At KP, our people are our number one priority. We strive to provide our colleagues with an environment that’s fun, rewarding, and helps them be the best they can be.
By continuing to listen to, invest in and grow the potential of our colleagues, we believe our business will continue to be successful today and for generations to come.
The KP Deal
Here at KP, we strive to make a difference for our colleagues and their families every day. We encourage our colleagues to live our company Values & Behaviours, we give them the opportunity to develop and grow, as well as the tools to look after their wellbeing. We also offer a great range of flexible benefits to help make KP an even better place to work – this is known as the KP Deal.
The KP Deal is made up of four pillars that fit into the Good for our People strand of Our Taste for Good:
- Reward and Recognition
- Values & Behaviours
- Personal Growth
Motivated people are happy people
Each year we seek feedback from all our colleagues through the Best Companies employee engagement survey. This gives an accurate reflection of how our people feel about different aspects of their lives at KP. It helps us adjust what we’re doing and set new targets to make sure everyone continues to enjoy a fulfilling working life and stay motivated to do their best.
We want a career with KP to be rewarding in every aspect – and that includes financially. As well as fair and affordable rates of pay (above National Living Wage), in 2019 we launched a new rewards and recognition platform and app called KP4ME, to help our colleagues’ money go further. It provides colleagues with access to our discount scheme offering savings with a huge range of high street retailers, grocery shopping, insurance and utility services as well as cinema tickets and days out, plus useful tools such as financial planning advice, wellbeing resources and a digital GP. 99% of our KP colleagues are active users of KP4ME, which is also a great source of news and company information.
Mental health matters
The mental health of our colleagues is just as important as their physical wellbeing, so in 2018 we introduced our award-winning Mental Health First Aider scheme.
To date, more than 130 KP colleagues have been trained as MHFAs, supported by our Employee Health & Wellbeing team. Overall patches and photo boards mean that all KP colleagues, wherever they are, can identify someone nearby to turn to for a bit of extra support or advice if things start to get on top of them.
