A positive employee experience equates to a positive customer experience, so it’s absolutely worth the investment. We understand that our staff are individuals in different stages of their lives, with different responsibilities, circumstances and lifestyles. We therefore want them to have the flexibility and autonomy to choose what works best for them. By offering a personalised reward system through our partnership with Perkbox, we as an employer ensure that we can meet the needs of the business as well as the individual needs of our staff.”
