League Inc. gives small and medium-sized businesses a digital alternative to traditional health benefits programsTORONTO, Nov. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - For many small and medium-sized businesses, retaining employees and building loyalty are critical to achieving their business goals. One way to create an attractive workplace is by offering coverage for health care expenses, which is why RBC has collaborated with League Inc. (League) to provide its clients with a new option for managing their employees' health care expenses. League provides a digital alternative to traditional health benefits, allowing employers to deliver a-la-carte, customizable personal health and wellness spending accounts to their employees. "At RBC, we're focused on providing our business clients with new ways to grow their businesses and thrive for the long-term," says Neil McLaughlin, executive vice-president, business financial service, RBC. "We know that retaining employees and building loyalty is one of our business clients' top concerns. As part of their relationship with RBC, our business clients will now have access to a new and cost effective way to retain their talent and grow their business through League." RBC's relationship with League is unique amongst major banks in Canada — the collaboration launched in October. "We wanted to work with an organization that complements our goal to empower people to live healthier, happier lives and RBC was an obvious choice," says Michael Serbinis, founder and CEO of League. "RBC shares our vision for what we can accomplish with this platform and it's clear they are committed to bringing innovative solutions to their clients. We are pleased to be working together to bring the best in health and wellness to small and medium-sized businesses across Canada." Through the League app, employees can access a network of healthcare professionals and use their health and wellness spending account on services that suit their individual needs. The platform is mobile, cashless and digital, eliminating the need for members to fill out paperwork. For RBC's healthcare professional clients, this platform can also provide them with a new channel to acquire customers — healthcare professionals can include their business in the marketplace, accept bookings, enjoy seamless payment, and receive ratings and reviews via the app.
