At Hovis®, we like to look after our colleagues, so we provide a variety of benefits in addition to their salaries.
These benefits reflect our values, and they’re chosen to suit the individual needs of the people receiving them, which is why they can choose what they’d like to receive. It may be a discount on gym memberships, retail discounts, or perhaps joining our Cycle to Work scheme. Family is incredibly important to Hovis®, so in addition to the benefits mentioned that enable our colleagues to save money on their day to day living, we also offer enhanced annual leave and maternity/paternity leave, and flexibility where possible in order to create a healthy work-life balance.
We recognise and are very proud of the fact that we have an incredibly loyal colleague population, with some sites having two or three generations of family working within the site. In order to recognise this loyalty and those who go above and beyond in their roles, we have a generous long service and colleague recognition scheme that acknowledges and is communicated throughout the year.
We offer three levels of pensions at Hovis®, one being the auto-enrolment scheme where the contributions are set by the government and the other two being different levels of contribution within our company defined contribution pension scheme. If you take up the defined contribution pension you can do this via salary sacrifice which also means you save on tax and national insurance payments. Another benefit of joining our defined contribution pension is receiving life assurance cover.
Hovis® Choice is a way in which we say thank you to all our colleagues in recognition of their hard work and support that is delivered on a daily basis. It offers a variety of savings and cashback offers on day to day living and much more including eyecare vouchers, and a healthcare scheme to suit everyone. It also includes our Cycle to Work scheme where you can obtain a brand new bike at a significant saving.
The benefits we provide at Hovis® are as varied as the people who receive them but they are offered with the intention of creating value to family life over and above their salaries.
