A prestigious hotel in Scotland has been inundated with positive feedback from associates after signing a partnership with Hey Girls.

The Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa in St Andrews became a commercial partner of ours in the summer of 2023, stocking our products in associate facilities across the hotel complex.

The partnership was introduced by Janine Brown, Director of Human Resources and supported by the Executive Team across the resort.

Janine said: “Our associate’s wellbeing is at the heart of decision making throughout the resort and it is our belief that we provide a positive and supportive environment by doing the right thing by looking after their needs.

“We believe that no associate should have to worry about period products while at work. I approached the General Manager about the Hey Girls initiative by stocking the products for free and it was immediately supported as part of the associate experience.

“The feedback we’ve received from associates has been fantastic. Everyone loves the products, and personally it makes you feel like you’re creating a caring working environment.”

Every purchase made through the partnership is matched with a donation to our network of more than 350 community partners through our buy one, donate one model.

Janine added that the feeling of giving back to both the wider community and the associates has made the partnership even more worthwhile.

She said: “If you look after your people, they will look after your business. It’s important to keep that people-first focus.

“The hospitality industry had been hit hard by Covid and we wanted to lead by example and support our associates in as many ways as possible.

“Other initiatives we offer include free associate meals during their shifts, subsidised taxi rides, monthly wellbeing newsletter including wellbeing activities throughout the year and monthly events.

“We want to do the right thing as an employer and give back to our associates.”

Kate Smith, Co-Founder and Director of Hey Girls, added: “It is brilliant having Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort and Spa in our network of hundreds of fabulous partner businesses.

“It is fantastic to hear our partnership is having such a positive effect on staff.

“The beauty of working with Hey Girls is that not only are you supporting the people in your organisation, but making a genuine difference to those living in communities across the UK experiencing period poverty.”
