Jessie Hiney, an associate at EC Harris, has been with the company for just over six years.
She particularly values the extensive range of perks offered through the firm’s flexible benefits scheme My Share. “It offers virtually everything other than pet [insurance],” she says.
Hiney uses her flex fund to buy dental cover, extra holiday, travel insurance and also opts into the company’s stakeholder pension plan. In her opinion, the best perk is the dental cash plan. “I have a very sweet tooth and my mouth is full of crowns. [They] cost me about £1,000 [each] and I get up to about £400 back. I know that there isn’t a year when frankly I don’t have at least two crowns put in with root canal fillings and you can’t get an NHS dentist, it is as simple as that,” she explains.
