Personalizing Mass Outreach Down to Each Person

Imagine you have an important piece of news you want to deliver to an employee, or a specific group of employees—anything from announcing a local onsite event, to sharing a new benefit, to recognizing a work anniversary.

Why Love? The Story Behind the New Evive

In 2007, Peter Saravis and Prashant Srivastava set out to answer a question: why can’t healthcare be as accessible, clear, and friendly as everything else consumers use? Together, the two friends joined forces to create Evive, an ambitious startup that would go on to make healthcare more understandable and relevant to employees. Now, 10 years […]

Is Your Benefits Ecosystem Interconnected?
