Synstar’s flex on net

Synstar, the customer delivery company which is part of Hewlett-Packard, is rolling out an online flexible benefits package to its employees.

It decided to launch the scheme online to ensure benefits could be communicated to all employees, not just those based in its head office.

Justine Latter, compensation and benefits manager, said: "We have staff working [remotely], who are difficult to reach."

The plan is provided by Orbit Benefits and includes a healthcare cash plan, childcare vouchers, payroll giving and income protection.
