The article announces the launch of a flexible benefit scheme by energy firm E.ON, giving employees more power over their own finances and holiday options. According to senior specialist for employee benefits Art Donaldson, a one-size fits all approach to benefits packages was not cost effective and did not recognize each employee's individual interests. He said the new scheme gave staff the opportunity to buy and sell a week's holiday and to choose between options such as travel and life insurance.
