Boots partners with Busy Bees to support its working parents
With over 350 Busy Bees nurseries across the UK, the new partnership will offer Boots team members 10% off their childcare fees at all UK Busy Bees Nurseries. Along with access to one week of free childcare and £0 enrolment fees.
The initiative joins the health and beauty retailer's existing employee benefits, including a team member discount scheme, paying for selected healthcare services, free flu jabs and free eye tests, with 50% of glasses.
Ben Horner, HR Director at Boots UK, said: “We are delighted to partner with Busy Bees to give additional support to working parents who form such a large part of our workforce. We believe that this is a highly valuable offer for our teams of working parents and those returning to work – and offers an additional employee benefit that will make a meaningful difference.”
Antony Morrison, Business Sales Director at Busy Bees at Work, said: “We are delighted to partner with Boots to offer childcare solutions to their employees. Finding suitable childcare is a challenge for many working parents, and sadly, a quarter of parents in the UK don’t go back to work following parental leave due to a lack of childcare options available to them. Now more than ever, it’s so important that companies recognise the value of adding a childcare solution to their employee benefits.”
Last month, Boots announced it will hire over 10,000 seasonal employees in its stores, warehouses and operations this festive period.
