Talented and hard-working individuals are one of the most important assets to any business, and anything that improves employee retention is a worthwhile investment. Employee loyalty can be nurtured in a wide range of ways, with everything from competitive salaries to a healthy work environment fostering a feeling of respect and appreciation, but few things are more effective than an attractive employee benefits scheme.

More than just a legal requirement for all UK businesses, implementing mandatory employment benefits such as pension plans, holiday pay, statutory sick pay and maternity/paternity leave is key to protecting employee loyalty. A task which can present a host of unanticipated challenges due to heavy regulations, remaining compliant with employment benefits law is an obligation shared with every size of business, across every sector and industry.
