Major UK Retailers Added To Employee Savings Programme
Released on: June 02, 2011, 5:42 am
Four more major UK retailers have been added to Edenred’s
extensive employee savings platform, enabling businesses to offer their
staff even more opportunities to save money.
The latest retailers to offer discounts on their lifestyle products are
award-winning hairdressers Toni&Guy; beauty retailer Crabtree & Evelyn; online wine
retailer Naked Wines and Virgin Experience Days which offer gifts from fine-dining
restaurants, spa breaks, theatre trips and holidays.
These companies boost the existing portfolio of discounted vouchers and reloadable
cards to more than 50 major retail names, while at the same time helping employers
to motivate staff with incentives and flexible benefits.
Each employee registers on a dedicated website and can tailor their requirements to
ensure they receive discounts that fit their lifestyle and interest. These special
offers can also be passed on to family, ensuring that the benefit is spread further.
Wayne Harrington, product manager at Edenred, comments: “We’re pleased to be working with these major UK retailers to add a wide range of
discounts to our employee savings platform which in turn provides businesses with a
valuable tool in their motivation and engagement strategy.
“In the current economic climate and with VAT increases and tax changes in full
force, there is pressure on disposable incomes. Employers who join employee savings
schemes can effectively give their staff a pay rise of almost £1000 a year pre tax,
at minimal cost to the business.”
