Win a grand travel prize

Scottish Equitable Employee Benefits has just unveiled a slick new look to its employee protection menu product. This product, which is unique in the market, is a flexible employee benefits package specially designed for businesses with 50 to 500 employees.

In a move described as “the axing of financial services&#39 Eldorado”, Scottish Equitable is ditching the Masters family – the “soap opera” of characters which aimed to help employees to identify their employee benefits&#39 needs. Sadly, the plot just didn&#39t capture the imagination and, the Masters family are being replaced by a brand new concept which uses employees in everyday situations to highlight the importance of common-sense protection

To celebrate the sun setting over the financial services Eldorado, Scottish Equitable Employee Benefits is offering MM readers the chance to win £1,000 of travel vouchers.
