The article reports on the expansion of the human resources (HR) team at Kellogg's UK due to the changing business environment in Great Britain, according HR director Jacqueline Grainger. New business pressures included increasing competition from niche brands, supermarket price wars and a trend towards snacking on the go rather than eating breakfast at home. Grainger said that flexible benefits were essential to attract and retain employees who were no longer simply interested in a salary and a bonus.
