Why did you choose Zest as your benefits platform?
“We have 170 employees, and we wanted them to have easier access to their benefits and to see exactly where we were spending money on them and the options available to them. Our previous platform hadn’t had any investment in it, and we wanted to give our employees more. Zest gave us features that weren’t previously available.”
How was the onboarding process?
“We decided to use Zest as our new benefits platform in February 2018, in March, we started work on implementing it, and we were up and running by our deadline of June. Along the journey, we wanted a few tweaks made, so we ironed out the details over the phone and also went to Zest’s premises to play around with and customise the software for our needs. The Zest staff offered us training which was appreciated by all. They were accommodating at every stage.”
What makes Zest stand out from the crowd?
“We love the fact that our employees can now view their full benefits statement in entirety, not only their elected benefits but also the ones that the company have offered to them at no cost to themselves.
If someone is contemplating leaving the company (maybe they’ve been offered more money elsewhere) they might check Zest and discover that the actual amount they would be making at their new job would be less than they are currently making due to the lack of benefits that would now have to be paid out of pocket. This would include things such as the cost of Crown Agents Bank paying for their family’s healthcare, income protection and pension. Zest allows our employees to see exactly the cost to us of giving them these benefits and the impact it has on their base salary.”
