UK - A flexible benefits plan which gives employees the chance to develop computer skills through internet access at home has been launched by Kettering Borough Council.
The e-learning programme – Learning For All – is offered as part of a wider benefits scheme which provides staff with choices to suit individual circumstances.
The council is encouraging as many of its 500 employees as possible to take part in the scheme, which is designed to raise skill levels and make it an “employer of choice” in the region.
Learning For All – provided by Futuremedia – offers staff who do not have access to a computer at work, a low-cost fully-installed % with internet access on a tax efficient salary sacrifice basis.
Staff also get e-learning programmes covering work-related and personal development.
Head of human resources Howard Crabtree said offering choice to employees was a “big priority”.
