Employers increasingly offer more than 20 benefits via flex

The Employee Benefits/Towers Watson Flexible Benefits Research 2014 shows a continued rise in the proportion of employers offering their staff access to more than 20 flexible benefits over the last seven years.

The research shows that 10% of employers offer their staff access to more than 20 benefits, which is a steady growth from the 3% of respondents which did so in 2007. 

The proportion of employers offering between 16 and 20 benefits through their flex plan has also increased, up from 11% in 2007.

Those offering fewer than five may only be offering tax-efficient benefits on a salary sacrifice basis
