Employee benefits offers a way to motivate employees and contribute towards improving employee well-being and enhancing engagement. However, there are a number of factors to consider when introducing a benefit or benefits package to ensure that’s valued by employees, while also supporting HR practices and aligning it with wider business goals. 

The world of work has shifted from a culture of flat paternalistic benefits to today’s more personalised and individual  approach to employee benefits and reward. As the generations in each  workplace widen it is important to make sure that your benefit structures remain relevant.

This training session will explore the variety of  benefits employers can offer, and what to consider when implementing or reviewing employee benefits as part of your reward strategy.
