Employee Benefits

The OPTESS benefit portal is a communication platform that gives easy access to all of your staff benefits; creating increased awareness, better understanding and improved take up.

Working with employers, we are often able to create substantial savings which can be used to provide a range of benefits that are genuinely useful and appreciated. With everything easily accessible,  The OPTESS benefit portal ensures that people can see and understand their full range of benefits, over and above their basic earnings.

The OPTESS benefit portal includes a market-leading shopping discount platform and a range of voluntary benefits that provide people with big savings on their normal spending. In addition, it showcases any employer-provided benefits, such as the  group life assurance and medical cover.

Our Message to You

Times are changing.

Your responsibilities are changing.

What it means to be an employer is changing, constantly.

We know you know this already, but have you ever actually stopped to think about how many responsibilities you have as an employer, besides the usual operating of your business? How much you have to do, just to stay on top of your duties?

In an ever-developing society, the list of responsibilities for a business continues to grow. As an employer, your duty is not only to pay your staff, but to protect them, take care of them and treat them fairly. We know how important it is to keep up with these duties, but we also know how hard it can be for you to balance these responsibilities with the ongoing running of their business. With business dynamics constantly in a state of flux, we know that the pressures of running a business can be huge.

As you know, we’ve been supporting you with your auto-enrolment for some time. But we wanted to go further. We’ve been hearing about your needs. After all, to talk about one employer responsibility is to talk about all of them and since we made ‘Supporting Employers’ our goal, we knew we needed to do more.

You’ve been talking…

                …so we’ve been listening.

We are very proud to announce


At OPTESS, our goal will be to provide you with all the tools you need to fulfil your employer responsibilities, leaving you to get on with the important stuff – running your business.

Now don’t worry, we’ll still be continuing with all our auto-enrolment support. Auto-enrolment is, and will always be, a key part of what we do (we hope you saw our recent communication about the updates we’re currently making to Root).  In addition to this, we will be providing you with a raft of new services, all designed to help you with the ongoing running of your business. These services are designed around your feedback, everything you’ve told us about the frustrations of being an employer in the UK. Over the next few months, we’ll be updating you on our new services, so stay tuned for more news.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the support you have given us. It is only through your feedback and support that our new venture has been made possible. We hope to receive your continued support and that you will be as excited by our new services as we are. If you have any immediate questions or concerns, please let us know on 0203 633 6229 or [email protected].  

We’ll be in touch again soon.

Kind Regards,
