If you thought that mindfulness is nothing but some ‘touchy-feely’ stuff that has no value in the working environment, you may be surprised to find that some of the world’s largest employers have looked at its benefits.
Providing a range of benefits that your employees want is one thing. Making sure that doing so is quick and easy – now and in the future – can be another thing entirely.
Here’s how Benni’s innovative digital benefit platform can make offering more benefits to more people simple – from day one.
As the lockdown measures begin to be lifted, it’s important to consider how you can support employees making the transition back into work. You may be dealing with employees who have been furloughed for weeks, those who have been working from home or a mixture of both.
As we begin to emerge from the coronavirus pandemic, the workplace is going to look somewhat different in both the short and long term.
We’re likely to be looking at social distancing measures in our offices and factories, meetings will have to change, even eating habits. Meanwhile, many organisations will no doubt continue with many of the new ways of flexible working they’ve embraced and found to be successful.
What isn’t going to change is the fact that people of all ages will still be working together. People are already working to a greater age than before as the state pension age continues to rise. And with pension funds taking a hit during the pandemic, it’s possible that people may find themselves working longer than they planned or expected.
But people of different ages and different stages in their lives have different priorities, so what should an employee benefits package look like for a multi-generational workforce?
In our War for Talent report, we asked 2,000 employees of all ages about the benefits they received at work.

Even in 2020, we can still be reluctant to admit we’re struggling with our mental health to family, employers or colleagues. This may because of the stigma that can still surround it, or from a fear of seeming weak or unable to do our jobs.
There’s more focus than ever on the benefits of pedal power. Better physical and mental health, savings on transport or fuel costs, all while being kind to the environment. But adding a Cycle to Work scheme as an employee benefit does more than help your people and the planet. It could bring business benefits too.
Even before the coronavirus pandemic turned the world’s working practices upside down, a number of UK employers were struggling to make their employee benefits match the expectations and needs of their people.
A caring employer always wants to do their best to help ensure the mental health and wellbeing of their people. But unprecedented times bring unprecedented challenges. Furloughed employees in particular may face a number of additional pressures. So how do businesses look after people who may be unable to work through no fault of their own?
In these challenging times we’d like to help by enabling employers with more than 25 employees to provide instant access to a range of discounts and offers that staff can use to help with everyday spending. These can be accessed via both a web portal and a mobile app which come from BenefitHub, a third-party provider of retail benefits and discounts.
