Podcast: Trayport adapts benefits to keep culture alive through pandemic

Listen: In this episode of the Employee Benefits podcast, David Glennon, rewards manager at Trayport, discusses some of the employee wellbeing projects that the software organisation put in place to support staff during the pandemic.

These initiatives led to Trayport winning the award for Best benefits to support employees during the pandemic – small employer, at 2021’s Employee Benefits Awards. The employer quickly adapted its approach to offer staff constant wellbeing support through its ‘working from home doesn’t mean working alone’ campaign. This included weekly themed wellbeing support through webinars, podcasts, Zoom quizzes and other entertainment, including a magician. As part of its holistic wellbeing focus, Trayport broadened the scope of its fitness allowance to not only include gym memberships, but also classes such as yoga, mindfulness and online fitness.
