Flexible and online benefits

We now have four generations in the Irish workforce for the first time. We also have an ever changing dynamic in the workplace with flexible working, dual income families and a growing international workforce. This brings a multiplicity of needs when it comes to developing a relevant, engaging and valued benefits package. To draw a simple conclusion from this, the one-size-fits-all approach to benefits is no longer fit for purpose. Employers are looking to the Flexible and Online Benefits model to help make their benefits more relevant and appealing to their workforce.

As a result, the role of the employer has changed. The continued shift from state and employer funding to a co-funding approach between employer and employee is accelerating the need for more flexibility and choice for employees. Consequently the demand for flexible and online benefits platforms has grown considerably in the Irish market.

The drivers behind the emergence of flexible and online benefits include benefit cost containment, providing access for employees to benefits information in one hub or portal, offering more choice and flexibility and having a robust technology and administration platform behind this to support the effective outsourcing of benefits administration.

Our proprietary benefits technology underpins our solutions. You and your employees will benefit from a single, market leading portal that delivers a unique, user-friendly employee experience that drives awareness, understanding and appreciation of their benefits and reward.
