Hope Construction Materials has reaffirmed its commitment to staff satisfaction and wellbeing by announcing further additions to its already extensive staff benefits package for its 900 strong UK-wide workforce.
Comprising a blend of flexible, traditional and ‘salary sacrificing’ benefits, the offering comes as Hope continues to grow its dynamic workforce to meet the demand for its products – cement, concrete and aggregates.
The company – which celebrated their second birthday in January – refers to 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.
Hope’s ‘Rewarding our Colleagues’ programme will see new staff benefits being added continually in keeping with new working trends or living patterns, including additional holiday, cycle-to-work scheme, pension benefits, and sabbatical and charity work breaks.
As every individual’s needs are different, Hope’s staff are being offered the chance to hand pick benefits options best suited to them from an extensive list, dependent on what’s important to them.
Hope recently announced a recruitment drive for 30 additional HGV drivers and three further apprentices. Along with creating new career opportunities, Hope is keen to ensure that its existing workforce is amongst the best looked after in the industry.
Current Hope employee, Kevin Croxton, a mobile fitter based at 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”.
