Employee Benefits - Protect your people and your business

As a business owner you have to provide a Workplace Pension plan. You may even provide further benefits such as Life Assurance cover or childcare vouchers for your employees. But do you believe you get a return on this investment of time and money?

With unemployment figures currently low, employees have more choice over where they work. A differentiator when it comes to recruitment and retention may be the pension plan you offer or the other benefits you have. Following the introduction of Auto Enrolment, employees are generally more aware of pension plans, however what about other ancillary benefits you may offer?

To make the benefits you provide work for you and your employees, promotion is key. Communicating not just that you provide additional benefits but the merits of each benefit helps your employees awareness and appreciation of what’s on offer, as well as showing that you value them.

There are many simple, visible and valuable benefits you may not currently be aware of. For example, if a Private Medical plan is an expense too far, have you considered a cash plan as a cheaper alternative?
