More than insurance, Alan is a one-stop health partner.
Our mission is to empower everyone to live a longer, healthier life.
Our objective is to become the market leader in healthcare, and one of the biggest and most member-centric companies in the world.
At Alan we help members take care of their physical health and mental well-being on a daily basis by putting an emphasis on prevention. We support members via our virtual clinic, with a simple and responsive health insurance and innovative and proactive services, all accessible directly from their pocket.
Alan is the best HR investment any company can make. Employees, now more than ever, hold employers accountable for taking care of their health and wellbeing, and those that do are rewarded with a significantly more engaged and loyal workforce.
Hear from our CEO & Co-Founder, Jean Charles Samuelian-Werve as he explains Alan's vital mission to help people live a longer and healthier life
How it all began
In 2016 Jean-Charles Samuelian and Charles Gorintin set out to revolutionise the healthcare industry. They identified a huge problem to solve: Healthcare is expensive, unadapted to individual needs, reactive rather than predictive or preventive, complex and hard to navigate, while burning-out doctors. So, they created Alan, which started out as the first fully digital health insurance and has now evolved into so much more!
As of today, Alan operates in 3 countries (🇫🇷, 🇧🇪, 🇪🇸) and covers more than 400,000 members, representing over €250m+ of annualized revenue. In 2022 we raised a further €183m in a series E funding round bringing the company’s total valuation to €2.7bn. The team is 500+ people and growing.
How we work
Reaching our mission requires us to attract and groom the best talent who believe in our mission and want to achieve excellence.
We put our members first, our team second, our shareholders third.
We empower everyone to make courageous decisions and to work asynchronously.
We take all our decisions in writing and adopt a direct and honest style of communication.
Personal & Team Growth
We are self-improving whilst helping others grow. We’re no ego-doers and we all edit the company.
We shoot for the moon and work backwards. We push for excellence by focusing on uncomfortable A+ problems.
Is Alan for me?
We continue to build a culture where Alaners feel a strong sense of belonging, by believing in our mission, aligning on how we achieve it and through meaningful relationships.
A strong and mission-aligned culture will not please everybody, that is why we are explicit on why it can be amazing for you (and when it is not).
What makes an Alaner?
Pioneers innovating to improve people's lives : Alaners are devoted to our mission. Our members’ needs are at the heart of everything, as we fearlessly scale an industry-disrupting business towards an expansive and profitable future. We constantly learn along the journey and share discoveries across the business and the wider industry for the benefit of everyone. As such we have created Healthy Business, the leading community for business & HR executives trailblazing the Future of Work in Europe.
What kind of environment is it?
A Healthy Place to Thrive : We have created a work environment enabling Alaners to thrive by being true to themselves. What you get is what you see: our values and leadership principles are omnipresent in our decisions making and interactions. Our culture encourages humility and radical transparency so help each other grow to perform at their best to achieve our mission. It’s a place where Alaners feel fairly rewarded, whatever their background, with extra benefits and perks, and all the tools they need to achieve work/life harmony.
How do we work?
Accountability fostered through Flexibility & Trust : Alaners at all levels are empowered to drive high impact decisions with speed, unrestricted by unnecessary hierarchy. We give Alaners the flexibility and trust to build and edit the company and reward them fairly by growth opportunities and equity. Career progression is a top priority, providing Alaners with varied, ambitious and non-traditional career paths they could not have outside Alan.
What we are not
In this video our Senior Alaners help you understand why Alan can be amazing for you and when it is not:
We don’t pretend to suit everyone and as radical transparency is one of our core values, we want to be open about what we are not, to help you decide if Alan is a place for you.
Alan is not always a comfortable place, high performing culture can be demanding as we expect people to push for excellence.
Alan is not a place where you will get it right every time, Alaners are comfortable with sometimes failing and learning from the experience.
Alan is not somewhere you can rinse and repeat: rather than rely on prior knowledge, we prefer Alaners to try to break problems down to first principles and try an even more innovative approach.
Alan is not always an easy ride: Transparency can take you out of your comfort zone and receiving feedback can sometimes feel uneasy.
Alan is not a place where you’re spoon-fed: Being autonomous and taking ownership by setting your own objectives takes a high level of self-sufficiency.
