Fuller’s launches new health benefits for team
Fuller’s has launched a new healthcare benefit as part of a package of improvements.
Fuller, Smith and Turner has launched a new healthcare benefit as part of a package of improvements to its employee pay and benefits.
Team members from kitchen porters to deputy managers across Fuller’s managed pubs and hotels will benefit from the scheme, which provides support for routine medical treatment, a virtual GP service, help with optician costs, dental plans, access to alternative and complementary therapies, and contributions to prescription costs.
General managers and head chefs at Fuller’s are already covered under Fuller’s existing private medical insurance, but the new scheme ensures that all pub and hotel team members, who have been with the company for at least 12 months, have access to a healthcare benefit.
The benefit in kind tax has also been absorbed by Fuller’s to ensure the new scheme is totally free for its team members. Dependent children are automatically covered and partners can be added at the team member’s own cost.
“This new health benefit is, I believe, industry leading," says Dawn Browne, people and talent director at Fuller’s. "It means that every one of our team members with over a year’s service, in every part of the company, now has access to a medical benefit. That is something that we are really proud of."
