Lovewell’s Logic: Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Debbie Lovewell-Tuck

As 2015 draws to a close and attention inevitably turns to what lies ahead in 2016, it can be easy to forget to take a minute to stop and reflect on the year we’ll soon be leaving behind.

Yet, when life is rushing past at what can feel like a million miles an hour, I believe it’s important to take stock of everything we’ve achieved over the past 12 months.

In the past 12 months, we’ve seen:

  • The most far-reaching pension reforms in recent history come into effect
  • The first employers reach pensions auto-re-enrolment
  • The introduction of shared parental leave – and subsequent announcement that this will be extended to grandparents
  • The creation of a new national living wage
  • Employers, such as LinkedIn, introducing unlimited holiday
  • The rise of wearable technology in health and wellbeing strategies
  • Organisations, including SurveyMonkey and Visa, introducing genetic testing as a benefit for staff
  • And of course, Employee Benefits got a whole new look!

I look forward to seeing what 2016 will have in store. I’m sure it will be equally eventful!

Hope you all have a wonderful festive period and a happy, healthy new year.

See you in 2016!
