Ian Mackenzie (pictured), head of pension and benefits at BNP Paribas, will discuss aligning a benefit and compensation strategy to an organisation’s goals at Employee Benefits Live 2015 on 21 September.
The session, entitled ‘Developing a benefit and compensation strategy to meet your organisation’s long-term goals’, will examine how to design a benefits package to drive employee performance, and using employee benefits to unify a group of businesses, which is something BNP Paribas has first-hand experience with.
In November 2014, BNP Paribas implemented a new single benefits scheme to align previous programmes in place at seven different core businesses, each with varied workforce profiles and cultures.
Mackenzie said: “We wanted to use benefits to create one vision with all our organisations, and show our staff the advantages of being part of a larger organisation.”
Mackenzie’s session will also examine the reasons why BNP Paribas wanted to align its benefits packages.
Mackenzie said: “Internal mobility between the seven businesses was a huge aim of ours. As the benefits will all be the same now, something that was once a barrier to mobility isn’t anymore.
“Mobility keeps talent within an organisation and creates opportunities for staff to develop.”
The organisation clocked up five wins at the Employee Benefits Awards 2015 in recognition of its efforts: best healthcare and wellbeing benefits – large employer; best flexible benefits plan – large employer; best alignment of benefits to business strategy; best benefits communications – large employer; and the Grand Prix.
At Employee Benefits Live, BNP Paribas’ Mackenzie will speak alongside L’Oreal UK’s compensation and benefits director, Ben Marks.
Employee Benefits Live 2015 will take place at Olympia National, London, on 21-22 September.
