Iron Mountain launches flexible benefits

Iron Mountain has appointed Aon Consulting to develop and implement a flexible benefits programme for its UK employees for the first time.

In addition to traditional benefits such as life assurance, critical illness dental insurance and the ability to buy and sell holidays, the information protection and storage services firm added a green travel to work scheme. This reduces the cost of employee’s annual bus season tickets by saving tax and national insurance contributions.

SpreeFlex Retail, where employees can purchase a range of discounts at retailers, was also added along with a cycle-to-work scheme.

Following the implementation of flexible benefits in the UK, Iron Mountain plans to roll out flex across Europe.

Paul Wilding, reward director at Iron Mountain Europe, said: “We have been working with Aon Consulting across Europe for many years on the risk and healthcare aspects of our employee benefits proposition. I have been impressed by the services we received, therefore using Aon to implement our flex programme was an obvious choice and I am looking forward to working with them to establish our first flexible benefits programme outside the US.”
