PoloWorks has launched a new flexible benefits platform for its workforce.
The company, which provides support services to the insurance market, introduced a solution from Zest to help with its benefits administration that will integrate with its existing technology. It aims to offer staff easier and more personalised access to their benefits packages.
Currently in the onboarding phase, the platform is set to be rolled out to employees from November. It will enable staff to choose their preferred benefits while providing employers with feedback and data on which options are most valued by the workforce.
According the business, which employs 350 people in its London and Cheltenham, UK offices, the move will ensure both the organisation and employees get the most from the provisions on offer.
Harriet Grant, HR manager at PoloWorks, said: “For us, Zest is about consolidating our core benefits onto one platform. Colleagues can access information about everything on offer, as well as self-serve additional salary sacrifice options such as additional pension contributions, family private medical insurance, holiday purchase and cycle to work and instantly see how this will impact their take home pay. This will integrate directly with our ADP payroll removing much of the back-office administration load our HR and finance team currently deal with.”
According to Zest, the platform will enhance value for money and boost the company’s competitiveness when attracting new talent as it looks to increase hires in the second half of the year.
CEO Matt Russell added: “An effective employee benefits package will empower PoloWorks to provide accessible and personalised benefits that increase engagement and offer enhanced value and support for employees.
“In the current challenging financial landscape, it is essential that employers invest in benefits package to boost total renumeration in order to attract and retain talent. Zest’s platform will ensure that both employer and employees can enhance value for money from workplace benefits.”
