It doesn’t have to be complicated
Nobody likes to imagine the future without a loved one.
It’s scary to think about and even harder to talk about. With so many companies offering so many different options, it’s no wonder that people routinely put off making a will.
That’s why Harrison Clark Rickerbys developed Wills at Work, a dedicated will writing service for employees that’s tailored to your existing benefits package. We remove the complications of will writing for staff, providing both them and their employer with confidence that their future is planned and considered.
We introduced a Wills at Work scheme two years ago and have been delighted with the service provided. It has proved to be a popular benefit for employees.
A modern company with a modern solution
We know that each benefit scheme is unique, so we tailor Wills at Work to meet your requirements. We train HR professionals to promote the offering and provide them with whatever marketing materials they need, from printed resources like leaflets and posters to digital materials, including podcasts and webinars. We also provide educational opportunities for staff at benefit fairs and events, or at the office with breakout sessions and lunchtime drop-ins.
If an employee chooses Wills at Work as part of their benefit package, there’s no hard sell, and we don’t visit their home or sign them up to packages they don’t need. Once an employee chooses Wills at Work, we get in touch with them via email, telephone or video conference to complete their will to their satisfaction.
Our service is simple and easy to use. Once an employee chooses Wills at Work, we liaise with them directly to complete their will.
We can provide training on our Wills at Work service to HR professionals so that they are confident in talking about the service with employees.
We produce all the marketing materials you’ll need, from printed resources for the workplace to digital materials that can be viewed at any time, anywhere.
From roadshows and benefit fairs to breakout sessions and lunchtime drop-ins, our team are on hand to complement your financial wellbeing programme.
Wills at Work has provided our clients and our own staff with the opportunity to easily access a high quality will with a highly regarded firm of solicitors. It has taken away the issue of continually putting off making a will as you no longer need to find a reputable firm yourself and the whole process is easy and as streamlined as possible. The service is extremely professional and high quality as you would expect from a top firm of solicitors. I can give no greater compliment than to say I used the service myself and was extremely happy with the whole experience.

Keeping it simple
Wills at Work is easy to use for everyone. If an employee chooses Wills at Work as a benefit, we deal with them directly to ensure a personal and confidential service.
We help HR teams to maximise employee engagement at every turn, allowing you to emphasise the financial wellbeing culture of your company, minimise distress in the event of a death, and expand your excellent benefits provision with additional important legal services.
An agreed fee is charged per employee that takes up the scheme, with no hidden fees or additional charges. This can be incorporated into any existing benefit scheme or platform.
Depending on an employee’s individual circumstance, we offer a Basic or Plus service. An employee may need our Plus service if they have more complex arrangements, such as owning assets outside of England or Wales, or if they have children from a previous relationship.
When someone takes up the scheme, we provide them with:
- An interactive online will questionnaire and dedicated email address
- Draft wills prepared by a qualified solicitor
A 20-minute telephone call or video conference
- Free storage of completed wills and other important documents
- Advice about death in service life assurance benefits, where applicable
- An automatic reminder to review or update a will in five years’ time
If an employee chooses our Plus service, we also provide a review of their inheritance tax position and a longer consultation.
Take the next step
Figures suggest that over 60% of the UK population have not made a will. Our service helps you to encourage staff to take responsibility, and provides peace of mind for both employers and employees should the worst happen.
