Company to expand its benefits package in keeping with new working trends and living patterns
HOPE Construction Materials have reaffirmed their commitment to staff satisfaction and well-being with the announcement of further additions to an already extensive staff benefits package for the company’s 900 strong UK-wide workforce.
Comprising a blend of flexible, traditional and ‘salary sacrificing’ benefits, Hope’s ‘Rewarding our Colleagues’ programme will see new staff benefits being added continually in keeping with new working trends and living patterns, including additional holidays, cycle-to-work scheme, pension benefits, and sabbatical and charity work breaks.
The company, which celebrated its second birthday in January this year, refers to its employees as ‘colleagues’ to underline a ‘one-team’ culture, the importance of relationships, and the fact that everybody has a contribution to make to the company’s success.
However, as every individual’s needs are different, staff are being offered the chance to hand-pick benefits options best suited to them from an extensive list, dependent on what is most important to them.
Current employee Kevin Croxton, a mobile fitter based in Southampton, said: ‘Among the many things that attracted me to Hope was a benefits package that is flexible for everyone, not just the privileged few. Being able to pick exactly what benefits I want from a long list is really exciting and news that more will constantly be added is just fantastic.’
Jim Verity, human resources director at Hope Construction Materials, said: ‘We’re committed to investing in our people and are proud of our attractive new benefits package, which allows employees to choose the benefits that suit them and their individual needs. We believe that by giving colleagues the chance to select the ones that mean the most to them, they are much more likely to be happy in their job.’
