Full Pay and Benefit Reviews
Employee benefits reviews are driven by an employer’s desire to control costs, retain talent and harmonise their perks across its workforce.
Over 30 years experience
Getting the balance between cost and driving engagement right
Employers should review their employee benefits schemes regularly, but must be sure of the objectives they want to achieve. We can manage pay and benefit review processes and also job evaluation to ensure that people are paid fairly and equitably.
We can conduct Gender Pay Assessments for organisations and provide advice and guidance on the results and how to move forward.
From a strategic perspective, we can help ensure that your hr strategy has the key “objectives” included to ensure you retain your people for the long term. One of the most powerful “objectives” to creating the right culture is recognising the power of individual choice and this is where reward and flexibility of reward plays a large part.
We can support you with the retention of your key people through the use of bonus and incentive programmes tailored to meet the needs of your business with clear performance expectations. We are experienced in harmonisation of terms and conditions (pay and benefits), and also in cost reduction programmes ensuring you get the best deals in the market.
A review of employee benefits packages can be a real headache. With it comes a myriad of employee opinions and ideas and for many business owners and HR professionals it feels like a thankless task because you just can’t please everyone. However, never underestimate the power of an up-to-date, competitive offering.
Businesses need to get more out of their staff, so there is a big focus on productivity. Losing people from a business, particularly good people, distracts employers from their core market activity, so core engagement is quite important and needs to take place to get staff on board with any changes and understand the reasons for these.
Larger employers, meanwhile, review their benefits offerings to ensure these are harmonised and integrated across business divisions. These are typically employers that have merged or acquired new businesses with employees on legacy benefits packages.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.

5* all round, Mel was extremely helpful and answered all my questions, very friendly and professional. Recommended to others and would definitely use again. Thank you again Mel and Helen.
Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
