If your employer or recruitment agency has suggested that you become employed through Originem, then you’re probably wondering, ‘what’s in it for me?” Well, the answer to that question is an awful lot. Because by becoming an Originem employee, you get the best of both worlds. The tax reliefs available of being employed by a third party plus all the benefits (and then some) of permanent employment.
More pay in your pocket
First off, you stand to increase your take home pay and not by a piddling amount. Depending on your rate of pay and hours worked, this can run into hundreds, not tens, of pounds each month. How so? As an employee of Originem, you are entitled to offset your business expenses – stuff like mileage and subsistence – against your taxable pay.
When you’re employed through Originem, you also benefit from a user -friendly online portal to manage all your expenses and administration. You can upload timesheets, log your expenses and download payslips. And as it’s all fully automated, it results in fast and efficient payroll, meaning your hard-earned pay lands in your bank account pdq. Plus, on the rare occasions there’s a problem, we’ve friendly, helpful, informed payroll staff available at the end of the phone to answer any queries you have.View our portal
Full employment rights
As an Originem employee, you also remain entitled to full employment rights. Which, in a nutshell, means that we honour your entitlements to things like sick pay, parental leave and holiday pay. Yet you can claim additional tax reliefs which you wouldn’t get as a normal PAYE employee at your place of work or recruitment agency.Employee rewards
Depending on the size and structure of your company, one of the things you might miss is having someone to turn to with work-related or personnel issues. As an Originem employee, you also can speak to our HR team 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, Perhaps you want to understand where you stand if your contract is terminated early or perhaps you have a grievance with a work colleague (there’s always one!) Whatever it is, our HR team is just on the end of a phone, ready, willing and able to help and advise you.
I have been incredibly impressed on a number of matters. Originem’s efficiency and customer service is of an incredibly high standard, the candidate portal is user friendly and it is a matter of minutes to submit all relevant information. I cannot praise Originem highly enough and I would recommend their services.
