Northampton and Milton Keynes based solicitors, Franklins, has launched an innovative benefits and recognition platform for its employees.
The new mobile platform, provided by local consultancy, Touchpoint Employee Benefits, has been rolled out to all Franklins’ staff and is designed to promote further employee engagement and happiness across the business and enhance the firm’s recognition rich culture.
Franklins is one of the most technologically advanced solicitors in the country backed by over 30 years of experience. Franklins was established in 1982 and since then has grown to be a well-respected firm occupying offices in both Central Milton Keynes and Northampton employing over 100 staff delivering both personal and commercial legal services.
As a local employer and recruiter, Franklins recognises that people are motivated not only by a good income but also by access to the right choice of perks and benefits. They understand that how their people feel about working for their firm and being part of their working environment is important.
Franklins partnered with employee benefits and engagement consultancy, Touchpoint, to create an engaging benefits and recognition platform for its people. A one stop shop to inspire a happier, healthier working environment via a uniquely branded platform. Touchpoint’s services now provide Franklins’ employees with a single point of access to existing benefits, engagement tools, recognition hub, a health plan, wellbeing resources, online learning plus retail and leisure discounts.
The new platform is also accessible via a Franklins-branded mobile optimised web app, meaning that employees can access their benefits anytime, anyplace - for example, the top food, drink, travel, entertainment, cinema and gym discounts to save money outside of work.
The Recognition Hub within the platform will enable Franklins to further enhance a recognition rich culture. Employees can be recognised on a peer-to-peer, manager to employee or customer to employee basis and this is shared on the platform’s social media style feed for all staff to see. This innovative online tool enables staff to recognise employee contributions and behaviours which align with Franklins' core values: Trust, Passion, Excellence and United.
Simon Long, Managing Partner at Franklins commented: ‘We are very excited and encouraged by the whole engagement with Touchpoint and how this is going to add to our overall offering for our employees – both present and future. It also backs up our firm’s core values and it’s about further investing and engaging with our people.’
Nigel Brittle, Managing Director at Touchpoint added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Franklins to help further develop their employee experience and now embed this solution as part of their culture. Our platform offers a single point of access to all benefits and employee services in one place and it’s great to see Franklins boosting their employee value proposition in this way.”
