The Value of Employee Benefits

Insure your future today, ensure your future tomorrow

 

There seems to be an ever-growing list of risks to our future financial security – with the NHS under strain, life expectancy ever increasing, pension funds needing to last longer and the cost of living going up, it has never been more important to protect yourself and your family for the years ahead.

 

As a company, anticipating these risks and offering insurance solutions has become key to attracting and retaining the top talent, keeping them healthy and happy and ensuring business success. As this financial uncertainty grows, so does the importance of offering your employees more than just a good salary.

 

A business is nothing without its people and Cowens Employee Benefits can help give both employers and staff peace of mind should the worst happen.

 

Cowens experienced this first hand when Corporate Financial Administrator from the company’s Financial Planning team, Tracy Scotting, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016. Although shocking and terrible news, as an employee of Cowens, Tracy was automatically enrolled for Private Health Insurance as part of her employee benefits package, making all of her treatment readily available and more comfortable.

 

Tracy said: “Having private medical insurance of this scale included in our benefits package is incredibly rare and has made a world of difference to me and my family. I was able to have all eight rounds of chemotherapy in the comfort of my own home, with my own personal nurse, which was fantastic and all down to the brilliant cover provided by Cowens.

 

“I worked two weeks on, two weeks off, throughout my treatment and the whole team were a phenomenal support. There was no interruption to my clients, the team made sure all handovers were seamless and all my work was picked up in my absence. It was a true reflection on the values of the company; making sure the clients are happy and the staff are well looked after go hand in hand, to ensure the best possible service is delivered.”

 

Although Tracy chose to work throughout her cancer treatment, her employee benefits package also includes income replacement insurance, meaning she would have not missed out financially if she chose to take the full period off work.

 

Tracy continued: “I can’t praise Cowens enough for the benefits package they have in place for employees and the support they have shown. Having everything taken care of takes a huge burden off your shoulders at a difficult time.”
