Staffcare Receive Two Nominations from the WSB Awards - 10/08/2017
Staffcare are proud to have been shortlisted for two awards at this year’s WSB Awards.

Best Communications / Engagement Initiative
Working together with Northumbrian Water on their ‘Tap into…’ campaign Staffcare have nominated Northumbrian Water for the Best Communications / Engagement Initiative of the year category, recognising their use of Staffcare technology.

Using their new employee benefits portal as the lynchpin for their campaign Northumbrian water were able to simplify their benefits process. The scheme educated staff on the full extent of their benefits options.

With a carefully crafted internal communication campaign, Northumbrian Water were able to encourage employees to learn about their core benefits. This encouraged the use of the new platform and the uptake of more personalised, flexible benefits.

Throughout the campaign Northumbrian water were able to engage over 80% of their workforce and saw a rise in benefits take up by 5%. 

Best Use of Technology for Benefits
Staffcare have also been shortlisted for the Best Use of Technology for Benefits Award for the Staffcare 7.10 platform.

Designed to enable any organisation to present any benefit, from any provider, to any scheme design, organisations are able to truly tailor their platforms to their employees. 

Staffcare continuously invest in enhancing the experience of every major user group.  These enhancements form part of a major programme of works that achieve:
  1. 50% reduction in technical scoping and build
  2. Suite of tools to further enhance the administration capability and automation
  3. Standardised user experience design that allows ‘plug & play’ benefits to build into an enhanced employee user journey with no extra configuration

Our continuous development of the platform has meant that our clients and licensing partners are able to spend more time developing outstanding benefits programmes. Which, the technology will knit together into one simple, engaging platform.

We would like to congratulate all others whose hard work has been recognised through the WSB Awards and look forward to seeing everyone on the 7th September to celebrate.
