Wellness & Benefit Packages

Hi All, 

Just wondering if anyone's company has a wellness and benefit package they offer employees? I am currently looking at reviewing and creating a wellness package as a small gesture from the company. I was thinking of structuring the programme with 5 or 6 options and renewing every year for employees to chose from. This would be a subsidy on gym membership up to £X, providing 1 new book per employee per month for the year, providing the employee a fit bit for the year to encourage health & fitness. If anyone has any other ideas, their company does this can you please share? 

Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Hi Lorraine, did you end up reviewing your wellness package? I'd be keen to hear about what you decided on. I am currently looking to review our reward offering and health and wellbeing is high up on the agenda. One of the options we offer is Sovereign Healthcare - this has a number of levels and can also extend to the partners/and or children of the employee. This scheme allow employees to claim back money towards things like physio, eye care, prescriptions, hospital stays etc. 

  • Hi Lorraine

    Once an employee passes their probationary period we add them to Health Shield. All employees are covered at level one which is paid for by the company. The employee can then increase their cover or add their partner at their own cost.

    Healthshield will reimburse for the usual optical, dental and dental accident as well as physio and complimentary therapies.



  • HI Lorraine.

    Great question and pleased to hear you're thinking of and valuing your team in this way. At DPG we've done lots of work with Perkbox in our employee engagement zone. There are a range of benefits available under one package.

    This link here is an interesting read anyway based on what you're doing. At the bottom, there is a link to find out more about how Perkbox can support you.

    Hope this helps,
