Last year, Value Retail was celebrated for its achievements following its implementation of a number of initiatives. These include the introduction of trained mental health first aiders and wellbeing ambassadors into all of its European shopping villages, its first in-house benefits fair, menopause awareness sessions, a mental health in-app counselling and therapy service, an increased holiday allowance and enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption leave policies. It also held special events for national awareness events.

A Value Retail spokesperson said: “We’ve put in a lot of hard work over the past year and this is a great achievement. We’ve done a lot of work on our benefits and looked at gaps that could be filled with the help and support of our wellbeing ambassadors. We’ve done a lot around mental health as well as looking to support all of our employees, from our younger employees to those coming up to retirement.”

The Employee Benefits Awards, which is in its 22nd year, will be held at the Honourable Artillery Company, London on Friday 14 June. The daytime event will include a drinks reception, three-course meal, entertainment and the chance to network with industry professionals.
