Introducing weConnect – a new employee benefits vision

We are excited to launch our new employee benefits vision weConnect. weConnect is driven by a deep understanding of the need for work/life balance, social connection and purposeful collaboration.

weConnect Back-to-Base (B2B) will come into full effect in January 2022, when everyone is back in the office on designated days. weConnect will support social connection and purpose driven collaboration through team meetings, project updates, client workshops, team celebrations and career conversations.

weConnect B2B lunches will be provided in January & February and the team will celebrate each month at the Company Stand-up and famous Friday night food and drinks.

“I am proud to be sharing this news with our team. Our people are our top priority, and providing them with real work/life balance opportunities and the chance to reconnect with colleagues face to face will result in a happy and productive workforce.”

Victoria Horner, Head of People & Culture.

Unico’s other employee benefits have also had a huge transformation. We knew that the pandemic was going to impact the future of work, so we asked our team what they wanted, what they valued and how they envisioned the future. Goodbye to the 5-day slog at the office –  hello, to more balance, wellness, and connection.

“Our upgraded benefits reflect how we are working and collaborating. I’m delighted to give our team more choice and the freedom to decide what benefits suit them.”

John Rowland, Managing Director

New perks

The complimentary public transport benefit has taken a sidestep as we provide our team with annual employee benefits of choice focused on health, wellness, and travel. The benefit is eligible for qualified expenses such as fitness classes, team sports, sports equipment, private health and travel card contributions.

Our team will also receive a home office allowance enabling them to create a safe and ergonomic environment.

Parental Leave

Team members now have the flexibility to choose between paid parental leave or employer sponsored childcare, and secondary carers will now receive paid leave and extended leave options.

Check out all of our new and improved employee benefits, including paid partner certifications, salary sacrifice, salary continuance, and social responsibility.
