RAMSAY EMPLOYEE CLUB
Ramsay has recently negotiated a fantastic employee benefits program for its employees which will provide all Ramsay employees with the opportunity to access great discounts and deals on a huge range of products and services for a cost to employees of only $1.25 a week!
The Ramsay Employee Club will provide 4 key areas of benefits:
*card privileges – a membership card that you can flash at a huge range of stores, movies, cafes & restaurants to access immediate discounts or deals (eg. 20% of a huge range of restaurants, 15% discount at Roger David, great prices at Harvey Norman, discounted accommodation, upsized coffees at Hudsons!) – good news for our regional locations too because there is a huge range of local restaurants included – 6 in the Albury/Wodonga area, 3 in Armidale and even 2 in Tamworth!
*shopping – online access to brand name products at substantial discounts, and discounts on gift vouchers for retail stores and cinemas including $8.95 movies and 5% off vouchers for Big W, Safeway and Woolworths, discounts at Dick Smith, Tandy, Dan Murphys and BWS Liquor Stores – imagine saving 5% on your weekly grocery bill! … you have to be organised enough to log-on and order your shopping vouchers every week!
*box office – tickets to concerts, shows and sporting events before public sales – this allows you to access the very best seats available without having to stand in line at ticket stands and still get stuck down the back of the venue! Coming soon: Pink, Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, Keith Urban and the musical, Pirates of Penzence are all currently available – BEST SEATS IN THE HOUSE! (No discounted prices but access to those hard to get seats!).
*current offers – a series of regular communication tools to ensure all new offers are regular, current and communicated to our employees.

OTHER RAMSAY STAFF BENEFITS
Salary Packaging is available to permanent employees at all Ramsay Health Care sites and workplaces.
Ramsay has chosen sgfleet (formerly SMB) to provide salary packaging services. For more information on sgfleet please visit their website.
Salary Packaging is a concept that many people find confusing; but put quite simply ...
Salary packaging simply means you pay for certain personal expenses from your salary BEFORE your tax is calculated. The result is you pay less tax and therefore have more disposable income! Doesn't that sound appealing!
Private Health Insurance - staff discounts for private health insurance are available through:
- HBA (BUPA) Insurance
- Medibank Private
