Benefit strategy

We have pioneered the use of data analytics as a dynamic approach to developing employee benefits strategies.

We focus on utilising consumer analytics to better understand your employees and how they interact with benefits. With over 450,000 individual employees making 10 million benefit decisions a year on our platform, Orbit, we are in a unique position to understand just how employees act when given choice in their employee benefits.

Our approach

Our Optimise service provides a data-led evidence-proven strategic employee benefits and reward programme. The service encompasses employee demographic analytics, effective competitive benchmarking, measuring return on investment and good governance.

We focus on providing ongoing strategic governance – we analyse a client’s population to understand their employees' benefits behaviours to enable them to make recommendations and decisions about their benefits provisions in relation to their corporate objectives.

65% of employees say they would expect their employer to provide guidance on the employee benefits they offer and how appropriate each benefit might be to them and their family.

68% of employees say they are more likely to take a job if their future employer offers a good employee benefits package.

Supporting clients

Working with our experienced team of employee benefits consultants will help you to develop a reward and benefits package that perfectly corresponds with your specific organisational goals and your employees’ motivations.

We will perform an audit of your existing benefits package and analyse the risks involved. We will develop a long-term, detailed plan for delivering maximum return on investment to your business.

We can also perform a global strategic audit and review – this will help to ensure that your reward and benefits package is ideal for your workforce and for your business around the world.
