This month we focus a spotlight on our Employee Benefits partner IHC, and in particular, our man on point Paul Roberts. We asked Paul a number of questions which help to introduce him and tell us what it is like working in IHC Employee Benefits.

What does IHC Employee Benefits do?

IHC offers advice and broking services for employee benefits to the business community. We create value by ensuring benefits are relevant to the business now and future-proof too.

What is your role and how long have you worked there?

I’m a senior consultant. Generally, our expertise and tenure are measured in decades, but for me I’m a relative newbie having worked there for 2 years.

What is an average day like?

The majority of my day is spent working with clients to provide recommendations for change and growth. I do this by having a wide market knowledge and keeping a high level of CPD with insurers – just this week I spent 3.5 CPD hours with a cash plan provider on their new product launching in the Spring and also understanding the effects of GDPR.

What is your favourite part about working for IHC Employee Benefits?

I enjoy designing and delivering a successful renewal project which makes complexity easier for the client. A recent example of consolidation and renegotiation for a manufacturer reduced his costs by 23% over 2 years which is a significant saving.

What exciting developments are planned for this coming year?

IHC already has a flexible working culture and flexible employee contract styles. We are looking to enhance this further and introduce greater flexibility still with the aim of becoming the best in the market.

So, you’ve told us a bit about IHC Employee Benefits and what the company does but what about you.

What things makes you laugh the most?

I really like the Daily Mash TV show – an irreverent take on the weeks news with a serious interjection on the biggest points of the day.

If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day?

Putin, to see if I can answer the question – does power corrupt?

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us

I received an Emeritus Award in 2017 for the EAPA for my exceptional contribution and long service to mental health support.
