Social innovation: Wisecom becomes the first call centre to provide its employees with Wakam micro-insurance solution
6 September 2021
The role of protection and social buffer that has been played by companies during the last 18 months of the Covid crisis is approved by nearly three-quarters of the employees.
To meet these societal aspirations, Wakam, which has become a mission-driven company, has created, with the associations Epic and Crésus, a range of micro-insurance solutions at cost price and without profit margin, to provide protection to employees not subject to income tax.
Wisecom, which stands out from the call center ecosystem by integrating a CSR and QWL approach as a fundamental part of its business model, has once again answered the call by joining forces with Wakam to become the first employer to finance the protection of its employees’ living expenses.
Reversing the pyramid of benefits by supporting the most vulnerable
This insurance solution supported by Wisecom for the benefit of its employees is dedicated to those who are not subject to income tax. The insurance covers basic needs in three areas: work, home protection and mobility. It guarantees almost immediate and fixed compensation for the employee with simple products written in clear languages, such as, for example, the payment of a sum of up to €2,000 in case of mechanical breakdowns on the vehicle.
By choosing to supplement its employees’ salaries with insurance to help manage life’s hard knocks, Wisecom offers its employees an innovative protection shield.
This solidarity perk reinforces the differentiation of Wisecom, a committed employer brand already recognized as such thanks to the many initiatives implemented since 2005.
Wakam distributes this insurance offer to all types of companies, from large groups with several thousand employees to the smallest SMEs and ETIs wishing to engage in a societal innovation approach involving their employees. With an affordable cost determined according to a monthly budget per employee and fully paid by the company, this perk reverses the traditional pyramid of benefits by being reserved for employees who are not subject to income tax and who are sometimes further away from more expensive complete insurance solutions.
In accordance with its mission commitments, and to ensure maximum impact, the offer is designed at cost and without profit margins for Wakam.
Our commitment to CSR, in addition to being a strong conviction, has logically appeared as an essential lever of development for all stakeholders of the company, so we are very excited to launch this innovative and concrete insurance offer against hard blows with Wakam, which completes our panel of actionsPaolo Fabiani, founder of Wisecom
