GMG Radio to provide healthcare cash plans

GMG Radio has signed a contract with Medicash to provide employees with healthcare cash plans.

The cash plans will give the 400 GMG Radio employees a range of benefits, including dental and optical care, as well as access to complementary therapies and discounted gym membership.

The national radio business, which encompasses the Real Radio, Smooth Radio and Rock Radio brands, is working towards the Investors in People Health and Wellbeing award.

The cash plan complements the firm’s employee benefit package, which includes a pension scheme, flexible working hours, birthdays given as a free holiday and paid-for monthly staff lunches.

Rachael Lewis, HR business partner, GMG Radio, said: “We wanted to add to our existing employee benefits and Medicash were able to provide a cost effective, comprehensive package which appealed to our young, active workforce.

“Staff were asking for ways to improve and maintain their health and Medicash allows them to do this. We have a very talented workforce so it is crucial that we both motivate and retain our best staff.”

Sue Weir, chief executive of Medicash, commented: “GMG Radio is committed to employee wellbeing and this is reflected in the way they engage with their workforce and respond to their needs.

“The Medicash plan allows employees to claim back costs of day to day healthcare which encourages them to take a preventative approach to looking after their health.”
