Kent charity appoints Benenden to provide health and wellbeing services for staff
16th July 2015
The Kent Autistic Trust has chosen mutual healthcare provider Benenden to provide health and wellbeing services to 170 members of staff as part of a corporate health plan.
Signing up to Benenden’s corporate health plan means that employees of the registered charity, which is a non-profit making organisation, will have access to a wide range of discretionary healthcare services and will be able to request expert medical advice, prompt diagnosis and treatment, as well as benefit from 24-hour, UK based GP and Psychological Wellbeing Helpline.
Christine Edwards-Daem, Chief Executive Officer at the Kent Autistic Trust, whose headquarters are in Brompton, near Gillingham, Kent, said: “The health and wellbeing of our staff is crucial to us as an organisation and so we are delighted to work with Benenden to offer a corporate health plan to our employees.
“Staff will have access to a wide range of discretionary healthcare services under the scheme which we see as a key benefit. It is an excellent, good value way to provide our employees with reassurance on healthcare.”
There are 22 Benenden approved hospitals across the UK, one of which is Benenden Hospital in Cranbrook, Kent. Benenden Hospital is currently undergoing a £45 million redevelopment to make it a state-of-the-art facility poised to meet future healthcare needs.
Fiona Dun, National Account Manager at Benenden said: “It’s great news to have an organisation like the Kent Autistic Trust on board as a corporate member.
“We very much champion health and wellbeing in the workplace and understand the impact this can have on productivity and absence management. We look forward to working with the Kent Autistic Trust to ensure their staff are healthy and happy in the workplace.”
The Kent Autistic Trust is one of many companies in the South East and indeed across the UK who have a corporate membership scheme with Benenden for the benefit of their employees, costing just £9.10 per employee, per month.
