UK employees of Enterprise Rent-A-Car are to receive a new family support benefits package through a partnership with childcare search organisation Parental Choice.
The range of benefits, available to Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s 5,000 UK-based employees from the end of November 2018, includes an interactive nursery search. Designed and implemented by Parental Choice, the service provides access to a map of nurseries classed as good and outstanding located in a five-mile radius of the Enterprise headquarters in Egham, Surrey.
Sarah-Jane Butler, founder of Parental Choice, said: “It is fantastic that Enterprise has identified the needs of working parents as a priority. The Parental Choice team and I are looking forward to making a real difference to Enterprise employees.

“Choosing childcare can be stressful for new parents who decide to return to work, so we are confident our search service will assist in the smooth transition back to work for Enterprise parents.”
UK employees will also have access to online childcare guides, employee talks and seminars relevant to working parents, as well as discounts on other Parental Choice childcare services, including searches for nannies, childminders, tutors and schools, as well as legal and payroll services.
Leigh Lafever-Ayer (pictured), UK HR director at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, said: “We are pleased to partner with Parental Choice to help support our employees who are parents. We know that managing a career and parenthood is not always easy and our aim is that Parental Choice will help our employees in some of the difficult moments, such as finding childcare and dealing with the financial aspects, as well as sharing parenting tips.
“We hope that this helps our employees find quality solutions that fit their individual needs perfectly.”
The Parental Choice package complements other family-friendly benefits offered by Enterprise Rent-A-Car, including enhanced maternity and shared parental pay, career coaching for women prior to maternity leave, a phase-back programme with full pay for parents returning from leave, an adoption reimbursement benefit, and ‘choice time’ to allow parents to take paid time off to attend activities with their children or to take care of children when they are sick.
