Flexible Benefits Packages

Wilsons has helped many organisations to put in place flexible benefits packages that both reward and retain their employees. This approach has a number of advantages for both the employer and their people, ensuring they get exactly what they require, such as:

  • Improved Communication – Demonstrate the true value of benefits to your employees with on-demand total reward statements in a well presented, easy to understand format
  • Reduced Scheme Administration – Integrate data from providers and your own admin systems, whilst empowering employees to keep data up-to-date. Your scheme admins have central access to all data, subject to access rights
  • Self Service – Your employees can select and manage their own flexible benefit options, as well as other data data including pensions, emergency contacts, training records, holiday requests and absence records
  • Online Access – Access your Benefits Portal online securely, to serve your employees locally, nationally and globally

Income Protection

Income Protection forms a key component of a comprehensive employee benefits package and can:

  • Income – Provides a level of income for your employees typically beginning after 6 months absence, which can pay up to 80% of salary until they return to work or retire
  • Rehabilitation – Provide a rehabilitation programme to help get employees back to work
  • Reassurance – Provide reassurance to employees they will be looked after if they are ill or injured
  • Administration – Provide support for your administration team as the provider will stay in touch with all parties, including GPs, to keep your employee on track and you up to date
  • Return to Work – Provides return to work support as the provider will let you know if reasonable adjustments have to be made to the workplace to uphold your duty of care

Group Life / DIS

It’s such a difficult time, highly charged with emotion and unexpected considerations for everyone involved – the family, employer and colleagues alike.  At such a difficult time having practical guidance available, as well as financial support for your employees loved ones, can be invaluable.

We have been advising businesses on Group Life cover for many years, ensuring that the sometimes complex factors involved in setting up this benefit are fully considered, the right provider is selected and the scheme is set up efficiently and cost effectively.

Group Medical

Private medical cover ensures swift, effective treatment in a comfortable environment and reduces the time employees are absent from work. Having the right cover in place – a group policy, international plan or a cash plan – can mean reduced absence and associated costs including down-time, temporary cover and lost contracts. It will also enhance your employee benefits package, helping you to attract high-calibre candidates and retain key staff.

Over 100 years of innovation

  • 1914

    A successful launch! The Wilson Organisation was founded in Nottingham by Harold Wilson and became the first company in the East Midlands to offer a comprehensive insurance policy to the region’s fast-growing band of automobile drivers. Innovation from day one.

  • 1920s

    During the 1920’s, Wilsons developed its commercial insurance offering under the stewardship of Harold Wilson. Hopping forwards 80 years, Wilsons has developed a number of industry specialisms including a particular expertise in the food and drink sector. We created a unique insurance offering called “FoodProtect” and, through this service, have been able to deliver intelligence and cost-effective insurance programmes to a broad spread of leading food producers. The best thing since sliced bread? Maybe not, but we’re working on it.

  • 1949

    John Prow joined Harold Wilson in the business, marking the first generation of the Prow family’s involvement in The Wilson Organisation. Wilsons’ clients included leading Nottingham firm Boots The Chemist plus a number of operators in the burgeoning railway sector. With post-war regeneration beginning apace, the firm’s fledgling construction expertise quickly developed into one of our leading offerings and this continues through to the present day, with clients including national and regional builders, developers, contractors, sub-contractors and architects.

  • 1960s

    The 1960s were the start of a new era for The Wilson Organisation. Harold Wilson and John Prow died on the same day in 1963, Harold of illness and John in a car crash. This left John’s son, John J Prow, to run the growing business at the age of 27. Under his youthful direction, Wilsons benefited from a new energy and direction. John J Prow, who had joined in 1960 in a new business role, led the move into our current premises at Wilson House in 1964 and then launched the financial services division in the following year.

  • 1990s

    The late 1990s heralded the start of the third generation of the Prow family’s involvement in the business. Managing Director Charlotte Prow joined in 1998, to be followed by the firm’s Chief Executive, Annabel Prow, in 2002. Product and service innovation continued apace with the launch of a corporate finance specialism in 1997, which continues to deliver valuable cost-savings and insights to the region’s dealmakers.

  • 2000s

    Now century on from the launch of The Wilson Organisation in 1914, the company continues to encourage innovation and reward good ideas. Within the financial services team, 2008 marked the launch of “Flex”, a powerful employee benefit programme and the development of “WRAP”, an investment tool with a unique level of investor control and transparency. Meanwhile, our insurance advisers worked quickly to bring to market a specialist insurance policy for insolvency practitioners.

  • 2010s

    2010 saw the launch of the Midlands Family Business Awards by Wilsons, the UK’s only independent not-for-profit Awards for family businesses. Now in their fifth year, the Awards have raised almost £20,000 for charities supporting families and young people. In 2014 we are celebrating Wilsons’ centenary, a significant milestone in Wilsons’ history.
