LONDON, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Perkbox, the UK's largest and fastest growing benefits provider has been awarded the Highly Commended gong for Best Product For Making Pay Go Further at Reward Guide's VIB Awards 2016.
Founded in January 2015, Perkbox has become the definitive employee and customer digital engagement platform for businesses of all sizes. With over 300,000 members, Perkbox also services some of the world's biggest brands including Worldpay, BUPA, AXA and British Gas, providing them with access to over 200 free and discounted perks and benefits to help businesses grow, increase engagement, acquire talent and reduce churn.
The VIB Awards recognises the very best in reward strategies and practice within all types of organisations.
Commenting on the award, Saurav Chopra, CEO and co-founder of Perkbox, said: "We have come a long way from where we started 18 months ago - a small startup with a strong mission to celebrate happy, healthy work environments across the country and to help businesses flourish and grow. We strive to be nothing less than best in class for customer and engagement platforms, so for Perkbox to be granted a Highly Commended accolade is an achievement of which we are very proud. We've made it our mission to help the country's businesses gain invaluable access to services that accelerate growth as well as to enable business owners to enjoy all the personal perks that were previously only afforded by the largest of corporations. We're looking forward to helping more organisations across the country become the employer of choice."
Perkbox addresses the gap in the market for a holistic employee engagement and wellbeing platform that not only offers employees attractive practical and salary-sacrifice benefits, but also integrates a reward & recognition capability with a platform that promotes financial, emotional and physical wellbeing.
It has become an indispensable tool for employers, MDs and HR directors. Through its intuitive, multi-platform cloud based app, it has transformed the way in which employee benefits are managed and redeemed, and has optimised the way in which managers and peers may reward and recognise a job well done. Its technology has been devised to be highly accessible to all, including non office-based employees.
Perkbox has since helped businesses become recognised as pioneers in employee engagement: Snowflake Gelato, a chain of luxury ice cream parlours in London, was recently shortlisted as a finalist for having the Most Effective Benefits Programme in this year's HR Excellence Awards, while three other businesses it has worked with have either been shortlisted or have won the prestigious Investors In People Award this year.
