Accor Services, Capital Incentives and Motivano merge

Accor Services, Capital Incentives and Motivano are coming together as a single organisation called Edenred from 1 July 2010.

Accor Services, which acquired Capital Incentives in 2004 and a majority share in Motivano in 2007, is de-merging from the Accor Hotels hospitality group.

Edenred will have a presence in 40 countries, serving 500,000 corporate customers. In the UK, Edenred will help organisations engage and motivate people to achieve enhanced performance.

This proposition brings together three providers of rewards and employee benefits solutions, such as flexible and voluntary benefits; employee savings; salary sacrifice schemes such as childcare vouchers; the Compliments reward brand which offers multi-retail cards, experiences and travel; expense management services; and a communications service developed to maximise returns on investment from any scheme.

Patrick Langlois, managing director of Accor Services (UK), said: “This is a great opportunity for us to complete our integration and offer one single and strong brand to the UK market.

“The three entities already have centralised IT, HR, marketing and operations teams, and our employee benefits, and incentive and motivation sales teams are operating across all products and services, so coming together as one is the final logical step to our ongoing planned development.”
