Recruitment and training company Spring, formerly known as CRT, has done a deal with insurer Legal and General to give its contract workers employment benefits similar to those of full time staff.
CRT has tried to keep contractors on its books long term by offering more services to keep them happy, rather than just filling client vacancies. Under its new name, the company is taking the further steps it has promised for a while to build contractor agency relationships.
It will offer its temporary and contract workforce flexible benefit packages, including pension, life assurance or mortgage plans. Although it will not be contributing to the scheme, L&G's commissions will be returned to members via free training. The scheme will be optional and done through Legal and General.
"We see the availability of good value financial products as a real incentive for temporary workers and contractors," said chief executive of Spring, Karl Chapman.
