We pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive and competitive benefits package. Coloplast also has a flexible benefits scheme which gives employees the option of purchasing benefits that suit them and their lifestyle.
The company provides 28 days annual leave, plus bank holidays. Employees also have the opportunity to sell up to five days holiday in any calendar year, subject to usual departmental rules.
Profit Related Pay
We are proud of our achievements in the marketplace and want our employees to share in our success. The company therefore has a profit related payment scheme, which is open to all employees, after the necessary qualifying period.
Share Incentive Plan
The Coloplast Share Incentive Plan is a scheme which allows shares to be provided to employees in a tax-efficient (and NIC-efficient) way. These shares are known as "Partnership Shares".
We believe that the use of Partnership Shares will extend and strengthen the culture of employee share ownership that we already have and encourage you to feel more a part of the company and more able to share in its success.
Health and Wellbeing
All employees receive free, personal private medical cover through Aviva. Through our Flexible Benefits system, it is possible to purchase Aviva medical cover for family members, dental cover for yourself and your family and a choice of comprehensive health checks. Critical illness cover can also be purchased for yourself and your partner.
In addition, we have negotiated corporate rates with a range of gyms and leisure centres. We also provide a confidential 24 hour Employee Assistance Programme for all employees.
Group Self Invested Personal Pension
A contributory Company Pension Scheme is available for all employees.
To give you peace of mind we also provide a death in service benefit which equates to four times your salary.
Coloplast support the Computershare scheme which provides Tax and NI efficient vouchers for employees to use to pay for a wide range of childcare.
Learning & Development
We are strongly committed to learning and development. In our last financial year, we spent three times the national average and 2013 saw a further increase in our investment. We have a range of learning and development options including on-the-job training, e-learning, facilitated courses and externally recognised professional qualifications. These all form part of our Coloplast Academy, an award winning learning and development portal.
We are delighted to be reaccredited for Investors in People in 2014 demonstrating our commitment to delivering a high standard of Learning & Development
Finally, as a business we also run a number of bonus, reward and recognition schemes.
In 2013, the Sales Person of the Year from each sales division and the Employee of the Year from Head Office all won a fully expensed trip for two to Antigua. In 2014 the lucky employees will be going to the Seychelles.
