The CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, has selected Perkbox (www.perkbox.co.uk), to launch a new Member Rewards programme for its 140,000 members.
As part of the CIPD's continuing commitment to provide support and resources to the HR and L&D community, CIPD members will now have access to over two hundred practical and recreational perks - from discounted gym memberships and cinema tickets to cheap groceries and savings on travel - which they will be able to redeem via their own dedicated account using Perkbox's desktop platform and smartphone app.
The benefits available to CIPD members include discounts on supermarket shopping at Marks and Spencer, Sainsbury's and Tesco, money off at over 50 high street stores and 20,000 shops nationwide, money off in pubs, bars and coffee shops, as well as heavily discounted theatre tickets and attraction day passes. Members will also get corporate rates at top gym chains, discounted MOTs and money off Apple products and other tech.
The Perkbox platform also offers a suite of useful features and content for managing physical, emotional and financial wellness - from access to a library of exercise and meditation videos that can be practised at home or at the desk, to resources for obtaining free financial counselling and advice to ensure users make the most of their wages and benefits.
Saurav Chopra, co-founder and CEO of Perkbox, commented: "The CIPD is the most respected professional body in HR. The institution's purpose to champion better work and working lives is something that resonates very deeply with our own company's mission. We are proud to have been selected as a service provider for CIPD's members - for us, it's a fantastic seal of approval that what we do and represent very much aligns with their own commitment to drive positive change in the world of work."
