Health and wellbeing
We believe that a positive working environment that allows employees to thrive and achieve is only possible if our staff feel supported. Our Employee Assistance Programme is a free confidential, impartial service that provides advice on any issue 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our OneSmallStep service offers advice and support to anyone seeking to make healthy changes in their life, whether that be losing weight, cutting down on alcohol consumption or quitting smoking. We also provide eye care vouchers and have an occupational health programme.
Our Devon Discounts scheme provides our employees with great savings both locally and nationally. We have discounts on everything from gyms, to hotels, to cars, to language lessons, to travel and transport.
