After a year and a bit since Kota's beta launch to our first customers, we are thrilled to extend our availability to cover your team in the UK.

We are excited to announce that Kota now offers Group Health Insurance with Vitality, which is delightfully easy to set up and manage—all within Kota, all within minutes.

By way of reminder, for those of you new around here, we believe the traditional way of covering your employees is outdated – it’s fragmented, clunky, and employees hate it. We’re building a new era of core benefits – one that’s global, affordable and delightfully easy to use for HR & Finance teams and their employees. We’ve partnered with the world's leading providers, like Smart Pension, Allianz, Canada Life and now Vitality, to provide this experience to a whole new generation of workers.

At Kota, switching to a new country requires becoming regulated to sell insurance in that market and partnering and integrating with our preferred provider on the ground so that our customers can enjoy an end-to-end experience of setting up and managing their benefits within our platform. Launching in the UK took us on a journey of receiving FCA authorisation and building a relationship with our provider of choice, Vitality Insurance. Working with Vitality has been a joy – from their highly competitive plans to their customer experience and rewards that are setting a new standard in the market and their long-term vision, which is very much aligned with ours – to serve a modern workforce by enhancing and protecting their lives.

This one-stop shop for local health insurance and retirement benefits across the UK and Ireland is unique—it’s the first of its kind. It will allow your team to replace the fragmented process of cross-market benefits management, stop worrying about reconciliation, and engage your team more with their benefits.

Speaking on the partnership, Liam Kennedy, from Vitality, said, “We’re pleased to be partnering with Kota, making it easier for businesses who have the platform to access and update their Vitality health insurance. Through our insurance, organisations can have access to a wide range of health and wellbeing support to enable them to prioritise and positively impact employee health and the productivity of their workforce, alongside providing access to healthcare when they need it”
