The ability to attract and retain talented staff greatly affects an organisation’s capacity to sustain a competitive advantage, as the loss of a key employee to competitors or poor performance of unmotivated employees could lead to a significant erosion of business value.

In today’s job market, employees are increasingly looking for a remuneration package that offers more than just salary.  Lifestyle benefits, salary packaging and employee share plans are just a few of extras that employees seek in the workplace.

An effective remuneration strategy will be a key incentive for your staff.  Offering them a share in the business or more flexible working arrangements, for example, can help to align their personal objectives with those of the business and it needn’t be expensive.

A well planned and tax effective remuneration plan can increase the value that you offer to your employees without increasing the cost to the business.
