Espresa's Wellbeing + Fitness Allowance Model

Empowering and engaging people.

People are the heart and soul of all companies. Attracting and retaining top talent is front and center for HR and employee benefits teams who are tasked with creating the kind of workplace culture that people flock to. Especially in the age of remote work.

Give employees freedom with Lifestyle Spending Accounts (LSA), reimbursements, and allowances that are personal to their needs. Offering LSAs, employee reimbursements, and allowances is how smart companies engage and delight employees, while positively impacting business goals and outcomes. Encouraging wellbeing and freedom of choice, Espresa’s global employee benefits platform enables employees to apply those pre-tax dollars towards what they love. Plus, Espresa is the world’s first and only platform that delivers Lifestyle Spending Accounts and reimbursements seamlessly, in over 109 languages, and globally in any currency.

Espresa Reimbursements + Allowances

Eligible expenses for LSAs, reimbursements, and allowances

  • Health and wellbeing – fitness and mindfulness classes (including on-demand virtual), gym memberships, fitness equipment, and fitness wearables
  • Work from home support – ergonomics such as standing desks and treadmill desks for home office
  • Childcare, fertility, reproductive health, and adoption support
  • Financial wellbeing services
  • Commuter benefits
  • Continued education and tuition reimbursements

Go beyond fitness. Amplify your remote or physical workplace culture by expanding employee reimbursements and allowances for outdoor activity, volunteering, biking, walking to work, and more. With flexible design options, HR now has complete transparency with finance teams, while having the autonomy to not be a one-size-fits-all program.

“Looking for a (virtual) yoga retreat this weekend or a hardcore spin class? There’s an allowance for that.”

Espresa’s global employee benefits platform empowers HR with unlimited control over employee incentives. Create unlimited custom allowance plans and select by country, currency, time zone, location, and employee type. Plus, we’ll white label the platform for your own uniquely branded experience.
