Introducing Concert,
a Buck company

We’re bringing our ability to design, develop, and deliver outstanding engagement solutions to a wider world.

We know it’s a big, complex world out there so at Concert, a Buck company, we like to change how people think and act by refining that complexity. We’re good at it too – providing pensions and employee benefit communications services to over three million employees and plan members.

As the challenges faced by our clients evolve and develop, so must we. As part of the Buck family we can broaden our offering and bring new technologies to bear more quickly – combining our ‘boutique’ style with real scale and our creative drive with best-in-class technical thinking.

We’ve recently welcomed Caburn Hope, a strategic employee communications agency, into the fold. The addition of Caburn Hope complements and amplifies our current capabilities by strengthening our employee communications offering. Our shared approach, providing tech-enabled, personalised solutions, means our new full-service, employee communications practice in the U.K. will have a positive impact across the entire member and employee experience.

We’re still Concert. But with the addition of Caburn Hope – and as part of Buck -- we’re better.

In the event of the death of an employee without a nomination form, delays, complications and the potential for benefits to go to the estate (potentially incurring tax) can all arise. HR teams can take some simple steps to provide employees with peace of mind that their next of kin will be provided for.
