Barbon adds childcare vouchers to flex

EXCLUSIVE: Barbon Insurance has added childcare vouchers to its flexible benefits scheme.

The scheme, which has been in place since 2009, also includes dental insurance, private medical insurance (PMI) and a holiday purchase scheme.

Employees can now use their 2% flexible benefits allowance to purchase childcare vouchers, which were previously offered to staff as a voluntary benefit through provider Allsave.

Sarah Minter, reward manager at Barbon Insurance, said: “A lot people struggle with the cost of childcare, so [employees] can use [their] 2% allowance to buy some extra childcare vouchers.”

The organisation’s flexible benefits window opens on 9 August 2013.

Sarah Minter will be speaking about auto-enrolment at Employee Benefits Live on 25 September at Olympia, London.
