At NPS we believe it important to recognise an individual’s unique talents. Please click the headings below to find out how we reward and recognise our people.
We review our salaries against the market on an annual basis to remain competitive. Our basic salary will reflect your skills, experience and performance.
Pension and life assurance
To support you in planning for the future we offer the Amber Pension Scheme. As a member of this Scheme, your contribution of 5% basic salary is matched by NPS Group. You will also have the option to increase your monthly contribution through our on-line portal.
As an Amber Pension member, you will have the peace of mind to know that you are covered by Life Assurance (3 x your salary).
As an employee you will be able to exclusively access 'Choices', an on-line benefit portal which you will be able to model and change your reward package on an annual basis to meet the needs of you and your family, with some benefits available all year round.
We constantly review and refresh what is on offer. Current benefits include:
- Childcare Vouchers
- Cycle to Work Scheme
- Health Cash Plan
- Private Medical Insurance
- Healthcare Assessments
- Annual Leave Purchase
- Discounted Car Leasing
- Everyday discounts on shopping, days out, gym membership, travel and more
We believe it is important to recognise your achievements and to support this we have a number of initiatives in place, including:
- Thanks2U Awards – a way of saying thank you for employee contributions
- Exceptional Performance Pay Awards – rewarding outstanding achievements and commitment with a one off payment or salary increase
- NPS Excellence Awards – recognising individuals that exemplify our Values
- Loyalty Awards – recognising service of 15, 20, 25 and 30 years
Health and wellbeing
We recognise the importance for all members of staff to enjoy a healthy work life balance and to help staff achieve this, NPS operates flexible working arrangements. This is an addition to our robust family friendly policies which ensure staff have a way to take the time they need to focus on their family when the unexpected arises.
For parents or guardians, we also participate in a childcare voucher scheme, which provides a more flexible way to meet the costs of your childcare through a Salary Exchange arrangement.
Training and development
NPS Group has its own dedicated Talent Team whose sole purpose is to attract talent to the organisation and provide opportunities for all employees to develop.
We take your development seriously and for that reason we reimburse the cost for one professional membership per annum.
Our talent programmes are aimed at people at different stages of their careers, including Apprentice and Graduate programmes, the Future Leaders Academy and the Management Development Programme.
What makes us different?
Our company culture is driven by our values, which underpin everything we do as a company. Our success is measured not only through business results, but also through the difference we can make within our communities and the way we work together. Each employee has a chance to take advantage of one paid Volunteering day a year.
Living our values - NPS Excellence Awards:
Everything we do is centred around our four core values. We strive for Quality, Innovation, Respect and Trust in the way we deliver services to our clients. The NPS Excellence Awards recognise teams and individuals who exemplify one or more of these values to bring something extra to their work and the services we provide. Staff can be nominated by their colleagues with shortlisted finalists invited to an annual Group awards ceremony.
