What are employee benefits?
These are extra perks an organisation offers employees on top of their remuneration packages. Sometimes employee benefits are as simple as free coffee and fruit in the morning and can expand to include exclusive access to offers and benefits only accessible to staff members. Some other common employee benefits an organisation may offer might be discounted gym memberships, employee reward and recognitions schemes, etc.
As a company, our mission is to make employment more rewarding and for everyone. In line with that goal, we have leveraged the buying power of all employees managed on Employment Hero to provide our customer's with access to exclusive offers and discounts typically only available to larger companies. And we make these easily available to your employees via the Benefits portal on our HR platform.

How does Employment Hero offer benefits?
Employment Hero has combined the power of technology and the buying power of thousands of employers to give you and your team one of the world’s best employee benefits packages — for free.
Platform offers range from discounted retail products and health insurance through to leading literacy and education material such as guides to simple savings and other financial topics.
What is InstaPay?
InstaPay allows employees to access a portion of their earned wages before their official pay day, if your organisation uses our Employment Hero payroll platform. The amount an employee can access per week is up to $250 approved earned but unpaid wages.
InstaPay requires no extra payroll processing steps for your payroll admins. However, your payroll admins may be interested in the following guide as it outlines how InstaPay deductions flow through your payroll platform and appear on ABA files when processing an employee's pay.
What is Wellness?
Wellness is a content hub full of education, advice, and tools to help employees become better financially, physically and mentally.
Did you know...
Employees can access benefits on the desktop as well as the Employment Hero mobile app. This makes it easier for employees to more easily redeem and access benefits on-the-go. For example, say an employee is the shops and needs pull up a supermarket voucher discount code they have redeemed from the Benefits shop. This employee can access their voucher (or even purchase a new one) in seconds.
InstaPay is also accessible only on the Employment Hero mobile app.
Communicating benefits with staff
Now that you know what benefits and wellness content is available to your employees through Employment Hero, now is a great time to remind staff what’s on offer with a quick announcement on the Company Feed (Mobile/Desktop).
