Meet the team:
Hello, my name is Teena Wiseman and I am the Staff Benefits Manager. I am based at York Hospital and have worked in the Staff Benefits Team for 23 years.
My favourite project was opening the Staff Shop at Scarborough Hospital. It was a great feeling for me that we were offering staff the opportunity to purchase goods at competitive prices whilst at work. Another favourite of mine is working on an outdoor space/ garden project which is really challenging but enjoyable. Giving staff a space outdoors to sit and reflect.
The thing I love most about my job is ensuring that staff get the best possible benefits package. Through engaging and listening to staff, the Team has developed an extensive voluntary benefits package.
The Benefits package is part of what we offer all staff who are attracted to working with us. It is great to see staff who we have helped with their personal preferences, it’s so rewarding for the team and myself.
Hello, my name is Helen Hardwick and I am the Staff Benefits Deputy Manager. I am based at York Hospital and have worked in the Staff Benefits Team since 2012.
My favourite event is without doubt the Summer Fairs. I love being able to see so many staff face to face and it’s so much fun even if the weather is not always on our side!
The thing I love most about my job is our staff - working to try and make their days a little easier whether its offering a subsidised massage or negotiating a restaurant discount to help the pennies go further.
Hello, my name is Laura Streets and I am the Staff Benefits Coordinator. I am based at Scarborough Hospital and have worked in the Staff Benefits Team for 5 years.
My favourite project is the Staff Benefits Desk Calendar. I love the creativity it brings in deciding on a theme and matching design. Every year we get some fantastic entries from staff across the Trust and I love to see the variety of pictures and how each colleague has interpreted the brief.
The thing I love most about my job is getting to tell people when they’ve won the staff lottery, or a competition, or a raffle prize. Fortunately I get to deliver good news on a regular basis and I love to see how excited people get when they find out they’ve won something!
Hello, my name is Annabel Newey and I am the Staff Shop Manager and Staff Benefits Coordinator. I am based at York Hospital and I have worked I the Staff Benefits Team for 3 years.
My favourite event was planning and overseeing the 18th Birthday Party for the York Staff Shop. It was a fabulous day filled with fun games, freebies, goodie bags and yummy cake –which our staff absolutely loved! It was great to see people smiling and having a brilliant time.
The thing I love most about my job is communicating all our fabulous offers and discounts to our staff via our newsletters/ social media and website. I always get so excited for our staff when we have an amazing new offer to advertise and I love seeing how excited staff get when they see it.
Hello, my name is Laura Monkman and I am the Staff Shop Manager. I am based at Scarborough Hospital and I have worked in the Staff Benefits Team for 7 years.
My favourite event is the summer fairs and Christmas market. It is such a fun time out for Staff whether it’s for a 5 minute break or on their lunch time. They can meet the companies we work with and it’s always nice for them to walk away with a freebie.
The thing I love most about my job is seeing people’s reactions when we get discounted tickets in the shop. We also sell a variety of seasonal stock which saves them going into town – making life that little bit easier.
In the shop we make time to listen to everyone, even if it’s to tell us how happy they are or requests for certain products. We’re always here to offer a listening ear and a safe space to offer a bit of respite when work feels overwhelming.
