Sulzer partners with UK’s largest nursery group to support working parents

Engineering giant Sulzer Pumps has partnered with global nursery provider Busy Bees to offer its UK employees a practical childcare solution. 

The partnership will offer the company’s 1,200 UK-based staff a 10 per cent discount on childcare fees at any of the Busy Bees network of more than 350 nurseries across the country, as well as further incentives to support working parents. 

Annette Paone, HR Manager at Sulzer Pumps UK, said: “We recognise what a big commitment childcare is for working parents and, as a business, we believe it is important to do anything we can to support our people. 

“Making childcare more accessible helps us to encourage valued colleagues back to work and look after our existing team. Partnering with Busy Bees forms part of a comprehensive benefits package to support employee health and wellbeing. 

“Sulzer is a very friendly and caring organisation. Staff participate in many charity and community activities as we believe it is important to support our employees and the people around us.” 

Busy Bees is the UK’s largest childcare provider and has four decades of experience in providing a practical, child-centred approach to providing exceptional early years education.  

The group offers childcare solutions so that employers can offer working parents a workplace benefit. Whether through buying nursery places for emergency childcare or offering a childcare discount, Busy Bees childcare solutions help businesses retain people longer, hire top talent, improve employee wellbeing, and foster workplace equality.  

Antony Morrison, Business Sales Director at Busy Bees at Work, added: “We are thrilled to welcome Sulzer to the Busy Bees family and to offer childcare solutions for their employees.  

 “At a time when companies need to recruit and retain the best talent, we understand that it is so important for families, especially parents returning to work, to feel supported and have viable childcare options available to them.  

 “There is huge value in adding a childcare solution to your list of employee benefits and it’s great that Sulzer is now able to offer further support to its working parents.”
