Celerant introduces GPP and flexible benefits scheme

Celerant Consulting has overhauled its benefits package by launching a group personal pension (GPP) for UK staff and a flexible benefits scheme.

It has also introduced a salary sacrifice arrangement around pension contributions into the GPP.

The process management company, which employs 120 UK staff, will contribute between 3% and 20% of members’ salaries into the GPP, depending on grade and length of service, while employees can opt to pay between 3% and 6% into the pot via salary sacrifice.

The GPP replaces six different schemes that were in place before and has helped increase pension membership to 80%.

The new pension was launched and communicated by Thomsons Online Benefits, as was the flexible benefits scheme.

Flex options include pension, life cover, income protection, medical cover, childcare vouchers and health screenings.

Huw Davies, Celerant’s European HR director, said the flex plan could be rolled out to 700 other staff based in Europe next year. He said the online tool was vital because the firm’s workforce is spread across the globe.
