Held every year, it’s our opportunity to recognise and celebrate all the heroes behind our food. It’s when we say a massive thank you to our frontline chefs and culinary teams who champion their communities and environment. It’s our chance to show how incredibly grateful we are for their extraordinary dedication, creativity, and passion to nourish and connect us through thoughtfully prepared, delicious food, meal after meal.

Facilities Managements (FM) Appreciation Week

FM makes up a third of our overall business in the UK & Ireland. FM Appreciation Week showcases and celebrates the work of all our facilities managers and their teams. Those who often work behind the scenes within our business - colleagues in business helpdesk and guest services, cleaning, security, outdoor services, mechanical and electrical maintenance - are often the unsung heroes who ensure the smooth running of our sites 24/7.

Need a helping hand?

Sometimes, we all need a helping hand or a sounding board to discuss our concerns. Let us signpost you to that help – whatever it may be.
There’s no need to feel alone
Financial pressures, relationship concerns or family issues, can cause untold worry and anxieties. But you don’t need to feel alone when facing life's challenges. Our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is always there for you 24/7, 365 days a year. You can seek confidential support and advice from qualified, independent consultants.
Support at your fingertips
Making sure you stay healthy - both mentally and physically - is important to us. That’s why you have access to a series of health and wellbeing benefits through the Aviva DigiCare+ Workplace app. It’s all about spotting potential problems early on and getting the help and support when you need it. All services are available to your spouse, civil partner, and dependents too (subject to annual limits of course).
Speak Up, Employee Helpline
Our 24/7, 365 days a year confidential helpline is there for you to report issues that they feel may are unsafe, unethical, or illegal, and that they may be uncomfortable discussing with your manager. You can contact Speak Up for access to an independent, external service provider.
So, what happens next?
