Perkbox is on a mission to create a better society, by helping employees succeed in life and work. Through its employee experience platform, it offers access to health insurance, through Perkbox Medical; discounts and freebies from brands, through Perks; and a survey tool that lets a firm gather and act on employee feedback. Perkbox serves companies from SMEs to large companies such as Whole Foods, Nando’s, Caffè Nero and Levi Strauss & Co.
Headquartered in London, Perkbox opened a second office in Sheffield in early 2017. In 2018, it began expanding internationally, opening a third office in Paris and a fourth office in Australia in 2019. By working closely with customers, Perkbox wants to improve the employee experience of 100 million employees by 2025 – 100 times more than the current base.
“Employees spend a third of their lives at work, but there is no longer a clear split between life at work and life outside of it. According to our research, three in 10 employees feel like they’re regularly being kept up at night thinking about work,” says Saurav Chopra, co-founder and CEO of Perkbox. “Employers have a responsibility to ensure they’re providing their staff with the ability to live financially, physically and mentally healthy lives. That’s why Perkbox has created a multi-product platform that gives businesses the opportunity to provide a great employee experience, retaining talent and becoming the employer of choice.”
Perkbox’s focus on making employees feel engaged and feel valued has helped the company thrive, despite tough economic conditions. “We’re perhaps one of the few companies whose products become more relevant during times of uncertainty. What’s more, it’s a rewarding feeling to be able to sell products that can make a meaningful difference to the lives of employees.”
