A Wolverhampton-based Health Cash Plan provider is celebrating after being shortlisted in not one, but two, categories in the Express & Star Business Awards 2018.

Paycare has been selected as a finalist in both the Growth & Innovation and Community Champion categories, with judges recognising its positive development strategy to enhance Policyholder services, its ability to develop, design and implement new ideas, products and services, as well as its continued drive to give back to the communities it serves.

The awards will take place on Thursday 7th June at the Wolverhampton Racecourse and will celebrate and recognise the best of the region’s businesses across a total of 11 categories.

“We’re absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted twice in this year’s awards,” explained Kevin Rogers, CEO of Paycare. “Being recognised in the Growth & Innovation category is a real testament to our team’s hard work over the last 12 months in particular, which has seen them enhance existing services and launch brand new products and partnerships, including Paycare Perks, our exclusive online platform which gives our Policyholders access to hundreds of discounts on everyday purchases.”

The organisation’s continued support of its local communities was also recognised, with its staff provided with an additional two day’s fully-paid holiday each year for the sole purpose of volunteering, taking part in events to raise funds, or donating their time to worthy causes. As a not-for-profit business itself, Paycare was launched in 1874 and has to date donated more than £2.2million to UK-wide charities and initiatives.

“We’re in this business of health because we want to make a difference,” Kevin added. “By making sure that we continue to grow and flourish, and that we help enhance the quality of life for our Policyholders through access to a wide range of preventative services, we’re able to continue to give even more back to causes that help many others within our society.

“We’re very much looking forward to the awards evening in June to be celebrating and recognising our successes over the last year with some of our brilliant team and fellow Wolverhampton businesses. We’d also like to wish other shortlisted organisations the very best of luck on the night!”

A well-respected and dedicated Health Cash Plan provider, Paycare has helped individuals and families protect themselves against everyday healthcare costs and bills for over 140 years.
