queries, and review your scheme when it’s up for renewal.

Whether you’re an ambitious start-up or an established global company, we provide clarity and maximise your return on investment now and in the future.

Award-winning support

“We had worked directly with our insurer for over five years. We appointed Engage Health Group to our plan and through their negotiation, we saved £9,000 on our annual premium without having to change insurers.”

The verdict of our clients is also supported by the great and the good in the health and protection industry. At the UK Health & Protection Awards 2023 we won Best International Group Advice Firm following on from 2022’s ‘Best Group Healthcare Advice Firm’ and high commendation for ‘Best International Corporate Client Advice Firm’.

The Engage team consists of experienced ex-industry insiders from some of the biggest insurers, including the likes of Bupa Global, Aetna and Vitality UK. But we also have some of the brightest young talent in the industry.

Many advisors who work independently, or who represent one specific insurer, do not carry industry qualifications, working more as a sales channel rather than a specialist consultancy.

Engage Health Group sets itself apart by ensuring every employee has completed adequate professional qualifications via The Chartered Insurance Institute. This means our clients get access to the most knowledgeable advice available.

Together we have the same goal: to provide great outcomes for the businesses we work for and the staff they employ.

Beyond transactions

“Engage have been able to transform our employee benefits programme into one that is both appealing to our employees and cost effective for our business.”

We believe that employee benefits are much more than a box-ticking exercise. A carefully considered and well-executed strategy can have a huge impact on an individual’s health and wellbeing. In turn, this can drive staff recruitment and retention, and ensure that people are happy, healthy and ready to give their best.  

That’s why our client relationships are never just a transaction and advice is never given on a whim. 

We also like to put our expertise to good use in the wider community. That’s why we launched the Engage Charity Health Fund. The fund provides free healthcare to the employees of selected small charities and ensures they can access treatment for everyday healthcare costs.

Current recipients of the fund include: Rockinghorse Children’s Charity, The Starr Trust, Sussex Cancer Fund and Grassroots Suicide Prevention.

The Engage Way

One-to-one consultation:

Whether you’re launching a scheme for the first time or seeking a review of your current strategy and policies, we’re here to answer all your questions and provide the best solutions.

Market-wide quotes:

Our team will source policies and price points from across the market – usually superior to what you can find publicly available. We will also explain the crucial policy points in straight-forward language.

Scheme implementation:

We will advise on the best way of making benefits available to your teams, including guidance on benefits platforms and apps. We can also help onboard your teams onto your new scheme via in-office or virtual presentations.

UK and global:

Our expertise go beyond the UK. Our international team advise on the best way to support teams and individuals in different parts of the world too. Global benefits can involve significant investment; we make sure it’s wisely spent.

Claims assistance:

We’re here to help should you ever encounter issues when making a claim on a policy. We help clear up any confusion and, if we believe you’ve been wrongly refused a claim, we will argue your case.

No contracts, no fees:

We won’t tie you into any contracts or charge you for our advice. In essence, we take a finder’s fee from the providers we place you with. Be assured: we do not have “preferred partnership” arrangements - we always seek out the best policies from across all available providers.
