Accounts (LSA)

Flexible benefits as diverse as your team

Employee-Built Wellness Programs

Edenred’s Lifestyle Spending Accounts (LSA) are flexible wellness solutions that provide employees with coverage for their choice of wellbeing options.

From fitness to meals, education to entertainment, family to pets and more, Lifestyle Spending Accounts help stressors go down while productivity and wellbeing go up. Employers customize the coverage and set limits. Employees choose which wellness is right for them and pay with subsidies and exclusive discounts.

Lifestyle Benefits let you support each person on your team the best way possible: with options they actually want to use.

Why Offer Lifestyle Benefits?

Celebrate your team’s individuals

Traditional benefits are reactionary and prescriptive. Edenred’s LSA accounts encourage employees to use benefit funds on activities and options that matter most to them.

Give employee morale a boost

Providing choice sends a clear message to the entire team: individual well-being is essential to the health of the organization.

Enhance engagement and productivity

With no hoops to jump through or strict requirements to meet, engagement with this self-directed wellness program is enjoyable — and higher.

Differentiate employer brand

As the employer, you determine which coverage areas align with your brand and choose solutions and limits that set you apart from the competition.
