Rewards and benefits
Recognising and rewarding achievement
Everyone at Hydrock has the opportunity to excel, whether in a professional, community, environmental or health and safety capacity.
Anyone can be nominated for outstanding achievement to the Board which decides the best way to recognise individual endeavour.
We believe in rewarding exceptional performance, with a discretionary bonus payable on the nomination of a director. We also recognise the contribution that long-standing and loyal employees make to our business with a financial and holiday bonus.
We support and encourage all our people to pursue their professional development and recognise and reward published articles and presentations at external events with a cash bonus.
We also pay a bonus to anyone who achieves chartered membership of a professional body during their employment with us, as well as reimbursing the cost of membership with a professional body.
We provide a wide range of contractual and voluntary benefits to suit every lifestyle, providing the best choice and value in a tax-efficient package. Our benefits frequently exceed both the industry standard and statutory requirements. Here’s just a taster of some of the benefits on offer:
We want Hydrock to be the best place to work in our industry. We want to look after our people professionally and, just as importantly, as individuals.
Pensions: our advisers will provide you with personal independent financial knowhow at the outset to plan a pension to suit you, plus regular reviews on an individual basis.
Save as you shop: we offer access to online and in-store discounts, helping you to save money on everything from supermarket groceries to one-off purchases such as a new car.
We also recognise the significant benefit of sharing precious time as new parents, with full pay during paternity leave, enhanced maternity benefits and a flexible approach to returning to work in order to optimise work-life balance.
A healthy lifestyle
We believe that a healthy body is a healthy mind. So we encourage the pursuit of fitness, providing an annual healthy living bonus to help cover personal expenses focused on recreational health.
We also provide fresh fruit in all Hydrock offices and on long-term sites, as well as a day off to support good causes. Under our Cycle to Work scheme employees are entitled to a bike and accessories worth up to £1,000.
We know that your health, and that of your family, are critical to your overall wellbeing so we also offer occupational health support, critical illness cover, and a range of other health related options.
An emphasis on wellbeing
As part of our company-wide commitment to health and wellbeing, we provide all Hydrock employees and their immediate family with access to a free, 24/7 confidential Wellbeing Supportline.
This employee assistance programme offers access to support and advice from trained counsellors and external advisors with respect to many personal issues. These include stress and anxiety, personal relationship concerns, financial affairs, difficulties at work, bereavement, addiction and substance abuse.
Managed by Bupa, our Wellbeing Supportline is advertised in every Hydrock office and site office to ensure our employees are aware of the support and help they can access whenever they need it.
