Marc Harris of BusinessTV talks with Damian Stancombe of Barnett Waddingham about Employee Benefits Communication. They discuss the impact Employee Wellbeing has on business performance and that ‘getting it right’ requires a deeper approach than merely ticking boxes. Damian explains Barnett Waddingham’s uniquely comprehensive approach which extends to using their own in-house creative agency, DrumRoll, to create bespoke employee communication campaigns.
