Cancer Research UK scooped the prize for 'Most Effective Use of a Voluntary Benefits Plan' at the 2011 Employee Benefits Awards, which took place at the HAC in London last week.
Celebrating the best in benefits, the annual awards ceremony was this year hosted by Stephen Mangan on behalf of Employee Benefits magazine.
Over 170 entries were submitted this year from across the UK, from which expert judges selected 21 winners across various categories representing different elements of the employee benefits industry.
George Farrow, Client Service Delivery Director at Asperity Employee Benefits, which provides Cancer Research's voluntary benefits programme, said: "Everyone at Asperity is delighted that Cancer Research has achieved this award at its first attempt. We know that we have a tried and tested winning proposition in the employee benefits market. But successful delivery always depends upon the proactive involvement of a committed HR team. In that respect Jane Vivier and her team went the extra mile with a clearly articulated vision for addressing the disparate needs of employee groups ranging from senior citizens operating in high street shops to men and women in white coats in research labs. Then delivering that vision with strong leadership to achieve stunning results. It has been an enormous pleasure working in partnership with the Cancer Research team."
Asperity clients McDonald's, BskyB and DB Schenker were all runners up for the same award.
