Flexible Health Benefits Explained
Flexible health benefits are an increasingly popular tax-efficient way to provide your employees with an attractive selection of options.
New research by employee benefits organisation Portus Consulting indicates that 26% of respondents offer online flexible benefits schemes, compared with 15% in 2011.
- The “HR in law employee benefits survey 2013″ used data from 122 legal firms
- The rise was greatest amongst the top 100 law firms, where the increase was from 21% in 2011 to 51% in 2013
The research also highlighted how responsible employers are increasingly implementing changes that recognise the importance of staff wellbeing. For example, flexible working. 67% of respondents now allow between 10% -30% of staff to work flexibly, – an increase from 2011 when the figure was 48%.

The perfect Flex Choice
Old traditional health screening benefits can cost the employee £20 or more per month, making it unattractive, with poor take-up. Add an option that is between £6-9 and the popularity and take-up increases greatly. PLUS – add in a supplier that is happy to support flexible benefit road shows and actively promote the benefit – and it’s a recipe for Flex success.
