NOTES TO EDITOR
ABOUT GREEN LANTERN GROUP
Green Lantern was originally formed in 2002 by four IT contractors, who have seen the days of the IT and freelance market rise, fall and rise again. With over 15 years in the contracting industry and after working with so many different contractor payroll services and never finding true satisfaction in any of them, they decided to turn to one of the big four accountancy firms to provide a payroll management solution especially tailored round contractor payroll, which would suit the individual needs of contractors and freelancers in the UK. They now work with a number of Recruitment Agencies and are proud to offer their contractors the option of working through an Umbrella Service, the Construction Industry Scheme or opening a Limited Company.
Perkbox is a cloud-based employee perks and engagement platform for businesses of all sizes, giving employers and employees a range of great perks, social reward and recognition tools and health and wellness platforms that help employers promote the financial, emotional and physical wellbeing of their team.
As well as easy online redemption of perks on desktop and via smartphone app, Perkbox members also receive a seasonal surprise 'Perkbox' box stuffed with treats and free goodies delivered straight to offices.
Perkbox was set up with the belief that the best companies to work for look after their teams and value their staff. The most successful businesses are comprised of people who are engaged, satisfied and loyal. Providing perks and engagement tools helps build stronger teams and incentivises workers to aspire to greatness.
Until recently, only large corporations could afford to pay for employee perks. Perkbox's easy and wholly customised offering allows SMEs to reward and incentivise their growing team with perks that help build a happy work culture with an investment in line with their budgets.
