Often times, people expect to have the option to get some benefits in the workplace, whether that is health care, company cars or workplace pensions, particularly when your business reaches a certain size.
If you’re a small business which is focussing on growing, you may have reached the conclusion that you’re ready to start providing some of these benefits for your employees.
A good place to start (besides the soon to be compulsory workplace pensions) is with healthcare benefits. These are typically done on an opt-in basis, where your staff would choose whether or not they’d be prepared to sacrifice a small portion of their income (typically about £20 per month) in order to get higher quality, private healthcare. If enough people are interested you’ll be able to negotiate a lower price per person through a an exclusive business deal.
