HSF Health Plan Malta, a leading firm that delivers medical cover and additional wellbeing benefits to company employees, touts its history of partnering “with forward-thinking employers, fostering healthier and happier workplaces”.
In early 2023, it joined hands with the Bigbon Group, a renowned name in Malta’s retail landscape.
“Our collaboration aims to empower Bigbon Group to invest in their employees’ wellbeing, demonstrating the potential of our HSF Health Plans to drive positive change by fostering a workplace that is more vibrant, engaged, and productive,” the company explained.
Let’s take a deeper look at the story of Bigbon Group and the transformative impact of its partnership HSF Health Plan Malta.
Prioritising health for a stronger workforce
Bigbon Group, a prominent player in Malta’s retail sector, has earned a strong reputation as an employer of choice. Their recent expansion plans, which include opening five flagship stores at The Shoreline Mall in spring 2024, have put recruitment at the top of their business priorities. Given the competitive nature of Malta’s recruitment pool, employers must offer comprehensive health benefits to attract and retain skilled employees.
“Our commitment to employee well-being through HSF Health Plan has been a key factor in making us an attractive employer for talent,” said Catherine Psaila, HR manager at Bigbon Group. Over the past few months, Bigbon Group’s employees have enjoyed a wide range of medical benefits, including doctor’s visits, prescriptions, dental and optical care.
“Our marketing campaigns highlight the benefits we offer our employees, such as 25 per cent discounts on all our brands, flexible hours for part-time staff, and the HSF health benefits,” shared Catherine Psaila. These benefits have significantly contributed to the success of their recruitment efforts for The Shoreline Mall, giving candidates more money in their pockets and greater control over their physical and financial well-being.
In summary, the partnership between HSF Health Plan and Bigbon Group has “delivered tangible benefits of prioritising employee well-being in today’s competitive job market.”
