Learn from the best at this year’s Reward Live 2015

The Sky could literally the limit at this year’s third Reward Live conference, as one of the top speakers is none-other than John Whitaker, benefits consultant at the digital broadcaster.

Whitaker will be speaking to delegates to share his analytics insights implementing and managing Sky’s award-winning ‘My Sky Rewards’ employee benefits scheme.

The scheme, which includes full pension rights after just three months’ service, free life assurance and healthcare (as well as Free Sky+HD, broadband and discounted Talk, with many more extras thrown in), has won numerous awards over the years, mainly because it never stands still, and uses data to drive everything it does.

Every three years Sky implements a new three-year benefits strategy to ensure it always offers staff what they want. Recently staff could interact and talk to the HR team about benefits they wanted through social media tool, Chatter.

Innovations from these reviews have included the complete refresh of its entire voluntary benefits offering – including allowing staff to buy an iPad through salary sacrifice. Not surprisingly perhaps, more than 50% of staff have since taken up the offer.  

Other impressive statistics are that more than 95% of Sky’s workforce now belong to its DC pension scheme.

To hear more from Whitaker directly, he will be speaking at Reward Live on 13 May at Edgbaston.
