Baker Hughes and EasyJetEnergy technology firm Baker Hughes and airline operator EasyJet have been shortlisted in the Best benefits communications – large employer category at the Employee Benefits Awards 2024.

The award was created to recognise the most effective benefits communications strategy for employers with more than 1,500 full-time staff. Successful entrants will have demonstrated an effective and innovative approach to benefits communications.

The full shortlist is:

  • Baker Hughes
  • Bidfood
  • Defra Group – Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
  • DP World
  • E.On
  • EasyJet
  • Wood

In 2023, Mizuho won the Best benefits communication award. This was due to its creation of a harmonised suite of benefits that are relevant, inclusive and value for money, following a review of its UK reward offering. It used targeted email communications to raise awareness among employees before, during and after its annual benefits enrolment window.

The campaign aimed to empower staff to use the self-service functionality in order to reduce calls to the HR team. It led to high levels of take up among employees; following the launch, the new benefits package saw 89% of employees submit their benefits choices.

The judges said: “This entry demonstrated brilliantly clear communications, which were well executed and delivered brilliant results.”

The Employee Benefits Awards, now in its 22nd year, recognise those driving excellence through their reward and benefits strategies.

The daytime event, which will be held at the Honourable Artillery Company, London on Friday 14 June, will include a drinks reception, three-course meal, entertainment and the chance to network with industry professionals. The after-party will feature live music and a funfair in the venue’s private grounds.
