New Employee Benefits Scheme

Loudspeaker announcing employee benefits

I’m delighted to announce the launch of a new Employee Benefits Scheme.

Employee wellbeing does not start and end in the workplace. A whole range of factors come together to determine our overall health and wellbeing as individuals. We are committed to improving the overall wellbeing of our employees.

The new scheme reflects this, and offers a range of benefits and savings designed to help your physical, financial and mental wellbeing. We are delivering the scheme in partnership with Vivup, a company who work with a number of councils to deliver similar schemes.

The Employee Benefits Scheme is part of overall improvements to terms and conditions.

You’ll find a whole host of offers. They include:

  • Home and Electronics – help spread the cost of a huge range of technology and home appliances
  • Bike Shop – bike savings for the whole family
  • Travel and Leisure – access a wide range of holidays and spread the cost via salary with no deposit required
  • Gym Membership – get healthy and spread the cost at a choice of over 3,000 gyms 
  • Lifestyle Savings – access a huge range of discounts across the UK’s major retailers including technology, fashion, supermarkets, travel and much more!
