We have a long-standing relationship with an employer that purchased another company with a different benefit structure. This left our client with the challenge of two very different benefit structures, and two very different levels of engagement in the benefits too. The brief was to harmonise these arrangements, reduce administration and improve engagement across the combined business.
The combined business employs around 300 employees in total, across two main locations, with a number of people working remotely.
Through our existing relationship, engagement with (and understanding of) benefits was already high in the existing company, but in the purchased business, it was clear that many people did not even know what was in place for them – let alone how to utilise the benefits.
