CSC adds second enrolment window to flexible benefits plan

CSC has added a second enrolment window to its flexible benefits scheme to encourage its 7,500 UK employees to take advantage of its financial benefits.

The scheme, which has been in place for 10 years, has take-up levels at nearly 80%, but the IT firm wanted to highlight benefits such as the group personal pension (GPP) plan, a cash individual savings account (Isa), an equity Isa and an internet savings account.

Jenny Davidson, director of compensation and benefits, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at CSC, said: “Employees tend to focus on the annual things, such as how much holiday they should take, whether they want private medical insurance for the year, or taking life assurance, critical illness or holiday shopping vouchers.

“We really want them to focus on some of the longer-term benefits as well.”

The annual flex enrolment window will still be in November, with benefits effective from 1 January, but the new election window will be opened every March.
