The latest raft of benefits follows the updates made last year, which saw Personal Group make increases to basic annual leave allowance, extensions to bereavement and annual leave, and the introduction of private medical insurance for all staff.

These improvements enhanced the pre-existing core benefits offered by Personal Group, such as worldwide travel insurance for staff and their families, salary sacrifice for cars and bikes, home technology, parking and holiday purchase. Everyday retail discounts, gym membership, access to a free and confidential Employee Assistance Programme and a non-contributory pension scheme are also available to all Personal Group employees.

“These improvements are yet more proof of our commitment to positively impact our employees’ lives, both outside of work and during working hours. We are constantly looking at how we can build upon our deep understanding of the key issues and dynamics in the lives of our staff so that we can offer a benefits and rewards package that impacts directly on their happiness and wellbeing, and we see these recent improvements as another step in this journey.”
