At Nugent we offer our staff a series of Benefits, rewards and recognition.
Here is a summary of what we currently offer to our staff.
|Counselling service||We provide a confidential service for staff who can access this anytime, it is provided by Compass Counselling.|
|Hybrid working||We provide business support staff and some operational staff in managerial positions with the option to undertake hybrid working. This means that staff members have the ability to split their week working remotely (normally homeworking) and/or working at our services. This allows flexibility in the choice of workplace, a greater work-life balance and also a minimization of the daily commute which is beneficial from both a financial and welfare perspective.|

Staff pay a percentage of their salary monthly into their pension fund.
Nugent also pays a contribution to the individual’s pension fund
