Make your reward scheme more rewarding
A personnel fund is an effective tool for managing, paying and investing bonuses paid to employees.
A Personnel Fund helps a company and its employees get more from the euros used for compensation. Paying performance or profit bonuses into a fund instead of giving them as cash payments results in cost benefits that enable larger bonuses for the employees. The employee also benefits from the returns generated by the fund’s investment operations and from tax benefits when he or she withdraws assets from the fund.
For the employer, Personnel Fund offers means of enhancing the effectiveness of its employee rewards and improving communications on the rewards. Through the fund your company can easily communicate of work targets and the reward criteria. Acviement of targets also becomes more visible. Bigger bonuses increase personnel’s interest in achieving the targets. Employees will remember the benefits of achieving the targets longer when the bonuses are funded and the assets generate returns.
The Personnel Fund is, above all, a flexible tool to help employees save, for example, for their retirement or for other personal goals.

A flexible way to reward
The Personnel Fund is a flexible way to reward employees. It allows the company to transfer its employees’ performance and profit bonuses into the fund at a rate of its choosing. The rewards paid into the fund can be linked to, for example, unit, group or individual criteria, and the bonus items can be paid out both collectively and on the group and individual level.
The fund can be set up by essentially any company with more than 10 employees. It can help boost the effectiveness of an existing performance bonus system. The Personnel Fund is also an excellent employee compensation tool for companies who do not have such a system in place.
