To be the best, we know we must employ the best and support each individual with industry-leading training, professional development and cutting-edge technology and procedures.
We also choose to pay our staff upper quartile salaries, which has seen us recognised by the National Living Wage Foundation. (And we even pay on time – something we understand from employees can be rare in the industry!).
Now we’ve gone one step further and we’re delighted to announce the introduction of our new employee benefits reward scheme.
Our new VIP (Very Important Perks) scheme delivers benefits ranging from local offers and discounts, to medical care and support, and access to expert advice services.
The scheme is backed by employee engagement specialist Centralus and has the potential to help employees achieve average annual savings of £1,200, in areas such as shopping, travelling and dining out.
Accessible anytime via a smart phone, the VIP platform increases the savings every time it is used. Vouchers provide discounts for a wide range of high street and online brands, from iTunes to Asda, and Vision Express to Waitrose.
Local offers can be located using GPS, making it easy to find outlets nearby that are part of the scheme, including restaurants and shops.
Through the scheme, there is also the opportunity to consult with a qualified GP 24/7. The VIP platform offers a function whereby you can request a webcam consultation, to interact with a doctor online. They can then prescribe necessary medication by email following the consultation.
Helping to keep employees fit and healthy, the VIP platform provides access to lots of expert advice on healthy lifestyles, mental health and more. It provides special rates for accessing gyms and leisure centres and many other sporting facilities too, helping promote a healthy, active lifestyle.
Plus, there is support available for key health issues, such as giving up smoking, checking blood pressure and advice on healthy eating.
The VIP package includes a helpline and support services for staff wellbeing and mental health too. For example, there is access to expert counsellors, who are ready to listen no matter what the issue may be. The helpline is available 24/7 and completely private and confidential.
For those supporting children, or elderly or infirm relatives, the pressures and challenges can be many and varied. Thanks to the VIP package, care support is available via a mobile and can help restore work-life balance.
These services are designed to save time and help individuals chart a way through all their options, from finding practical, financial and legal support to emergency care services, preparing for a relative’s hospital visit and more. There are also experts available by phone, who can help uncover the best solutions for families and their loved ones, when faced with challenging circumstances.
You will be automatically signed up the VIP package from your first payslip until you are issued your P45. Full details will be sent to you by email, along with your unique login, giving you access to all the perks mentioned here, along with your payslips and pension information.

What makes a great security operative? Having employed and trained hundreds of security personnel over the years, we’ve learned a thing or two about what makes some candidates exceptional. Here are the key traits we look out for.
Andover-based security specialist, Venture Security, is celebrating 10 years in business, as it continues to expand its reach across Hampshire and throughout central southern England.
One of the key considerations any business needs to make is whether to employ security guards in-house, or to call on the services of an external security company. So, what are the pros and cons of in-house versus outsourced security? And what role can technology now play in crime prevention?
