UK - Gissings, one of the UK's leading employee benefit advisory firms, has launched a new employee communication and advisory service (ECAS).
Clive Grimley, director of ECAS said: Our employee communication and advisory service reflects the change of emphasis that we have placed on this range of services and also the growing importance of communication, particularly with the increasing demand for defined contribution pension schemes.
The ECAS discipline will focus on the delivery of the following services:-
* Providing advice regulated under the Financial Services Act 1986, predominantly to employees who work for Gissings’ corporate clients. In the main, this will involve dealing with a range of pension planning and retirement issues
* Employee presentations and surgeries
* ECAS will take responsibility for the provision of employee helplines, commencing with group personal pension/stakeholder helplines
Gissings founded in 1970, is a specialist designer and supplier of employee benefit packages for large, medium and small companies throughout the UK. Gissings provides pension, healthcare and employee benefits that are designed to meet the specific needs of each client company and their staff.
