2,500 female colleagues at Kier will benefit from personalised women’s health support, as the Group expands its service offering with the digital health app, Peppy.
Kier offers health and well-being support from Peppy to all its employees. In July 2022, the service launched with offerings for men’s health, fertility, baby and menopause; it has now enhanced its support by offering access to Peppy’s Women’s Health service to provide further support to women at Kier.
This latest initiative will enhance the services provided to female employees at Kier, who will now benefit from personalised and holistic physical and mental health support, delivered by Peppy’s dedicated experts.
Providing guidance and help
Peppy’s Women’s Health service connects Kier’s people to expert women’s health nurses, offering practical guidance and emotional support that is easy to access, personalised and confidential.
The service is for women, those who identify as female, were assigned female at birth, have female biological and physiological anatomy, or who have an interest in female health conditions and wellbeing.
Peppy’s Women’s Health service covers: the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as fibroids, endometriosis, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS); gynaecological health; body image issues; miscarriage and baby loss; depression, anxiety and stress; contraception; nutrition and exercise; and optimising sleep. It also includes access to health courses and regular educational events.
Caroline Forsyth, group rewards director, Kier, says:
Our introduction of Peppy in the summer proved hugely successful, offering real and tangible health and wellbeing support to all our employees. We added Women’s Health as soon as Peppy made it available, ensuring we now have services specifically for women’s health. Life has its challenges, often unexpected and, at Kier, we put our people first. Peppy supports them when they need it most.
Peppy supports a number of our key people pillars, including wellbeing, and talent attraction and retention. It delivers high-quality, highly accessible health support across and including race and ethnicity, sex and gender equality, LGBTQ+, female and family friendly, and generational diversity.

Francesca Steyn, director of fertility and women’s health, Peppy, says:
We are delighted that Kier has been so pleased with the Peppy service, that they have decided to add Women’s Health to their support offering. With Fertility, Baby, Menopause and Men’s Health already covered by the services they implemented from Peppy in the summer, it is very forward-thinking to have added Women’s Health in addition to this. Kier is offering a really comprehensive health and wellbeing support programme and one which is highly valued by its people.
