What is Reward and why do I need it?
Are employees coming to you claiming that they are underpaid? Are you in a position to respond with any sense of authority? If not, engage Cornerstone Resources and we can guide you as to the market value of your employee’s roles. We can also help you with the rest of your employee’s compensation package.
Using our significant knowledge of the UK employee benefits industry, we can help you access a range of employee benefits that will not only deliver value to your employees but will help you recruit and retain the skills you require to keep your business healthy.
Why provide employee benefits?
They are a great way to increase engagement with your employees. Not everyone wants a ‘one size fits all’ package and with up to four generations in the workforce, there are often very different wants and needs within the same office!
Will this cost a lot?
The best thing of all is that many of them are cost neutral for your organisation. So you can provide your employees with a choice of how they want their overall package to look like without it costing the earth. Some options can be achieved via salary sacrifice which also delivers savings on National Insurance contributions and income tax.

Intensive lobbying from interested parties has failed to change the Government’s mind on removing childcare vouchers. From 4th October 2018, the current childcare voucher scheme will be closed to new entrants and the only option on the table (for those who are eligible) is tax free childcare. We find it disappointing that the Government has
