New quarterly newsletter for business owners, managers, human resource and financial professionals

Managing Employee Benefits is our new quarterly newsletter for business owners, managers, human resource and financial professionals.

Our intention is to keep you up-to-date with employee reward and benefit news helping you to recruit, retain and motivate your employees.

At Mattioli Woods, we define them as anything you give to your employees. Traditionally, this has meant a salary along with certain benefits which most employers provide. These include pensions, life cover, medical insurance, sickness pay and holidays.

These traditional benefits are now changing. Auto-enrolment and compulsory employer contributions bring challenges to many, but thanks to our experience and expertise, even the most complicated of schemes can be simpler and more straightforward to establish and manage.

Increasingly many of our corporate clients are seeking new ways to recruit, retain and engage their workforce.

We work with employers to review existing or implement new reward and benefit packages and provide ongoing advice to ensure that the package remains competitive and up-to-date with changes in legislation and the business.

We arrange, recommend, operate and administer schemes globally, providing advice and guidance on life cover, medical insurance, salary protection, rewards and lifestyle-related benefits.

Corporate employee benefit consultants and independent financial advisers.

Mattioli Woods plc was set up in January 2001, offering bespoke independent financial advice to corporate and private clients.

The company was set-up with the clear objective of providing the best customer service in the industry. We fill what we see as the quality gap in the provision of employee benefits and wealth management.

With the introduction of stakeholder pensions, many employee benefit advisers are looking to reduce the services they provide to companies. At the same time, technological advances and legislative pressures are combining to dramatically alter the pensions marketplace. Quality advice to employers and employees has never been so important.
