Hi Personio Community!


Hoping you can help me...


We’re carrying out a research / benchmarking exercise in relation to our employee benefits and want to understand what other similar sized start-ups in the UK are offering to their employees. We’re particularly interested in gathering info about what other start ups are offering in regard to adoption, maternity and paternity pay.


Our business is still in its infancy but is quickly growing. We now have almost 200 employees, some of them with 2 years service.


We’re hoping to gather the following info:

  • name of the company / sector
  • number of employees
  • what benefits do you offer?
  • do you offer enhanced maternity / adoption / paternity pay?
  • if you do offer enhanced pay, what do you offer your employees?
  • what is the eligibility criteria?


Thank you in advance for your help!

Thanks for your message and tips! It’s my first time posting :see_no_evil: so this is really helpful.
