Sunsuper helping your business and employees

By Joshua van Gestel

At our annual employer briefing series during May and June we presented to nearly 400 employer representatives, across eight locations, on topics including the basics of single touch payroll, announcements in the Federal Budget and the latest statistics on employee wellbeing.

Don’t worry if you couldn’t make it to one of this year’s briefings though. Here are the key points and tips from each of our speakers.

Are your employees well?

Did you know that 8 out of 10 employees consider the wellbeing benefits that an employer offers as important when looking for a new job?

In particular, employees consider carer’s leave, compassionate leave, salary packaging, extra super contributions, and flu vaccinations to be the top five benefits an employer can offer.

The benefits you offer to your employees, including those provided through your chosen super fund, are vital in assisting you in supporting your employees’ financial, physical and mental wellbeing.

Find out more about the benefits Sunsuper can offer to your employees.

Investing for our members’ future

The way your employees’ superannuation is invested can make a huge difference to their retirement outcomes. It is important that you consider:

  • Does your chosen super fund have a track record of providing solid competitive investment performance?
  • Does your chosen super fund have the right structures in place, access to the right assets and best investment managers, and a focus on exceptional value for money?

Super rates and thresholds have changed for the new financial year

Helping Australians in need

Sunsuper’s Dreams for a Better World grants program is our way to give back and help make a difference in communities all around Australia. Through the program, we support grassroots causes and their dreams to improve the lives of other Australians, and offer members, clients and employees a chance to do something meaningful in their community.

Since 2011, we’ve awarded more than 100 grants to causes that support disadvantaged young people and women, people with disabilities, the homeless, animals, and the environment and created employment and education opportunities  for Australians in need.

For the first time this year, businesses with up to 200 employees can also apply for a share of the grant pool. Grants will be awarded to help three businesses tackle a social issue that’s affecting their community such as youth unemployment, or to help boost their local economy or protect the environment.
