Zest Benefits has announced that its employee benefits technology platform has been selected by FTSE250 listed Travis Perkins. The company is the UK’s largest distributor of building materials to the building, construction and home improvement markets and will use the Zest solution to deliver its innovative employee benefits package to more than 25,000 employees in more than 2000 branches, stores and sites around the UK.
“We are delighted that Travis Perkins has made the decision to use our employee benefits technology,” said Zest CEO, Ray Sieber. “Our award-winning solutions are built on rapid, powerful client configuration rather than the cumbersome hard coding approach used by the industry historically, which means significantly reduced cost and less risk for Travis Perkins. It also means that we are able to meet their tight timeframes and get their new platform live in weeks rather than months and all in good time to meet their rapidly approaching benefits window. Along with the unrivalled raft of benefits and high levels of employee engagement that Travis Perkins will be able to offer using the Zest solution, this speed of delivery and implementation was crucial in their decision to work with Zest.”
Commenting on the decision to partner with Zest, Paul Nelson, Reward and HR Analytics Director at Travis Perkins, said: “We believe that the foundations of a successful business are the people you employ and we work hard to foster a workplace environment that not only supports employees but encourages personal and collaborative development. An integral part of this is the ability to offer our employees the best possible reward and benefits programme delivered in the most user-friendly manner. The scope, scale, flexibility and cost effectiveness of the Zest platform is hugely impressive and the fact that other Zest clients in our sector were happy to endorse them made our decision that much easier. Working in tandem with strategic partners like Zest will ensure we can maintain and build our sector leading employer brand over the coming years.”
