Reward and Benefits
Reward and Benefits
Providing updates on all of the elements that make up an employee's total reward - how that is benchmarked, structured, designed and delivered.
This page is concerned with all of the elements that make up an employee's overall reward package - how that is benchmarked, structured, designed and delivered.
We focus not only on the regulatory environment in the UK - as it impacts the tax/NIC efficiency of certain benefits, e.g. cash and share based incentive schemes, pensions, company cars, holiday, mileage allowances, etc. - but also on providing insight around governance and regulation affecting decisions around reward. We also consider issues such as Total Reward and Flexible Benefits as ways of constructing and communicating reward to employees.
