JLT Employee Benefits Revamps Benefit Portal BENPAL

06 March 2017

JLT Employee Benefits (JLT), the UK’s fourth largest pension and employee benefits consultant, launches today an upgraded offering of its employee benefits portal, BENPAL.

BENPAL supports the JLT Benefit and Reward consultancy services that help companies to design and implement an effective employee benefits and wellbeing programme in order to meet the demands of their increasingly diverse workforce today and to predict their needs of tomorrow. The service is aimed at companies across all sectors and can be scaled up and down to suit all sizes of business.

Engagement is a key factor in achieving a successful reward and benefits programme. With this in mind, BENPAL was designed to enable employees to tailor their benefits and adjust the balance of their investment in various areas to suit their lifestyle. This gives them greater control over their benefits and should materially improve their engagement and recognition of their employer’s investment.

Other features of BENPAL include:

  • Secure data storage
  • Clear visibility and control of benefit costs
  • Low administration requirements
  • Employer access to benefits data
  • Employer branding and ability to configure dashboard
  • User friendly for both employers and employees
  • Available to employees through PC, tablet, laptop and mobile phone

Andrew Drake, Reward & Benefits Director at JLT Employee Benefits, says: “BENPAL has been developed based on client, user, and external expert advice. We have created a consumer grade user experience for employees that will inspire them to want to access their benefits. As a result, employers will receive greater recognition for their investment. 

“Most importantly, BENPAL is much more than just software. It is part of JLT’s full suite of consultancy services that employers may require at any point of their reward and benefits cycle. Whether it is to design a benefits programme, select and broker benefits contracts with providers, communicate benefit programmes to staff, or review benefit strategies against set goals, our team of experts can help.

“Companies are faced with an ongoing challenging economic and regulatory environment. As BENPAL is easy to set up and requires little resources to run, we expect employers to find this a particularly attractive solution.”
