How the Employee Hub can help you


May 3rd, 2022

The Employee Hub is available to all contracted staff at the university. On the Hub you will find information about managing your wellbeing including access to the Employee Assistance Programme and information about all of our optional benefits.

Since January 2022 more than 2,700 staff members have logged on to the hub and taken advantage of the wellbeing tools and benefits available.

Please log on to see how the Employee Hub could help you.

Staff discounts

Staff who use the staff discounts website save on average 6% every time they use the system. With many of us noticing our bills and outgoings rising, we wanted to remind you that as an employee of the university you have access to discounts via the Employee Hub which can help you stretch your money further. We’ve highlighted some of our favourite offers for May below.

  • Save 4% in-store and online at ASDA and George.com with an eVoucher or when you buy or load a reloadable card.
  • Enjoy the great outdoors with equipment from Decathlon and save yourself 7% when you purchase an instant eVoucher.
  • Get discounted cinema tickets you purchase your tickets in advance (including on annual passes) at selected cinemas
  • Great food, delivered to your door with 5% off UberEats, 4% at Deliveroo and 8% at Just Eat

Wellbeing 

The Employee Hub is home to the Wellbeing Hub which contains a large range of resources to support you in managing your wellbeing.

The Wellbeing Hub is designed to provide you with a range of provisions and services incorporating Healthy Lifestyle, Healthy Mental Wellbeing, Healthy Environment, Healthy Work Experience and Social Wellbeing. You can find links to advice and resources to support you across all of these different areas.

From healthy eating and physical exercise, short courses on topics such as resilience and mindfulness, access to the Employee Assistance Programme, webinars to promote good mental health and much more.

Salary sacrifice schemes

We have two salary sacrifice schemes which are open all year round and also support our sustainability goals. A salary sacrifice scheme allows you to reduce your salary in return for a benefit, in this case either a bike or use (lease) of a brand new car.

  • The car  benefit scheme gives staff access to a range of brand new cars under 124g/km CO2 emissions; they come complete with motor insurance, servicing, road tax, maintenance, replacement tyres and RAC breakdown cover, for a fixed monthly amount. Additionally, you can make National Insurance and Income Tax savings on pure electric vehicles due to the low Benefit in Kind (BiK) rate of 2% until 2025. Due to National Minimum Wage legislation you need to be earning over £19,000 to be eligible to participate in this Scheme. To find out more about how you can drive a brand new car through Tusker’s car benefit scheme, as well as the opportunity to ask any questions, register to join the live webinar on Wednesday 11 May, from 12-1pm.
  • The cycle to work scheme value has just been increased to £4000 which can be used against the cost of a new bike and safety accessories for commuting to work.

Nottingham Reward Scheme

Make online nominations at any point during the year (click here for details on who can nominate) but remember the higher level rewards (£500, fixed value and consolidated rewards) are only reviewed at set points.

The next review period for nominations will be June and the deadline for nominations is Tuesday 31 May 2022. Vouchers nominations for between £25 and £100 can be reviewed and approved locally at any time throughout the year. Full scheme details can be found within the Nottingham Reward Scheme guidance or on the Employee Hub.
