Wellbeing initiatives

We understand that wellbeing is a complex blend of the physical, psychological, social and relationship aspects of our employees’ working lives, so a series of initiatives are in place and available to our employees. These include:

  • Reward schemes including flexible benefits, charity work, staff discounts and health plans
  • Enhanced bereavement and sick leave
  • Flexible working including home working
  • Holiday purchase scheme
  • Bike to work scheme

We are pleased to hold OHSAS18001 accreditation, but we also recognise that managers and employees are vital to our health and safety. We believe strongly that everyone has a legal duty to co-operate in safety related matters and we make compliance with our safety procedures a condition of employment for everyone.
