Employee Benefits Management @ Cornerstone Resources HR

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.

What employee benefits are available?

A wide range of employee benefits are available in the UK. Below is a list of some of the options open to you but it is by no means exhaustive.

  • Childcare vouchers (until October 2018 only)
  • Cycle to work
  • Pensions
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Health Cash Plans
  • Voluntary Benefits

So if any of the options listed above are of interest you, contact us by clicking the below button or call 07494 161169 or 07908 875146 and we can help provide your employees with a benefits package that meets their needs!

Does performance related pay work?

Does performance related pay work? I’m currently planning the salary review process for a client. The general principle is that we reward for performance. It’s something I’ve heard expressed many times before and on one level it makes sense.  Why not give more to your best performers? The problem is that salary budgets have been

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
