Staff benefits and wellbeing update

04 Nov 2021

Our new Employee Assistance Programme has launched and a new Home and Tech launches on the 8th November.

Employee Assistance Programme

The new Employee Assistance Programme is now live. This enables you to talk in confidence with qualified counsellors and advisors, as well as access to a range of online resources to support your health and wellbeing. The new service will cover emotional and physical health, mental health, relationships, managing stress and anxiety, money issues and more.

New Home & Tech Scheme

We’re delighted to announce that our exciting NEW Home and Electronics employee benefit is launching on Monday 8th November. With a wide range of products available from both John Lewis & Partners and Currys, you’ll soon have access to thousands of home and technology must-haves! 

Whether you want to upgrade a home appliance, spruce up your space with new DIY tools or start getting organised for the festive season, your Home and Electronics employee benefit makes it more manageable by enabling you to spread the cost of items through monthly salary reductions.

To access this benefit and the full range of lifestyle benefits you’ll need to be registered on our Vivup benefits website, so if you haven’t yet done so register now at . You will need to enter your employee/payroll number when registering for the first time.  You can find this on your payslip online or staff ID card.
