Why auditing your employee benefit schemes is vital

With continuing legislative changes dominating an already evolving market, regularly auditing your employee benefits schemes has never been more important.

How to audit your employee benefit schemes

As such, we’ve developed our latest guide, How to audit your employee benefit schemes, in order to answer your key questions and concerns in the area of protection, health and wellbeing.

Aimed at HR professionals, we examine three main areas of a company’s benefit package:

  • Group income protection
  • Group life assurance
  • Private medical insurance

We’ll offer you advice and guidance in order to establish whether your current package is still appropriate and delivering value for money and what your next steps should be.

The knock-on effect of auto-enrolment on employee benefits schemes is inevitable, and as many of you will be reaching your annual benefit renewal window, a review of current structures is absolutely essential.

Our guide will review and address this to ensure you are getting the best out of your insured benefits and that it remains relevant for your workforce and business as a whole.

Auto-enrolment: pay attention or pay the price

By Simon Fletcher

As a chief executive officer of a business in the financial services sector, I have been dealing with the introduction of auto-enrolment for our clients for some time, but I can also speak from an employer’s point of view, having to go through the process ourselves.
