What are Contribution Schemes?

Employer contribution schemes provide various ways for organizations to subsidize the cost of benefits offered to their employees. 


How do contribution schemes work?

Employers usually allocate a certain percentage, or flat payment towards an employee’s insurance premiums. These can vary depending on the employment type of employee (ie Full-time, part-time) or their level within the organization (ie Director and above).
