Encouraged by a favorable legislative framework in many countries, employee benefits allow public authorities to effectively implement social policies, boost economic attractiveness and fight against the informal economy.
For companies, these benefits promote employee loyalty by maximizing the in-kind portion of human resources policies.
For employees, they offer additional purchasing power when used within a network of Edenred-affiliated merchants.
For their part, these merchants have access to a pool of qualified consumers who provide them with additional revenue.
Employee benefits - Meal and food Meal and food
Ticket Restaurant®, Edenred's flagship solution launched in 1962 in the French market, allows employees to purchase meals at the affiliated establishment of their choice. It is a fundamental tool in the corporate landscape which has been updated and adapted to the economic, social and political contexts of the 33 countries in which it is currently used. By switching from paper to card format, Edenred's Ticket Restaurant® solution is becoming a tool that allows users, companies and merchants to share and communicate about their needs and interests. New services are being added, such as mobile applications and dedicated websites (geolocation of restaurants, real-time balance tracking, benefit and discount clubs, etc.). The only issuer in the French market that allows users to pay for lunch via Apple Pay, Edenred is also leading the way in mobile payment.
Developed in emerging markets, Ticket Alimentación can be used by employees' families to pay for groceries in supermarkets and neighborhood stores.
The aim of NutriSavings, an online platform launched in the United States in 2012, is to better inform employees about the nutritional quality of their purchases and encourage them to eat a balanced diet thanks to a rewards system. Another benefit is a reduction in healthcare costs paid by US companies.
