Staff perks fare well at Schlumberger

Schlumberger Oilfield Services has added three new options to its flexible benefits plan for its 2,500 UK staff. Bikes for work, wine club membership and a financial advice service were included in its latest enrolment period, which was held last month.

Employees’ choices took effect on 1 July. Barbara Carlin, flex and insurance manager, said she wanted to add some different types of benefits to liven up the scheme, which launched in 2002.
