hlw Keeble Hawson has spearheaded a Wills in the Workplace service for Leeds employers to offer staff as part of their benefits package.
Partner and wills and probate specialist, Michele Todd, says more than half of the population does not have a will – with many people wrongly believing that there is no need for one because their family will automatically inherit.
She said: “Ever more dislocated, complicated family relationships and an increasingly litigious society mean that writing a will has taken on an unprecedented importance. This wills writing service enables employers to offer staff the convenience of dealing with the matter during work hours – reinforcing that they appreciate their team by providing another valuable employee benefit.
“To attract and retain high calibre staff, it is vital that companies look beyond traditional reward and recognition schemes and also provide tailored lifestyle packages. The service is proving popular with SMEs and large corporations alike.”
To take account of life changes such as marriage, having children, buying a house or retiring – Wills in the Workplace includes regular reviews and the opportunity for those involved to request revisions in the event of a change in circumstance.
