Liquid Friday partners with Perkbox to launch contractor rewards programme
Liquid Friday has partnered with Perkbox to launch an incentives, rewards and engagement programme to more than 2,000 contractors.
Liquid Friday says, as part of its continuing commitment to ensure its contractors are actively engaged, it has provided its employees with access to over a hundred practical, recreational and salary-sacrifice benefits and perks – from free spa days to discounted gym memberships, savings on childcare, cinema tickets, groceries and travel. New perks and benefits will also be added to the platform regularly. All employees will be able to simply redeem these via their own dedicated account using Perkbox’s online platform and smartphone app.
New benefits available to Liquid Friday staff include up to 6% off at supermarkets including Marks and Spencer, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons, money off in 50 high street stores and 20,000 shops nationwide, two for one and 50% off in more than 6,500 restaurants, money off in pubs, bars and coffee shops, heavily discounted theatre tickets and attraction day passes, corporate rates in top gym chains, half price MOTs, money off Apple products and other tech and a free month’s travel in London on an Oyster Card, amongst thousands of other benefits.
Joe Taffurelli, operations manager at Liquid Friday, commented, “Although we have a loyal contractor base, employee engagement and retention will always be difficult. From April, we will face fresh challenges as the government introduces new legislation, restricting the money contractors can claim on travel and subsistence costs. Now is a perfect time for us to join Perkbox. The fantastic benefits and perks offered on the platform will allow us to make a real difference to our contractors’ take-home pay and overall employment package. We are delighted to be one of the first umbrella companies to work with Perkbox and hope that our market leading position will help us to attract, engage and retain top talent in the future.”
Saurav Chopra, CEO and co-founder of Perkbox, said, “Employee benefits are becoming a necessary buffer against the financial blow that is poised to hit umbrella companies and its contractors when the new legislation comes into effect next month. We are very excited to be working with Liquid Friday and hope that the perks on our platform will help the umbrella company to hold its position as an attractive employer in the face of disruptive change.”
