Gowling WLG launches online benefits portal for UK staff

International law firm Gowling WLG has launched an online benefits portal that integrates a bespoke employee discounts scheme and concierge service for its UK employees.

The portal, provided by Xexec, will provide UK staff with access to over 3,000 bespoke discounts, including vouchers for lifestyle, health and wellbeing products, cashback offers, and shopping cards for a range of retailers.

The new scheme also includes a lifestyle concierge service that allows employees to get tickets to sports, arts, and entertainment events in the UK, as well as book restaurants, flights, and hotel rooms.

The new portal enables staff to access the benefits whether they are at home, at work, or on the move. Gowling WLG, which employs 1,400 staff globally, delivered its previous employee discounts scheme on a largely ad-hoc basis via its intranet.

Neil McKie (pictured), head of reward and performance at Gowling WLG, said: “We’re proud to be recognised as a top employer and we take employee benefits seriously. Not only does it allow us to attract and retain the best talent, but it also helps us get the most out of our teams.

“I know that our team really values the range of benefits that [the new scheme] can bring to their lives both in and out of the office.”
