Hermes launches benefits book for staff

Logistics firm Hermes has launched a benefits book for its 1,300 employees.

The company introduced the book, which is provided in conjunction with Personal Group, in a bid to offer something for all employees.

Hermes was formerly known as Parcelnet and is part of the Otto Group, which also owns clothing catalogue retailers Freemans and Grattan. Hermes used to have staff sales via these firms, but following company reorganisation, this was no longer possible.

Paul McCormack, human resources director at Hermes, explained: “We had a staff sale but that was no longer available and we wanted to try something different.”

The new book details how employees can access discounts at a number of well-known retailers, including Arcadia and Argos. It also includes money off hotel breaks and cinema trips.
