The Challenge 

The Metropolitan Police needed to implement and deliver a combined employee benefits programme easily accessible to its entire workforce. Not only did it need to provide a benefits platform for its existing staff but with the modernisation of workforces, it needed to be more competitive and attractive to potential recruits. The main focus was to provide an efficient interactive solution that provided clear benefits for the Metropolitan Police whilst also delivering significant financial and lifestyle benefits for its officers and wider staff.

The Solution 

Xexec worked with the Metropolitan Police to incorporate a bespoke lifestyle discounts product under the banner “Met Rewards”. Since its launch in 2013, Metropolitan Police officers and staff have been able to access exclusive discounts and benefits at over 3000 vendors offering lifestyle discounts at all major supermarkets, department stores, fashion brands electricals, computing and DIY brands. 

Additionally, Xexec offered access to its unique Travel and Ticket Concierge, a bespoke service that takes the stress out of booking a holiday and offers great benefits and discounts including upgrades and lounge access. On top of that, the ticket service enables access to tickets to sold-out events and exclusive performances at the UKs most popular entertainment and sporting venues. 

Metropolitan Police employees are also offered salary sacrifice benefits, as well as discounted goods and services via one online managed platform which include childcare vouchers, health screening services and cycle-to-work.

The Outcome 
The Xexec / Metropolitan Police “Met Rewards” offering has been a great success, and since its launch in 2013 there has been extremely high levels of engagement amongst its staff. In addition, this streamlined approach to benefits has seen the administration burden on Human Resources lifted, increasing efficiency and reducing overall costs. However, more importantly it has delivered meaningful and valuable benefits to the workforce.
