VIB Awards - 4/4 Clean Sweep

15 May 2015

Yesterday was the inaugural Very Important Benefits Awards (VIBs) hosted by Reward Guide Magazine at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham. We’re pleased to announce that having been shortlisted for four awards, we received a clean sweep winning:

  • Best Employee Benefits Consultant
  • Best Flexible Benefits Provider
  • Communications Company of the Year
  • Reward Provider of the Year

Alex Tullett, head of benefit strategy, said: “We’re delighted. Over the last two years we’ve moved to a very scientific approach to benefits design, and this is great vindication of all our hard work. It’s definitely a feather in our cap.”

Susan Ring, chief executive, commented: “I was absolutely delighted that we were crowned winners for all four awards. Our increased focus in utilising consumer analytics to better understand our client’s employees and how they interact with benefits has fed into our ‘audience of one’ employee communication and technology approach, providing our clients with a strong benefits programme. In addition to this we have developed a strategic partnership with WorkAngel to transform the way employers motivate, reward and communicate with their employees.”

The VIB Awards are held in conjunction with the Reward Live Conference hosted by Reward Guide Magazine. Dr Eric Tyree, chief data scientist at Capita Employee Benefits, was presenting on the second day of the event on how consumer analytics can be used improve benefit strategy. Here are a couple of tweets from the session:
