Since partnering with Thomsons in 2012, we have overhauled our benefits strategy to align it to our business mission, and allow us to continue to attract and retain the best talent. Our Employee Benefits award is a testament to the results. But the journey doesn't end here and we continue to work closely with Thomsons to ensure our benefit strategy contributes to our goal of being an employer of choice.

Brian Newman

VP, Human Resources International - Live Nation

Helping all our younger employees understand that their financial future is important is hard; helping them understand the benefits that contribute to their future is even harder. In the span of just four years we transformed our company culture so that financial health and wellbeing sat at its heart. By working with Thomsons and using the power of technology and amazing employee communication we were able to engage our employees in their benefits and to make it fun for them, resulting in over 90% employee engagement!

Head of UK Rewards & HR Efficiencies - Danone

Imagine if 12 months ago I said to our employees that one day they’d be sat in front of the latest, greatest, state of the art online benefits portal. Overflowing with exciting new benefits and one that’s so intuitive; it actually promotes your business as a “Great Place to Grow” at every click. They would have looked at me in that certain way! Isn’t it great how quickly things change? With everything that’s new and innovative, you must have a fully connected communication strategy and know how to implement it. It really doesn’t matter how great your offering is or how interactive your platform may be – without engaging your employees in the right way, you wouldn’t even get them to log on! With Thomsons, we get both – a great benefits portal, brilliant employee communication resulting in over 80 percent employee engagement.
