LONDON, November 3, 2016

NWM, an umbrella company providing payroll solutions for contractors and recruiters, has partnered with Perkbox, 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 improve retention and loyalty, NWM 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 team at NWM via Perkbox include up to 8% off at 20,000 retail stores and 50 nationwide brands, 4% off at Amazon, two for one or 50% off in more than 6,500 restaurants with a free tastecard, free mobile phone insurance, money off in pubs, bars and coffee shops, heavily discounted theatre tickets and attraction day passes, corporate rates in top gym chains and half price MOTs, amongst hundreds of other benefits. Fresh perks will be added to the platform regularly and all employees and contractors 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, NWM staff and contractors 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.

Graham Williams, Company Director at NWM, commented: “We wanted to take our investment in employee engagement to the next level to reward the hard work of staff and contractors on a more regular basis. Perkbox seemed like a natural partnership and we look forward to seeing how the platform can make us more attractive both to our staff and contractors.”

Chieu Cao, CMO & Co-Founder at Perkbox, said: “We are acutely aware of how important it is that staff in client-facing roles, such as those at NWM, are happy and engaged at work. NWM pride themselves on their stand-apart customer service and having Perkbox as a benefit will further motivate employees and contractors, helping the business to maintain these high standards. We are delighted to have partnered with NWM and look forward to helping them to transform themselves into a happier, healthier and thus more attractive place to work.”
