Year-round appreciation of our staff

Employee Appreciation Day is the perfect opportunity to recognise our staff as being our charity’s greatest asset and this year, as part of an extensive benefits package, we are rewarding their invaluable contribution to our work with an extra day’s annual leave.

As we start our eighth year as a Living Wage Employer, we believe the additional day’s leave demonstrates our appreciation to our staff, not just today but all year round.

Our benefit package includes a day off for your birthday, along with a personalised card and gift, access to interest free emergency loans, free life assurance and much more.

“We expect our staff to deliver excellence in all that they do,” said Denise, the charity’s HR Lead, “so we want to provide the best staff welfare package we can. As well as our generous holiday entitlement, we have a wide-ranging wellbeing strategy and promote a healthy work life balance. We firmly believe a healthy, happy workforce is best placed to deliver the best service.”

So, although today marks Employee Appreciation Day and allows us to thank everyone with a sweet treat or two, it’s our ongoing mission to show appreciation throughout the year.
