Employee-directed benefits tailored for a remote workforce

Get a closer look at employee-centered benefits for remote teams

We will remember 2020 as the year that changed the global workforce forever. The pandemic has forced companies to adapt to remote work and dispersed teams, and in doing so, we’re seeing significant changes in how employee benefits are offered.

In the future, flexibility and the ability to meet the unique needs of employees will be crucial to a company’s HR strategy. The concept of “offering employees options” can no longer be just a slogan, but a reality that every HR leader must make a priority to maintain a healthy and motivated workforce.

At Perkset, we have been dedicated to providing personalized employee benefits for the past three years. From the very beginning, we realized that regardless of an employee’s workplace, lifestyle, age, or marital status, they should have access to health and wellness programs that meet their needs. In 2017, we developed a solution focused on employee choice, and over the past three years, we’ve had the privilege of working with several progressive companies to develop employee-centered programs for their teams. Leading organizations have already integrated the Perkset platform and are well on their way to supporting their diverse and dispersed workforce.

Now, more than ever, we believe that the modern remote work environment is the impetus that will accelerate the widespread adoption of employee-centric benefits.

The key ingredients for employee-directed benefits

If you’re thinking about implementing employee-directed benefits within your workforce, here are a few things to consider:

  • An intuitive interface: Employees want a benefits tool that’s easy to use and simple to navigate.
  • Curated vendors with preferred pricing: Offering benefits that are relevant to employees increases the effectiveness of a benefits program. At Perkset, we negotiate directly with vendors so that companies don’t have to haggle with individual vendors and get access to a wider range of offerings.
  • Pre-programmed debit card: Employees want access to benefits wherever and whenever they need them. Perkset debit cards are loaded with each employee’s benefits accounts so that individuals can automatically use them at eligible vendors on-the-go.
  • Real-time customer service: Employees should get questions answered quickly, consistently, and without the guesswork. We use real-time support via an in-app chat feature.

Why every company should consider employee-directed benefits

  • Improved employee experience: In customer interactions, a whopping 95% of responders report being happy when using benefits via Perkset.
  • Increased employee engagement: We see a direct correlation between a simple interface and employee engagement, as most Forma customers report an engagement rate of 75% or higher.
  • Less administrative work: HR teams see a significant reduction of employee inquiries, only a ¼ of what they had seen before implementing Perkset.
  • Reduced costs: Employees get an average of 20% savings on all preferred vendors, putting more money in employees’ pockets.
  • Equality for the global workforce: Perkset is used by employees working all over the world, we’re in more than 40 countries and growing every day.

This is just the beginning of employee-directed benefits. Today, we support conventional pre-tax accounts like FSA, HSA, and commuter benefits as well as new-gen benefits including lifestyle planning, wellness, and family support. And we will continue to customize spending accounts even further in the future. We’re excited to see how this market evolves as we support employees wherever they are and throughout their careers.
