Baker & McKenzie, the leading global law firm, has launched a new employee benefits website for its 800 UK employees, in conjunction with Thomsons Online Benefits using their Darwin platform.
Baker & McKenzie’s scheme, called “BakerBenefits”, was put in place to provide a more efficient, user friendly and streamlined way of administering and communicating the reward package to employees.
The new scheme which is immediately available to new joiners, enables employees to select from a wide range of employee benefits including pension, private medical insurance, dental insurance, travel insurance and gym subsidy. It also promotes the additional services that the Firm offers which include an on-site doctor’s surgery, emergency childcare, on-site yoga and concierge services.
Martin Blackburn, HR Director at Baker & McKenzie comments: “As a Sunday Times Best 100 Company and a Times Top 100 Graduate Employer, it is clearly important that our approach to benefits is in line with that positioning. I'm delighted that through working with Thomsons we have implemented a market leading system through which our employees can make their benefit choices in a way that aligns to their individual circumstances."
