Our Benefits include
We recognise that effective employee development is not only vital to meeting future goals and ambitions but also makes an essential contribution to the development of the individual. We have a wealth of formal and informal learning opportunities including 'on the job' training, professional and technical qualifications and management training which can help our employees develop their career.
Auto Enrolled Pension Scheme
Upon completion of three months service all employees are automatically enrolled into the pension scheme.
Childcare Voucher Scheme
Acorn provides a childcare voucher scheme through one of the leading providers. This scheme enables savings to be made on a variety of childcare options.
Acorn Cycle to Work Scheme
Acorn operates a cycle to work scheme that allows employees to take advantage of tax savings on cycling equipment and to maintain a healthy lifestyle at the same time.
Sport & Social Events
A reward fund is built up throughout periods of strong profitability, which leads to company social events and away days, such as golf, spa, theatre and day trips for all Acorn employees.
The Acorn reward scheme is intended to recognise and reward people who have excelled. It is done on an ad hoc basis, in response to nominations from staff/clients in recognition of their achievements.
Well Being Calendar
We have also recently introduced a well-being calendar into the business for our employees. Each month has a different focus and provides everyone with support, information and encouragement on that particular subject. Our campaigns include: drink awareness, healthy eating, quit smoking, drink more water and keep fit.
Acorn contributes to individual and team efforts to raise money for charities and good causes in accordance with the company fundraising policy.
