Mission & Purpose

The way companies reward their people today is broken - it's a rigid, one-size-fits-all approach that hasn't evolved to meet the demands of the modern workforce. How we work is changing, but compensation - salary, bonus, equity, benefits - has been stuck in the same place for decades. Ben is changing that, starting with employee benefits. We are rebuilding the archaic employee benefits ecosystem through software & payments. Our mission is to make benefits and pay work for everyone, everywhere. ‍ The Ben platform enables employee choice for any existing benefits programme while adding thousands of additional options, all while saving time and money. We’re a technology company with a passion for solving the hard problems people teams and business leaders encounter today more than ever in taking care of their teams. Our two founders set out to combine hands-on experience in building and scaling teams as well as payment services to create a better and more cost-effective way, for any company.
