Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council
"PROVIDING AWARD-WINNING EMPLOYEE BENEFITS THROUGH COST NEUTRAL SOLUTIONS"
Sandwell is a Metropolitan Borough Council in the Black Country made up of six large towns - Oldbury, Rowley Regis, Smethwick, Tipton, Wednesbury and West Bromwich.
Sandwell are responsible for managing and delivering all aspects of the borough’s public services; from bin collections, to schools, roads and public housing. With such a large remit, its workforce is just as large; with over 4,500 employees from diverse and multi-generational backgrounds in various locations.
The pressure was on Sandwell to offer a staff benefits programme that not only offered a wide range of benefits to suit their disparate workforce, but would also keep their employees engaged... while being delivered cost neutrally. No pressure, then!
In response to their needs, we provided Sandwell Council with an extensive employee benefits and recognition scheme based
on the needs of their staff. The discounts available have generated substantial savings for both the council and their employees.
We spoke to Mark Stanley, Senior HR Partner at Sandwell Council, about the reasoning behind offering new employee benefits and how they’re working against their objectives… click on the image below to view the case study!
