Personal Group, a provider of employee benefits, employee related insurance products and financial services in the UK, has been awarded one of the most significant employee benefits contracts in the group’s history.
The group will provide a benefits programme to the 33,000 employees of Four Seasons Health Care – the UK’s largest independent health and social care provider, which operates over 500 care homes, hospitals and specialist centres across the UK.
Ian Smith, chairman of Four Seasons, said: "We are always looking for additional ways to recognise our employees for the care and commitment they demonstrate every day. Providing a range of benefits and discounts is one way of saying thank you to them.”
Mark Scanlon, CEO of Personal Group, commented: "This is a significant contract win for Personal Group and we are proud to serve Four Seasons. This contract award also further strengthens our position as a leading employee benefits provider to the healthcare sector, where our clients also include Aspen Healthcare and Barchester Healthcare. This sizeable contract is a great achievement for the Group and follows our success in 2013, having won contracts including Network Rail, for their 35,000 employees.”
The voluntary benefits programme will commence in March 2014.
