We know that our staff are at the heart of our business and it is only through their efforts as individuals and as a team that we can fulfill our purpose. So rewarding them is huge part of the commitment we make to everyone who works for us.
Our approach to reward is to ensure our people are remunerated based on their capabilities, skills and how they live our values through a competitive total reward package. Total reward means that we not only look to provide a competitive salary, bonus and pension but also ‘the little things’ such as a generous holiday allowance as well as a wide range of benefits to suit you as an employee including discounts on many of the high street stores and company paid insured benefits for those ‘just in case’ moments. Our proposition also extends beyond you and your working week. We want to help support you and/or family in your day to day life as well so many of the benefits available enable you to cover family members too. These are all managed via our award-winning online platform 'Imagine' (2011 winner – Best Benefits Strategy (‘Employee Benefits’ magazine)).
We also believe that opportunities for development, a strong representative employee voice and a supportive culture all form part of our total reward offering to staff. In addition we encourage our employees through local recognition programmes such as team away days and our group wide ‘Making a Difference’ scheme where colleagues can recognise each other, particularly for someone who has truly lived our values, gone the extra mile – or just to say thank you.
