The team at Paycare welcomed Beverley Nielsen, Liberal Democrat candidate for West Midlands Mayor, to its offices in George Street on Thursday 16th February for a full tour of the premises, a meet-and-greet with the team, and to learn about the ongoing investment it places in enhancing the health and wellbeing of the region’s residents, and subsequently the money that it gives back to charity.

Beverley, a candidate in the election on 4th May, has a strong background in business through her previous positions as Regional Director of CBI and Group Board Director of AGA Rangemaster plc, a FTSE 250 business. In addition, she has been Chief Executive of Heart of England Tourist Board and Director of Employer Engagement and Corporate affairs at Birmingham City University. She is an Associate Fellow at Warwick Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick.

“We were absolutely thrilled to have Beverley visit us at Paycare House,” explained Kevin Rogers, CEO. “With her passion for the West Midlands and knowledge in business, it was fantastic to host her and I know that our team really valued the chance to talk to her about her own plans for the region, as well as for them to share details of some of the really exciting developments we’ve been working on within the business.”

“She has a clear passion and interest in the success of Paycare, and we were pleased to have showcased that health cash plans aren’t about selling premiums to customers, but much more about preventative healthcare, budgeting and saving costs further down the line. And with us able to donate every other spare penny to charities, initiatives and good causes, we’re in a very positive position to have donated over £2million to date.”

Beverley Nielsen added: “I was delighted to visit the team at Paycare. As an example not-for-profit organisation, it is focused on providing cash plans which help tackle the increasing challenges we face surrounding our health. Offering a range of solutions and support, I look forward to learning more about Paycare’s business and ongoing charitable work, along with their own approach to employee care, health and wellbeing.”
