Flexible working is getting more and more popular, so make sure you’re ahead of the curve by putting the focus on workplace wellbeing with an annual leave purchase scheme – one that puts employees in control of their work-life balance.
It really does do just what it says on the tin – your employees can purchase additional days off straight from their salary, giving people the time off that they need, making happy, healthy employees with a great work-life balance – all while you save on your wage bill. Your employees, meanwhile, spread their reduced salary over a whole year, only affecting their salary a little every month.
Lots of clients have found that annual leave purchase schemes provide huge annual savings which help to fund other benefits through reduced wage bills and National Insurance payments, making it a fantastic option to give to their employees.
Leave the admin to us – we run every aspect of your annual leave purchase scheme for you, and use our employee engagement experience to boost take-up, maximising the money you save. You don’t need to do anything beyond approving the requests, and forwarding the reports from our platform onto your payroll.
Employees use their salary to purchase extra holiday days – so your wage bill comes down, and your National Insurance contributions fall with it.
What good is an annual leave purchase programme if no one's using it? We give you a full communications plan, including poster and email campaigns, to boost take up and maximise savings.

Annual Leave Purchase
What annual leave purchase can do for you
Yes, it’ll save you money – but that’s far from the only reason to offer employee benefits like annual leave purchase. Flexible working and annual leave arrangements are becoming more and more of a dealbreaker for people seeking a career with a healthy work-life balance, making it a great tool for attracting and retaining the very best talent.
Time off work when it matters most is really important for employee wellbeing, too. All in all, it helps contribute to a culture that really values employees, recognising that they have a life outside of work and giving them everything they need to live it to the fullest. Find out more about the positive outcomes we can help you achieve through an employee benefit programme that includes annual leave purchase.
When we say engagement, we really mean happiness. Employees that are happy at work feel more loyal, do more, care more, do better, and stay with you for longer. It's that simple.
Attracting and Retaining Talent
People are changing jobs more than ever before, so if you want to attract new talent and keep it around, having an engaged and happy workforce is more important now than ever. It’s what makes you more than just the employer people settle for.
Growing a Positive Workplace Culture
There's no shortcut to a great workplace culture. One that makes a real difference to the employee experience every single day. It's not about table football and casual Fridays - it's more than that. We don't do gimmicks, we just take who you are and make it better.
