Ashfield Rewards

This is a discount and benefit scheme which gives employees access to a great range of discounts from food shopping to holidays. There is something for everyone and thousands of ways to save through the scheme.

Visit the Ashfield Rewards website for more information.

Microsoft Office

Employees can subscribe to Office 365 at a reduced rate, either a personal copy or for 6 people in a household.

Employee health and wellbeing

Well being at Work

We are committed to providing opportunities and support for our employees to lead a healthy lifestyle.

A range of health and wellbeing activities are available including health checks, yoga, lunch time walks and workplace challenges.

Leisure centre discounts

Our employees are entitled to use the 6 Ashfield District leisure centres for discounted rates on swimming, sports hall activities, snooker, squash and the fitness and health suites.

You can access the activities at a concessionary rate by producing your council photo ID card to the leisure centre receptionists at the time of payment. Please remember these relate to you as the employee only on production of your photo ID, and not family or friends. 

Cycle 2 work scheme

The cycle to work scheme is a salary sacrifice scheme over a 12 month period for bicycles bought to ride to and from the workplace for at least 50% of the ridden time. It saves up to 42% off the cost of cycle accessories and safety equipment, up to £1000 from Halfords or independent retailers.

Employee health services

Occupational Health

If you have a health issue your manager may refer you, or you can ask to be referred to, an occupational health expert in order to gain more information and advice or support mechanisms that can be put into place. 

Referred Physiotherapy

In some instances, occupational health may recommend that physiotherapy would be beneficial to prevent further health issues which could result in time off work. 

Eye tests

We provide free eye tests to all employees who either use a computer screen or drive as part of their job.
