Searcys announces new employee benefits

British restaurateur and events caterer Searcys has launched a new range of employee benefits as part of its recruitment, training and retention strategy.

In residence across 20 plus venues in London and Bath, Searcys has reviewed its employee benefit scheme to introduce new and improved perks, which are aimed to nurture and grow staff within the business.

With over 1,100 members across its venues and head office team, the company is proud to continue to offer a wide range of training programmes, which now includes 43 apprenticeship schemes, along with enrolment into Searcys Champagne School.

This runs alongside benefits including up to 38 days of annual leave and a 50% discount on food across Searcys venues, while there is also an emphasis on improving its family and parental benefits in recognition of its importance, which includes enhanced maternity and paternity payments.

With the wellbeing of staff being paramount, all team members have access to a 24/7 employee assistance programme, alongside in-house Mental Health first aiders, the option for Bupa medical cover and access to gym discounts and a cycle to work scheme.

In addition, making sure the team is part of wider conversations, Searcys marked International Women’s Day on 8th March with a Searcys Networking Breakfast.

Discussing this year’s IWD theme to Embrace Equity, speakers included: former Chief Operating Officer of UN Sustainable Investment Initiative Esther van der Zee, MD of London Chamber Orchestra Jocelyn Lightfoot, Operations Director at guest services company Portico, Hanna Barrett, People Director at Searcys Denise Allen, and Searcys MD Paul Jackson (pictured far right) with Searcys’ own team invited to join the discussion.

Denise Allen, People Director at Searcys, shared, “Our ambition is to become the best place to work in the hospitality industry, and with our business growing, we have put a particular emphasis on ensuring that we look after, nurture and develop our people so that they are given all the opportunity to grow with us.

'The launch of our enhanced benefits package is an important step in our long-term retention strategy,” Denise concluded.
