The Linde Group prides itself on the support it offers its employees and as such offers a variety of excellent benefits. Some of the benefits are generic across all employees, others may be relevant to certain groups or individuals.
If you offered a position with the company your offer letter will clearly set out the benefits to which you are entitled.
All UK permanent and contract employees will be entitled to join the BOC Retirement Savings Plan from their start date with the Company. This is a contributory scheme, with various levels of contribution.
Typically, most employees work a 37.5 hour week Monday to Friday, however this is dependent on the type of work and contract agreed. You will be informed of the contracted hours of work for the role in which you are interested either at advertising or interview stage.
Employees are entitled to holidays according to their contract or trade union agreement. The standard holiday entitlement is normally 25 days. Employees are also entitled to 8 statutory holidays as observed by the Company. Dependant on your position, leave will be increased for employees with over 10 years service.
The Company provides Private Health Insurance through PPP to those employees who are eligible. This would be discussed at the offer letter stage if appropriate.
BOC will also provide options on a car scheme if your new job requires a car. BOC also make available a status car scheme option to employees of a senior grade.
The Study Support policy has been devised with the specific aim of helping employees upgrade their skills, to improve formal qualifications and enhance their career potential. Typically financial assistance and study leave is offered to employees who wish to develop their skills and qualifications further.
The Company supports the formation of sports and social clubs where enough employees are interested to make the clubs viable. The Company will make a contribution towards the funding of the club, either on an ad-hoc basis or by regular contributions.
The company recognises the value of expertise and information gained from professional institutions and memberships and therefore is prepared to pay individual’s membership subscription fees for any appropriate institutes.
On all of the BOC sites, where there is car parking it is free.
On most of the larger sites and some of the smaller ones there can be found subsidised restaurants. Sites without restaurants usually have a Rest room or Mess Room, where kitchen equipment can be found.
