TWO FOR 2020

Wordshop got 2020 under way by launching a new member-facing pensions website for Cummins, and an interactive website for the Co-op’s recognition scheme, where staff can nominate their colleagues across a range of categories.

The website for the Cummins UK Pension Plan replaced Capita’s Hartlink site, following the appointment of Premier Pensions as the new Plan administrator. The site, which provides a link to Premier’s member portal, has separate DC and DB member areas, and a specific retirement planning area to help members navigate this phase of their lives.

The Co-op website has loads of features that support the retailer’s internal ‘Thank you for #BeingCoop Awards’, which are now in their third year. Co-op colleagues can send electronic thank-you cards to other colleagues who’ve gone the extra mile, or print out certificates to give to them in person. They can also nominate colleagues in 12 categories; the online nomination form we built feeds the information directly back to the Rewards team, who then consider who should be shortlisted and whose stories should appear on the website’s Wall of Fame. Anyone who is nominated receives a notification by email, as does their line manager, which completes the circle of thanks.
