“The health plan has been well received by all members of staff and it has really made a difference. Employees are using the benefits to help towards their medical costs and are even having treatment they had previously postponed.”

Louise Crennell, HR Manager, Orchard Information Systems

Background

Orchard Information Systems, based in Newcastle, provides specialist software solutions to the public and social housing sectors. A member of North East Chamber of Commerce, they had the opportunity to implement the Westfield Health Chamber Primary Health Plan for their employees.

Challenge

Orchard Information Systems wanted to introduce a health plan to give something back to their hardworking staff.

Solution

Orchard introduced the Chamber Primary Health Plan and, since then, many staff have used the consultation benefit to cut the lengthy wait following a GP referral. This in turn has benefited the company as it's resulted in staff taking less time off work. It's also been a great recruitment tool for attracting new employees.

How did we help

  • Helped staff to get back to work much quicker

  • Helped recruit and retain staff

  • Helped staff with their medical bills and to have treatment they would have otherwise put off
