Employee Choice

The Birch Tree is here to support you in giving more choices to your employees.

This lets them fulfill their own needs and expectations, by granting them the opportunity to spend their benefits and financial wellbeing budget individually.

Their different needs are based on country, age group, family status and more, combined with the digital journey with consumer grade solutions added to the individual expectations. This makes it a real challenge to create and deliver customer satisfaction in this area.

We will work with you to discover what your employees are expecting, and how to provide this to them. All in an optimized and customer-friendly way. Ensuring it is fit for purpose and country focused.

Our expertise will guide you in delivering visibility, governance and cost optimization to your business. As these are real challenges in today’s worlds, we will help you:

  • Keeping an overview and visibility of your company’s employee benefits around the world

  • Ensuring governance of the solutions you provide, thereby keeping costs under control

Care programs and ESG

The Birch Tree can assist you in finding solutions to deliver sustainability, purpose and social engagement. This will underline your Corporate Social Responsibility and your ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) agenda. This with a strong focus on the S for Social.

As the need for social engagement by businesses becomes ever more apparent, the expectations from external stakeholders to your company in this area will steadily rise. More and more investors expect social engagement. The same is the case with shareholders, public authorities, customers and potential new employees.

We will work with you to define your priorities in this field, to find solutions which will meet these expectations and support your implementation.
