I’ve often been asked the question ‘ what are the best benefits to offer to staff members?’, and the truth is I couldn’t tell you as it varies so much from business to business and from staff member to staff member. What I can tell you is the flexible employee benefits are making waves across all industries and they are becoming more and more prevalent in keeping staff members happy, and can sometimes even be the difference between an employee taking a job offer with your organisation or taking one elsewhere.
Flexible employee benefits are formalised systems that allow an employee to vary their pay and/or benefits package to meet their own personal requirements. One thing to make clear here is that they are NOT the same as voluntary employee benefits where the employee would have to pay for the extra benefits.
If you are interested in discussing the possibility of introducing flexible employee benefits into your organisation then take a look at Fair Care. Fair Care can be found at https://www.faircare.co.uk and you will find a whole host of options available relating to flexible employee benefits at different levels.
On their website, you will see an option that offers different packages of benefits across different platforms including FlexGenius, Benefit Select, Perkpal. These packages offer different levels of benefits but are all worth checking out. Some companies may want to offer more than others which is fine, but it just means that you would select a different level of package.
If you have any questions or queries, the Fair Care team will be on hand to assist you, but I implore you to have a read through their website as it will present you will a whole host of information and key stats relating to flexible employee benefits and how they can enhance the happiness of your workforce. In an ever-changing world, flexible employee benefits are the way forward.
Remember, if you want the best staff you need to make them the best offer. Flexible Employee Benefits are a great tool and can include, but are not limited to:
- Childcare Vouchers
- Bicycle Loans / Cycle to Work Schemes
- Health Schemes
- Health Screening
- Dental Insurance
- Private Medical Insurance
- Gym Memberships
- Discounts of local retailers / national retailers
- Many more.
So, in terms of what the best benefits to give your employees are, it’s all subjective but there are lots of options out there that should cover your needs and those of your staff, so happy hunting!
