About Gocompare.com


What is it like to work for Gocompare.com

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
At Gocompare.com they have a Health and Well-being Committee consisting of a member from each department, ensuring they provide a varied and relevant H&W provision to their staff. Each week they hold a weight and nutrition session with a trained professional during work hours and five- a-side football, squash club and boot camp after work – all of which are subsidised by the company. This is a great forum for staff to come together as a team and support each other in their objectives for eating well and having a healthier lifestyle. Where possible they link the seasonal board to their charity work to raise money and awareness of important health issues such as Breast Cancer Care and Movember. They ensure the information is timely and accurate and their dedicated H&W intranet page facilitates this. They have information about healthy eating (such as low-fat recipes), losing weight, stress management, and other mental health issues featured here. They also have subsidised access to heart and health monitoring with a company doctor, run stress audits with all staff, and smoking cessation sessions during work hours for those who are interested.

In August 2012, Gocompare.com held the aptly named “family day” event which, as the name suggests, was for Gocompare.com staff and their families. This event was held at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport on a Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately due to the Great British weather they could not hold the event outside, so at the last minute brought everything into the function room for everyone to enjoy the experience and avoid disappointment. The purpose of the event was to bring staff together, along with their partners and children in a completely different forum to work. They had a fantastic turnout with 75% of staff attending, along with their families. It was a catered event with a BBQ buffet and a great selection of entertainment and activities including a giant inflatable mega slide (which was mostly for the adults), bouncy castle, children's entertainers and giant garden games. They also hired out the resort's tree-tops activity and paint balling.

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Over the last few years the company have raised thousands of pounds for many charities. They are always keen to support local charities and give something back to the community. Last year alone they sponsored their PR agency who ran the London Marathon for Merlin, and the friend of an employee who ran 1027 miles solo around the entire perimeter of Wales within 42 days. They also sponsored customers, including Ben the Ironman who ran 3 marathons for his son and Whizzkids, and another who is taking part in the Toughest Footrace on Earth for Hope Childrens Charity. Another 153 charities so far all over the UK are benefiting from their help in the FSI's "The Big Small Charity Draw". Another area of their charity commitment is helping the local community. They are proud sponsors of two local sports clubs, including a children's football team and cricket team.
