Looking after a small team

A small business can be like a family. So when key staff get sick or new legislation gets introduced, it can put the pressure on.

  • 97% of Kiwi enterprises have fewer than 20 employees1
  • 24% of Southern Cross’ health insurance work scheme employ fewer than 16 FTEs

How we can help

If you have five or more full time employees, talk to us about a Southern Cross work scheme. If your team isn’t quite that big yet, there are still plenty of ways we can help.

  • Workplace wellness

    Workplace wellness

    Our wellness programme is only available to workplaces with five or more people.

    Small businesses can still explore many other ideas to create a healthier team and workplace, such as subsidised gym memberships, walking meetings, fruit boxes and more.

  • Support your team with health insurance

    Support your team with health insurance

    If you’re thinking that you would like to support your staff with health insurance, it’s easy to organise. Simply ask your team to join us as individual members. They can choose from our full range of cover and pay their own premiums. You can then decide to reinburse these premiums in part or full. Just talk to your accountant first about whether there are any tax implications.
