LONDON, November 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
First Payroll (http://www.first-payroll.com), a payroll services provider, has partnered with Perkbox (http://www.perkbox.co.uk), a leading employee engagement platform, to launch an exciting new incentives, rewards and engagement programme for its own staff, as well as for its payroll customers.
As part of its continuing efforts to both attract and engage employees and enhance their business offering with a value-added service, First Payroll Services will now provide its in-house staff and payroll customers with free and exclusive access to over two hundred practical and recreational perks. New benefits now available via Perkbox include up to 8% off at 20,000 retail stores and 50 nationwide brands, 4% off at Amazon, money off in pubs, bars and coffee shops, heavily discounted theatre tickets and attraction day passes, corporate rates in top gym chains and half price MOTs, amongst hundreds of other benefits. Fresh perks will be added to the platform regularly and all users - both in-house staff and payroll customers - will be able to redeem these 24/7 via their own dedicated account, using Perkbox's online desktop and tablet platform and smartphone app.
As well as easy online and on-the-go redemption using the latest technology, First Payroll's in-house team will also have access to an engagement platform that is designed to enhance financial, emotional and physical wellbeing. This includes a wellness hub of professionally-made online classes in yoga, healthy cooking, exercise and meditation, a 24-hour assistance helpline and financial advice. The team will be automatically enrolled in an online internal Rewards and Recognition platform - a gamified system carefully constructed to facilitate top-down rewards and drive peer-to-peer recognition via the exchange of digital badges. Admin users will also be able to add any other perks they offer in addition to Perkbox to the platform and will be able to track return on investment via an online dashboard, which highlights how many staff are actively using the platform and how much money staff have saved.
Ian Card, Finance and Operations Director at First Payroll Services, commented: "We want to thank the First Payroll team for their constant dedication to ensuring consistently excellent levels of service. Perkbox seemed like the perfect partnership; it provided a cost-effective solution for us. We previously offered private healthcare but Perkbox brings to the table more accessible benefits that can be redeemed on a daily basis. Happy staff make for a positive working environment and a good atmosphere. Perkbox also gives our staff a common talking point and we hope to see it improve inter-team relationships."
Chieu Cao, CMO & Co-Founder at Perkbox, said: "We are very excited about our new partnership with First Payroll Services. By offering Perkbox to their customers, we are confident that they will be able to distinguish themselves from their competition and boost customer loyalty. We are delighted that they are also using Perkbox to reward their staff and look forward to seeing the results of their happier, healthier and therefore more engaged workforce."
