Engage’s key achievements of 2023

Expanding the Engage team:

This year we have seen our team grow by 40%! Meet the 2023 recruits who are each bringing their own unique skillset to the team:

  • Penny Pemberton, Head of International Benefits
  • Mike Hesch, Head of UK Employee Benefits
  • Zoe Perera, Senior Employee Benefits Consultant
  • Jess Wright, Senior Employee Benefits Consultant
  • Chloe Young, Employee Benefits Consultant
  • Barbara Martin, Client Support Manager
  • Ciara Boulton, International Client Support Manager
  • Stu Isaac, Employee Benefits Consultant
  • Mel Dixon, Head of Digital Marketing

Launching The International Tech Pool:

Our International team made huge progress in the global start-up and tech scene this year, collaborating with Allianz Care to launch a new international health insurance scheme.

The International Tech Pool is designed for tech companies and start-ups employing remote workers or operating satellite offices around the globe. It helps businesses to protect their workforce under one policy rather than setting up various separate healthcare policies in multiple countries. It’s providing these companies with an exclusive risk pool built up by other tech organisations and start-ups, providing a fairer premium in the process.

Winning at the 2023 Health & Protection Awards:

The Engage team rubbed shoulders with the great and the good of the health insurance industry at the Health & Protection Awards 2023. We won Best International Group Advice Firm, showcasing the effort we have put into our developing global expertise. Stuart Box and Esme Pearson were both nominated for individual awards – Best Health Insurance Adviser and Outstanding Newcomer Award respectively.

Sharing our knowledge:

This year has also been about recognising the importance of our partners and building relationships across the industry. One example has been our involvement with The HR World. We have shared our expertise to the HR community as webinar guests and through written commentary.

We prefer to share our knowledge rather than keep it to ourselves! Expect more of this in 2024.

Helping our clients:

– Medical Aid for Palestinians – 

“Dave (from Engage) was an amazing help from day one. He understood perfectly what we were looking for and directed me and my team in the right direction. We were able to find the EAP provider we needed for our overseas offices. He was always an email away and guided me through the process.”


– CAE Parc Aviation – 

“James has been amazing to work with from tart to finish. From the very first phone call he listened to our requirements and worked tirelessly to find the best options for us and found an excellent insurance package best suited to our needs.”


– Remote – 

“They helped us establish a comprehensive medical plan that covers our employees globally, with competitive and flat rates…

“Engage Health’s expertise and network of brokers have been instrumental in navigating the complex world of global benefits. They match us with brokers who share our values and goals, ensuring that we have the right coverage and support for our employees worldwide.”


– Craig Mason – 

“We used Engage to help our small business find a health policy. Nick was very helpful, supportive and not at all pushy!”


Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

To show the immense appreciation we have towards our employees and all the hard work they put in every day, we needed to give everyone a bit of festive fun! Here are a few photos from our Christmas party at local Brighton favourite Donatello’s:

We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
