Buck, a leading consulting, technology, and administration services firm specialising in pensions and employee benefits, has today announced the launch of its Delta+™ platform in the U.K. to help employers improve employee engagement, productivity, and efficiency in the ongoing administration of their benefits programmes.

Combining all elements of an organisation’s benefits provision in a way not seen before, Delta+ creates a comprehensive data analytics dashboard that not only allows employers to measure employee engagement with their current offerings, but also to gain a holistic view of the total cost of their reward and benefits programme, in real time, locally as well as globally. In addition, the technology enables companies to onboard new employees quickly and seamlessly, removing the administrative burden and streamlining processes for HR departments.

From an end-user perspective, Delta+ provides employees with an accessible and personalised summary of their benefits package, including health and wellbeing, share plans, and pensions, with each reward explained in detail so that employees can better understand and engage with them. The platform also helps employees to select benefits that will match their unique preferences and needs, as well as providing wellbeing programmes and lifestyle options.

John Deacon, Head of Employee Benefits at Buck, comments:

“After almost a year of remote working, it’s not surprising that many companies are finding it difficult to maintain their company culture and deliver an engaging wellbeing strategy. Without face-to-face contact with employees, it can be hard to truly understand what different people need, which makes it nearly impossible to provide benefits that are tailored to each staff member. Delta+ will help employers gain important insights into what employees value and what is and isn’t working from their current benefits offering, and will help employees understand how they can make the most of their benefits.

“Buck has a rich history of delivering flexible and innovative reward and benefits solutions that meet the changing needs of businesses and employees. Delta+ will further improve our ability to provide our clients with help in this area. With the Covid-19 pandemic affecting everyone’s daily life, the benefits that Delta+ can provide have come at just the right time. We’ve already begun implementing this technology to enable businesses to adjust to new ways of working and we are looking forward to broadening out the solution even further in the coming months.”
