The GSMA has launched online total reward statements and flexible benefits in order to enhance employees’ understanding of their benefits package and array of choice, while also maximising the value of its reward spend.
The international organisation that represents the interests of the mobile communications industry teamed up with Thomsons Online Benefits to launch GSMA Life scheme. A wide range of media and face-to-face presentations were used to communicate the scheme to staff.
A bespoke benefits website allows The GSMA’s 127 UK-based employees to visualise their total reward on top of salary, make benefits selections and manage their pension in real time. Some of the benefits on offer are private medical insurance, cycle-to-work, childcare vouchers, gym membership, discounted dining and health assessments
Employees can also opt to contribute via salary sacrifice to their group personal pension in order to save on national insurance contributions, and can use the pension calculator on their site to forecast their retirement income.
Helen Armstrong, HR services manager at The GSMA, said: “The launch of GSMA Life reaffirms our commitment to our people. With the help of Thomsons Online Benefits we have improved employees’ appreciation of their benefits package and feedback has been very positive. We are now thinking of rolling-out the scheme in our other locations starting with the US.”
