How to enroll your Team Member in Spain into a local benefits package

You can enroll your team into local benefits in Spain from the hiring flow or from the in-app benefits flow. 

Please note employees who do not yet have an NIE or NIF number cannot be enrolled in health and social benefits. 

From the hiring flow:

  1. After you fill out the compensation details, you will be taken to the Benefits section of the hiring form.
  2. Select a benefits package based on your company’s benefits strategy. Here's some recommendations on which to choose:
    • Competitive - if you want to offer benefits that most local employers in that specific country offer and want to remain competitive. 
    • Best-in-class - if you want to offer premium benefits that set you apart. 
    • Essential - to cover only the most basic statutory benefits required in Spain. We recommend opting for one of the two other tiers to provide a competitive employment package.

      To remain non-discriminatory, it is important to enroll all of your Team Members into the same benefits package.

  3. You can also choose coverage for dependents and health add-ons on top of your package. The add-ons include health benefits provided by Allianz.
  4. Make a selection to see the total estimated monthly costs. 

From the benefits flow:

    1. Click People > Benefits from the left menu in your Oyster account.benefitsflow1.png
    2. On the Benefits page, review the list of engaged Team Members and their benefits enrollment status. Click Enroll benefits to enroll a Team Member into benefits.
    3. The Request Benefits Enrollment page opens. Select a plan.

      Local benefits plan options are listed for India, Poland, United States, Canada, and global benefits provider Allianz for other countries.

    4. Click Send request. Wait for the success message to appear.benefitsflow4.png
    5. The Oyster support team will begin the enrollment process along with the benefits vendors.
