The following is an overview of our competitive employee benefits.
Team members are given the opportunity to become part of the largest social club in Australia. WOW Club offers everyday low prices on a wide range of benefits that appeal to all ages as well as families including movie and concert tickets and tickets to major sporting events (benefit applies to Australian team members).
We make it easier for team members to become Woolworths Limited shareholders and to share in the performance of the company. Once a year, eligible team members can choose to acquire shares by agreeing to forego a total of either $500 or $1,000 of pre-tax income over the relevant financial year. The Share Purchase Plan allows purchase of shares from pre-tax income via salary sacrifice with Woolworths paying the associated brokerage costs (benefit applies to Australian team members).
Woolworths Employee Credit Union is a financial institution that provides competitive products and services exclusively for the benefit of team members of the Woolworths Limited group and their immediate families. WECU's range of services include a selection of savings and investment accounts, loans for any worthwhile purpose, general and health insurance and financial planning (benefit applies to Australian team members).
All permanent full-time and part-time team members who have been employed by Woolworths for a minimum of two years continuous service are eligible for eight weeks Paid Parental Leave.
This payment is broken up into two sections, six weeks Paid Parental Leave and a two week return to work bonus (benefit applies to Australian team members).
No annual fee for Woolworths team members for the Everyday Money Credit Card (benefit applies to Australian team members).
Woolworths values the health and wellbeing of our people, which is why we have teamed up with Bupa to provide team members and their immediate family access to the Woolworths Health Plan. As a member you can look forward to a great range of benefits including a healthy discount. (Benefit applies to Australian team members)
The Employee Assistance Program - EAP (known as Vitae in New Zealand) is a free confidential, independent counselling and professional support service for Woolworths team members and their immediate families. The EAP provides assistance with work-related or personal concerns which can impact a team member's wellbeing and work effectiveness. If a team member or a family member needs help with alcohol, anger, anxiety, bereavement, conflict, depression, difficult people, domestic violence, drink driving, drugs, eating disorders, family, gambling, loss and grief, self esteem, stress, support, tobacco, trauma or work they can access confidential counselling 24 hours a day.
