For Your Business
Whether you run a small, medium or large enterprise, there will be a need to consider the implications for you in the areas below. We have many years’ experience advising companies of varying size, as well as advising senior management on their own personal circumstances. Providing effective benefits for your employees and protecting your business in event of loss of key staff can be crucial to the smooth running of a business.
For Your Employees
A key element in the successful running of your business can depend on the ability to attract and retain high quality staff; one of the most effective ways of achieving this is by providing an attractive benefits package. Whether you choose to offer staff a package that includes a generous holiday entitlement, a company car or a suite of financial products it is important that the benefits are relevant and cost effective.
Whether you’re a new company, employing staff for the first time or looking to switch your scheme, our workplace pension scheme options are suitable for any employer with a minimum of 2 contributing employees joining the scheme. Our workplace pension scheme options are easy to set up and manage online, with support from our partners’ UK-based teams. We provide a free initial assessment of your needs and will work with you to get the best possible pension for your business and employees.
As an employer, you need to set up a workplace pension scheme for your staff, and there is a danger that trying to understand and implement all of this could take up a disproportionate amount of time of your time and in many cases it could end up costing a lot more than it needs to.
Most businesses will have insured their buildings and stock against flood, fire and theft, but all businesses have other assets – human assets, whose value is often unprotected. However, in today’s ever-changing world what would happen if a business partner, a major shareholder or a key member of your organisation was to die or contract a critical illness? What would the financial impact be? Would your business survive, and, if so, how well?
As Independent Advisers we are able to guide you through the whole protection market ensuring you receive the best value contracts available to meet your requirements.
In a highly competitive business environment the difference between success and failure can often be measured by the quality of a company’s workforce. More often than not, it is their skills and abilities which are the key factors in shaping the success of the organisations that employ them. However, recruiting and retaining people with the right kinds of skills and attributes can prove difficult.
