Energy services firm Centrica and banking group BNP Paribas are the two organisations shortlisted in the Best flexible benefits plan category, sponsored by Zest, at the Employee Benefits Awards 2022.
This award celebrates the most effective use of a flexible benefits strategy within an organisation working to engage employees and deliver against their unique wants and needs.
In 2021, EDF won the award for Best flexible benefits plan. The judges approved of its focused strategy and alignment to its wider business goals, its senior management advocacy and use of focus groups to direct the journey, and its strong and clear link to its company values.
At the ceremony, Vanessa Corsie, benefits and pensions operations manager at EDF, said: “I’m really excited and pleased about winning as my team has worked so hard. I wanted to get recognised for what we had done and the work we’ve put in. We’ve kept a lot of employees happy in a tough time, and I’m pleased about that.”
The annual award ceremony recognises the work carried out by teams and organisations during 2021. A total of 22 categories have been shortlisted this year, including two new ones: Best benefits to support employees post-pandemic, sponsored by Salary Finance, and Best benefits to support menopause, fertility or pregnancy.
Comedian Simon Brodkin, best known as his alter ego Lee Nelson, will be hosting the 20th annual awards ceremony at the Honourable Artillery Company, London on Friday 24 June, which will bring together reward, benefits and HR professionals to celebrate best practice in the field, and network with peers and colleagues.
Guests can look forward to a champagne reception, three-course lunch and an after-party that will include live music, dodgems, a carousel and a big wheel in the venue’s private grounds.
