Larking Gowen launches comprehensive benefits package

Following 12 months of research, Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors, Larking Gowen, has launched a new market-leading benefits package for its employees.

Regular discussions with employee representatives, bench-marking, staff surveys and market research, resulted in the new package being introduced.  The new benefits include; enhanced maternity, adoption and paternity pay, the introduction of a range of agile working practices, a new career break scheme and full salary exchange options.

Additional benefits include; improved compassionate leave, protection from financial hardship in the event of serious illness or accident, travel to work discounts and loans for public transport.

The new benefits package demonstrates the firm’s ongoing commitment to the total wellbeing of employees and supports the comprehensive programme of wellbeing support already in place.

Jon Woolston, Managing Partner, said: “At Larking Gowen, our core value is ‘Passion for our People’ because we know that our business will only succeed through them. This is why we have developed this comprehensive new benefits package, based very much on employee feedback.

“We want to be an employer of choice for our existing and future employees and we believe that our new benefits package is an excellent offer that helps us to achieve this goal.”

In addition to the new package, the firm has simplified its Human Resources policies and reduced them in number significantly, allowing freedom for managers to make decisions to support their people.

Jon added: “We wanted to make it simpler for our managers to manage, and we wanted to give more freedom to the people who are running our teams. This change demonstrates our trust and confidence in our managers and our employees.”
