Lowell Financial is offering employees a 20% discount on childcare costs to support its working parents.
The Leeds-based credit management service provider, which has 1,700 members of staff, is giving families the opportunity to save on fees at more than 350 nurseries across the UK.
Through a partnership with Busy Bees, workers can use any of the early years education group’s facilities at the discounted price, in a move the firm hopes will enable them to access affordable childcare.
Jill Maples, UK people director, for Lowell Financial, explained that the business was delighted to partner with Busy Bees and give something back to its colleagues.
She said: “We want everyone who works at Lowell to thrive, so we’ve created a workplace and culture that supports colleagues in their working and personal life.
“Affordable childcare is vital for working parents, allowing them to focus on their career with the reassurance that their children are receiving the best early years care and education.”
Antony Morrison, business sales director at Busy Bees at Work, said the company was pleased to welcome Lowell’s team into the Busy Bees family.
He added: “Forward-thinking companies like Lowell have recognised they need to build more inclusive benefits packages to attract and retain their top talent.
“Childcare solutions are a key decision factor for working families and represent a win-win for businesses because if employees have less to worry about at home, they will undoubtedly feel better and work more productively.”
