Work Life Balance Gemelli Employee Benefits

Help employees get the right balance in 2016 and see the difference it could make to your business.

Life always feels better when we look after ourselves properly and everything’s in balance: our health and well-being improves, we handle stress better, and we’re more fulfilled at home and at work. Gemelli’s range of wellbeing employee benefit schemes are all designed to help staff keep themselves fit and healthy, and – in achieving a better work-life balance – help them make a greater contribution to the workplace. Our wellbeing benefit schemes mean that there’s something for everyone. And to show you just how easily you can help your staff look after themselves better in 2016, here is a selection of our most popular ones:

Discounted Health Club & Gym Membership

The relationship between exercise and the feel-good afterglow that results is well recognised. Moreover, regular exercise can also reduce the risk of certain health conditions such as heart disease and stroke. Quite simply, this scheme promotes health, fitness and well-being amongst employees. It’s a simple and flexible scheme that offers employees discounted Health Club and Gym Memberships. With no administration for the employer, it’s a voluntary benefit allowing staff to join a club at the lowest corporate rate, purchased directly by the employee. Nationwide selection from over 2,700 clubs (high street names and independents), many with Joining fees waived. Savings range from 10% - 30%. Discounts can apply to existing memberships and can be extended to immediate family.

Cycle To Work

Cycling is yet another way to stay fit and healthy, and, if staff live within cycling distance of their workplace, using a bike to commute there makes a lot of sense. Gemelli’s Cycle to Work Scheme could be just the incentive an employee needs to get in the saddle. The Cycle to Work scheme operates on a salary exchange basis allowing an employee to cover the cost of a bike and safety accessories up to a value of £1,000 – without having to pay tax or National Insurance on the value. Additionally, the scheme is self-financing and enables the employer to make savings on Employer National Insurance Contributions. Save up to 42% on the cost of a brand new bike and/or accessories and spread the cost over 12 or 18 months. Use bike supplier of your choice. Gemelli organises everything else...

Health Screening

Just as important as being fit and active is making sure that you’re proactively looking after your health and well-being – both at home and work. The Gemelli Health Screening Scheme is an effective way to improve this. Also operated via salary exchange, this self-financing scheme gives employees the opportunity to benefit from screenings at a significantly reduced cost, and employers the chance to make financial savings on Employer NI Contributions.As well as helping to identify pre-existing health problems and uncover medical conditions early, it also provides peace of mind and lifestyle recommendations on keeping fit and healthy and how to help prevent further ailments. The scheme offers a range of comprehensive health screenings at significantly reduced cost.Save between 32% and 47% through tax and National Insurance savings with the option to spread cost over 6 or 12 months. (Option for employer to subsidise cost.) Choice of clinic locations.

Health Cash Plans

Making sure that you look after yourself properly isn’t just about the big decisions in life – it also extends to everyday healthcare. As one of the UK’s fastest growing employee benefits, Health Cash Plans offer a simple and affordable way for employees to   healthcare . Designed to suit all types of businesses and budgets, this employer sponsored (or voluntary employee paid) savings plan enables staff to pay for their everyday healthcare and recoup up to 100% of their costs via prompt cashback payments. Covers a range of common healthcare areas (including dentistry, optical, chiropody, physiotherapy, specialist consultations, Alternative Therapies) starting from as little as £1.20 per week per employee.
