Manchester, UK - 16th April, 2007 - Kellogg, the world's leading producer of cereal and convenience foods, has selected Early Years Vouchers Ltd, one of the UK's leading childcare allowance organisations, to implement its nationwide UK voucher scheme for its employees. The scheme is a major part of the Kellogg business' benefits programme, allowing it to enhance its workforce's remuneration packages at no cost, and enabling parents to make significant cost savings on childcare.
After an extensive study of the market, Kellogg chose to implement EYVL's childcare scheme for its ease-of-use and for the personable 'help' service that its employees and HR department staff receive when enquiring about an issue. EYVL prepares and handles the majority of the paperwork and salary amendments for the HR department - with no set-up charges, monthly fees or tie-in clauses. The scheme delivers referenced payments that can easily be trackable through the EYVL website that enables Kellogg’s parent workforce to efficiently manage its childcare voucher benefit.
"The fact that both parents can benefit from EYVL's childcare voucher scheme has definitely been a big positive for our employees. We are seeing an equal share of Mums and Dads taking up the opportunity to make significant cost savings - over £1,195.56 at times!" comments Tom Stevenson, HR Manager, Total Compensation UK & ROI, Kellogg.
"EYVL sets itself apart from other childcare allowance organisations by providing a truly personable service - something you can experience by just calling them. You are referred to by name, as an individual and not as a number routed through a call centre," continued Tom Stevenson. "EYVL's scheme is a 'no-brainer' for us. It enables us to enhance our employees' remuneration packages at no extra cost to the business which in turn benefits the company by aiding staff retention and attracting new employees. The feedback we've received has been tremendous and has exceeded all our expectations."
Amanda Ward, Director of Early Years Vouchers Ltd, added: "We are delighted to have been selected by Kellogg to provide its employees with a personable childcare voucher scheme. As always, EYVL is committed to helping Kellogg provide an attractive benefit programme for its employees, enhancing its value proposition for working Mums and Dads."
The EYVL childcare voucher scheme is a straight-forward approach that is easily implemented by organisations of any size - from national companies with staff of thousands to small businesses with only two or three employees. EYVL's vouchers can be used by parents to pay for a very wide range of childcare help such as nurseries, child minders, nannies as well as extra-curricular activities such as breakfast, after-school and holiday clubs.
