LONDON, October 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
- Employee engagement company Perkbox launches #PerkboxHappyTeams selfie competition celebrating the UK's most positive work cultures
In the wake of UK's apparent productivity slump, employee happiness and engagement has never been more relevant. To bring this issue to a head, Perkbox (http://www.perkbox.co.uk ), UK's leading employee benefits provider has launched a nationwide call-out for the countries happiest teams to take a selfie snapshot of their positive work culture as part its #PerkboxHappyTeams competition.
The top three best entries as voted by the general public will win six, three and one month's worth of free, stress-melting, creativity-boosting office massages respectively, for all hard working staff to enjoy.
From snaps of teams in the throes of doing shamelessly fun team-building exercises or enjoying a well deserved end-of-the-month pizza feast - companies with brilliant work cultures are invited to capture their vibe on film; creatively and visually showcasing why their organisation leads by example in terms of workplace happiness.
Entrants simply upload their entries via this form on Facebook with a caption to accompany their picture. Once done, entrants are then encouraged to share the link with colleagues, clients, friends and family to cultivate the votes. The three team selfies with the most votes wins. The competition ends midnight on 30 October 2015.
Saurav Chopra, CEO and co-founder of Perkbox commented: "Positivity and happiness is infectious, and this competition provides a means of celebrating UK businesses who are leading the way in creating a positive, motivated and happy work environment. We've had some really interesting and hilarious entries so far, so we're looking forward to seeing what other companies around the country - big or small - are doing to make staff engaged and happy."
NOTES TO EDITORS
*According to data released from the Office for National Statistics, UK's productivity growth is at its slowest level since the 1990s. Moreover, UK has the second slowest productivity rate in a group of the world's richest nations, including USA, Germany, France, Italy and Canada. Low morale, uncompetitive pay, slow infrastructural growth, regulation and even the apparent 'epidemic' of chronic email checking have all been cited as factors responsible for UK workers' productivity slump, according to a report published in The Independent in July 2015.
