New Business Start Up

The Challenge

The directors wanted to attract the best talent in their sector to their newly formed professional creative firm. They had plans for rapid international expansion and needed help to design an employee benefits package that could compete with larger, more established organisations. The benefits needed to be easily communicated to employees worldwide.

Our Approach

We were asked to:

We demonstrated Lightbox Flex to the company. Lightbox Flex is an online employee benefits platform which allows easy communication with employees and is a resource of information on the benefits. The company loved it and we branded the software to fit the company’s brand guidelines.

The Outcome

We implemented an attractive, cost-effective employee benefits package for the company that included life cover, income protection, private medical insurance and a discounted shopping scheme.

The outsourced employee benefits administration that we provide has freed up senior staff time to concentrate on business strategy and recruitment. Annual governance meetings ensure that the directors have peace of mind that all of the compliance and governance aspects of their benefits package are being looked after.

Lightbox Flex has allowed the directors to communicate easily with their employees about their benefits and has made it easy for the employees to understand and appreciate them.


We are proud to have helped this award-winning international business get started. The company has grown, opening offices in Asia and the Middle East. They have a record number of future headline-grabbing projects lined up both here and abroad – a great success story for Scotland.
