SUPPORT YOUR EMPLOYEES THROUGH COVID-19

It’s safe to say that things just aren't the same anymore, are they...

The Government is advising that it's still critical we all socially distance ourselves and stay at home as much as possible, to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. This has resulted in a number of businesses closing and a massive alteration to our everyday lives.

And it's not just the risk of contracting the virus that we'll be worrying about either... 

On the one hand, our wellbeing is at risk because we are missing vital human contact with friends and family; and on the other hand, many of us will be worrying about our job and salary security.

These are turbulent times for sure and no one can predict what will happen next or when things might go 'back to normal' - but now is not the time to panic.

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

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.

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?!
