Our growth story so far and why securing Series B funding really matters

When we launched Peppy in 2018, I don’t think any of us could quite have anticipated how incredible the next few years would be. Peppy has seen some huge milestones reached, with the latest being news of our series B funding. This funding allows us to accelerate our expansion into the US, and continue to grow in the UK and elsewhere, bringing personalised care and 121 support from real human health experts, to even more people.

When we first introduced Peppy in the UK, menopause support as an employee benefit was a world-first. Soon there was a tidal wave of interest in this area and the potential impact of menopause on every single woman in this country began to become recognised, not to mention the knock-on effect for other people in their lives, on organisations and society as a whole.

And now Peppy is the world leader in menopause and men’s health benefits, as well as pioneering support for fertility, pregnancy and early parenthood, working with over 250 world leading enterprises. We serve employees in organisations as wide ranging as investment banks, top tier law firms, pharmaceutical companies, major global media, construction and infrastructure firms and retailers. 

This journey is only just beginning in the US. The awareness of menopause in the USA is starting to grow, but it can still often be a taboo topic. We’re honoured to know that Peppy will be part of a US healthcare movement that brings gender specific support issues like menopause to the forefront – just as we have done in the UK.

The future is looking very exciting for Peppy and we know there’s so much more we can do.

We’ve been honoured to have the enthusiastic support and confidence of the many investors, partners, clients, members and the team, who have doubled down on their support year on year and made Peppy what it is today.

Expanding inclusion: Addressing the overlooked stories of women left behind

Achieving true inclusion isn’t about grand gestures; it’s about the little moments and the individual stories. It's listening to "THAT Woman" – you know, the one who’s brilliant but maybe a bit misunderstood or overlooked at work. We should be giving her the mic and making sure we're all ears.

Navigating silent grief: How employers can support employees through baby loss

Every year, an unsettling statistic resounds across the UK – at least 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. This striking number implies a significant portion of your workforce has, or will, experience this traumatic event. Our new research, conducted by Censuswide in partnership with the British Infertility Counselling Association and Fertility Matters At Work, with over 1000 employees, delves deep into the subject, bringing to light the scale of the issue as we explore in this article. This is Baby Loss Awareness Week, there's no better time for employers to address and provide the needed support for this heart-wrenching loss.


How to help new parents return to work after parental leave

The long road to PCOS diagnosis

Over 1 million people in the UK are living with undiagnosed polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). But is this just another period problem for women to learn to live with, or is the long and complex road to diagnosis something employers should be doing something about?

Men matter: Addressing the impact of male fertility on business

From our school days, we're taught about the 'birds and the bees' with an unmistakable emphasis on female fertility, when in fact male-factor infertility makes up around 50% of all cases. In our modern age, it's astounding how this outdated narrative continues to dominate not just societal discourse, but also workplace health policies across the globe. It's time we rebalanced this equation. Men's fertility is an integral part of the reproductive story and needs equal attention and support.


Miscarriage in the workplace – the do’s and don’ts

Experiencing a miscarriage is massively traumatic, both physically and emotionally, with long-term feelings of grief and loss. Whether you’re a close friend, family member, colleague or line manager, this is a difficult issue to tackle. But it needs to be tackled – with sensitivity.
