Travel company support staff with new scheme

Have your say

A COACH firm is investing in a new scheme to protect and support its employees.

Lucketts Travel has pledged to pay for every single member of staff to join The Transport Benevolent Fund which supports those who work in the public transport industry and could receive cash grants, counselling, medical consultations and bereavement grants should they need it.

Managing director of the Fareham based firm, Tony Lawman said while he hoped staff would not come to be in a position to need some of the TBF’s services, he was pleased to be able to offer them for free.

He added: ‘Creating an enjoyable and inspiring place to work is a fundamental part of our values and we strive to do all we can to help our staff both inside and outside of the workplace.

‘This latest addition to our staff benefits scheme will provide a fantastic resource for employees should they need it and we’re delighted to foot the bill.’

Lucketts Travel employs more than 320 people and has a heavy focus on supporting its staff including training schemes and discounts on cinema tickets to home broadband.
