What is Employee Benefits?
Employee Benefits are incentives provided by employers, in addition to a worker’s normal salary or wages. They are designed to help promote employee satisfaction, wellbeing and boost productivity, and could include anything from dental care plans to flexible working hours and private medical insurance. By law, employers must provide certain mandatory employee benefits in the UK to their employees. Such as, Pension entitlements, holiday pay, sick pay, maternity and paternity entitlements.

Black Mountain can provide more than just a standard retirement fund or a group risk benefit. We are uniquely placed in the People and HR outsourcing market and by having our own independent employee benefits consultants we can offer advice and communication on group protection, private medical insurance and other associated benefits.
Traditional Employee Benefits
It’s time for a new, smarter approach, going beyond just broking and really understanding your unique needs, requirements and diving into your data to manage your risks. Our expert consultants provide advice and communication on benefits packages such as: Group Protection, Private Medical Insurance, Long Term Disability and many more associated benefits that we believe build a strong company culture.
