the lack of benefits you once took for granted?
Did private medical insurance, for example,
suddenly become cost prohibitive?
Salary sacrifice benefits, such as childcare
vouchers, cycle to work schemes and medical
insurance, are now commonplace, and staff
either expect them as part of their job or
don't want to give them up. And with the
proliferation of employee discounts that
bring instant savings on big-name brands,
the employee benefits package has evolved
from a nice-to-have to a must-have.
The good news is, giving up your job in a
corporate to start out on your own, or to join

a smaller business, no longer means having to
give up all the perks. Employee benefits schemes
- once the preserve of big business and deep
pockets - are now affordable for any company,
large or small. Access to an intuitive, online
platform with a huge range of benefits is now
within financial reach, with schemes starting
from a few pounds per employee per month.
The latest benefits platforms allow you
to browse and select the benefits you wish
to offer, configure and brand your portal, and
launch the scheme in no time at all. You are
closer to your employees and know what
interests them most, so you can tailor your
scheme and give them a range of low-cost
benefits they'll actually want and use. You can
also give them access to the buying power of
larger organisations, whether that's in the form
of high-street discounts, supermarket offers,
gym memberships, family-friendly days out or
holidays in the sun.
Beyond staff benefits, you can also add
complementary services to the platform, such as
a company intranet and reward and recognition,
giving you more scope to introduce low-cost
engagement initiatives. An intuitive company
intranet is a great engagement tool for quickly
and securely sharing corporate updates,
initiatives and events that reinforce your culture
and keep staff informed.
Being smaller than the big guys and offering
more than your nearest competitor are what
make you different. So why not attract potential
employees more easily and keep the hardworking staff you've already invested in with
benefits and discounts they haven't expected to
receive... until now.
