In 2022, British Airways scooped the top prize after coming up with an innovative way to maintain and improve employee retention, while delivering cost savings and ensuring any initiative aligned with its ethos of putting sustainability at its heart. It introduced an electric car leasing scheme with tax and national insurance (NI) savings for staff and the employer, aligning with its sustainability programme ‘BA Better World’.
A British Airways spokesperson said: “One of the things we do really well at BA is we listen to what our [employees] want, and electric vehicles and sustainability has been really at the core of what we’ve focused on over the last few years, despite the pandemic. We wanted to do something that enhanced their benefits offering when things were quite a struggle for us as an organisation. It’s been really well received and the take up has been great.”
The Employee Benefits Awards, which is in its 21st year and celebrates those driving excellence through their reward and benefits strategies, will be held at the Honourable Artillery Company, London on Friday 23 June.
The daytime event will include a drinks reception, three-course meal, entertainment and the chance to network with industry professionals. The after-party will include live music, dodgems, a carousel and a big wheel in the venue’s private grounds.
