LONDON, November 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Brookson (http://www.brookson.co.uk), a leading provider of accountancy, tax advice and support services, 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 employees and contractors.
As part of its continuing commitment to reward its employees and contractors, Brookson will now provide its staff and contractors with free and exclusive access to over two hundred practical and recreational perks. New benefits now available to the Brookson team and contractors 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 discounted MOTs, amongst hundreds of other benefits. Fresh perks will be added to the platform regularly and all employees 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, Brookson staff 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.
