We are all aware of the current cost-of-living crisis and we are always looking at ways to support all our employees with their financial wellbeing.
Which is why we are proud to have implemented several new initiatives to provide financial and practical support. As well as two cost-of-living additional payments to help staff who may need it most, Christmas vouchers for all to support with festive costs and launching Perkbox, giving access to thousands of discounts to help individuals make their money go further. We are also pleased to confirm pay rises this year, as another way to show our support for colleagues
Alongside this we have set up some wellbeing webinars with expert advice from Via Vita Health covering topics from managing costs, effective budgeting and other help available.
This support has been well received across the business with feedback including:
- “Optegra is a great place to work for so many reasons – the financial support put in place is another! I’m proud to work for a company that genuinely cares”
- “It’s great to know that the company is always looking at what more can be done to help individuals”
Edna Osborn, HR & Finance Director from Optegra said: “Across our hospital group we value all our colleagues and while we provide ongoing support both in terms of wellbeing and professional development, the financial situation at the moment means we need to ensure that we are helping with the cost of living as far as possible. We are passionate about doing everything we can to ensure our people feel supported.”
