Flexible Benefits have increasingly become more popular as employers wish to meet the diverse needs of different employees. A 45 year-old female with 3 children may place Life Coverage benefits on higher priority. In comparison, a 25 year-old female may value Wellness Benefits such as gym membership more.
Benefits can be customised to meet this diversity through Flexible Benefits Programmes. Employees are given flex dollars and a basket of benefits which gives them the freedom and choice to spend on what matters to them. All this is managed through our Flexible Benefit Portal.
With rising importance of well-care and over sick-care, many companies today allocate a Wellness Budget focused on physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of the employee. The health evidence is clear that a healthier and happier workforce is a more productive workforce. We can organise wellness programmes that meet with client’s objectives, ranging from Health & Nutrition Talks to Bootcamps etc.
