About Nationwide Hire Ltd

Nationwide Hire organise hire facilities to the shopfitting and construction industries, providing a national service to customers requiring the very best equipment, delivered to tight timescales across the UK.

From humble beginnings as a family owned business, Nationwide Hire now manage a customer portfolio of over £16-million. Between people on the phones and excellent support staff, they do it all with a smile on their faces and confidence in knowing that all colleagues have each others back.

To enhance the wellbeing of employees, Nationwide Hire have provided an employee cash plan, where employees can be reimbursed for health/dental appointments. This plan also provides 24/7 GP and counselling services which reduce the time it takes to reach a GP or to talk to a professional about their personal problems.

Nationwide Hire also have three staff who were trained at 'Mind - for better mental health' in London. These staff look for the signs of stress in the workplace and due to their cross-functional teams, can be taken out of the operational working environment to a quiet space in the office where problems/issues can be discussed. From there, GP or counselling referrals can take place.
