SUPPORT YOUR EMPLOYEES THROUGH COVID-19

Navigating through the easing of restrictions

Although the easing of restrictions are joy to many of us, readjusting back to semi-normal life and the constant uncertainty undoubtedly had an impact on us all.

Previous lockdowns have caused many businesses to close down and life has drastically changed for many of us, which is a big risk to our wellbeing. 

‘Normality’ is slowly beginning to return, and with this constant change and readjustment, it's important to find ways to cope.

Scroll down and take a look at how Sodexo can support you and your employees through the pandemic.

HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR EMPLOYEES

Our top pics for providing additional support to your employees both during, and after, the pandemic. Take a look:

CYCLE TO WORK SCHEMES

Help your employees avoid public transport during the pandemic.

Our links with the UK’s biggest and best bike retailers means your employees can get the perfect bike for their morning commute, or their weekend adventure.

Whether it’s a mountain bike, a BMX or an electric cycle, your employees can get the bike they really want and save up to 42% in tax and NI contributions.

Plus, as an employer, you’ll save up to 13.8% on National Insurance payments thanks to the salary sacrifice arrangement. Nice right?!

EMPLOYEE DISCOUNTS

Helping salaries to stretch further on everyday spends.

At Sodexo we can offer a wide range of exclusive discounts to help your employees salaries stretch further. From discounts on the weekly supermarket shop to online retailers - it's all here on our award-winning Employee Benefits Platform!

With many businesses needing to place their employees on extended leave or reduced hours, offering these types of money-saving benefits not only help make significant savings for your people, but also helps support their financial wellbeing.

We have been partnered with Sodexo Engage for almost three years, using them to provide our staff with an employee benefits platform that includes corporate discounts, cycle to work and health cash plans. During COVID-19 we have seen a huge increase in those registering for the platform, with particular interest in the financial benefit offered by the discounts on major retailers. Our account manager is proactive and speedily resolves any issues raised by our staff. Over the coming months, we plan to introduce additional benefits offered by Sodexo Engage that will further support our staff and add to their total reward package as employees of Durham University.
